The Journal of Physiology
The estimations could not be made so exactly as in the case of the salivary
secretion, but the general result was the same, that the laevorotary form was
about twice as active as the racemic variety. These results indicate that the two
Journal of the Chemical Society
In the fermentation in question, therefore, the bacteria have, in decomposing the
inactive calcium lactate, attacked the dextroi-otary molecules by preference,
leaving the laevorotary molecules, or calcium sarcolactate, in the free state.
The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
In combination with morphine, the laevorotary base proved more toxic to mice
than til-hyoscine. It may be remarked that the l-scopolamine hydrobromide used
by Smith gave an optical rotation of only — l9.5°, while that given for the pure ...

If the fermentation is not interrupted, the laevorotary molecules are apparently
also attacked and destroyed by the fermentative activity of the bacteria. This
fermentation of calcium lactate is, therefore, very similar to that of calcium
glycerate by ...

... new glyceric acid is itself indisputably dextrorotary, although we cannot yet
assign an exact value for its optical activity, in consequence of the facility with
which it passes, partially, at any rate, into an anhydride, which is strongly

and Cushing* both found that the latter, when tested physiologically, was only
half as potent as the former, and this was explained by the fact that the artificial
product contained two isomeric varieties, one laevorotary and one dextrorotary, ...
John Matthew Fortescue-Brickdale, 1910
Experience has shown that most animal and vegetable proteins contain only
laevorotary amino-acids. The organism disposes of enzymes with the specific
function of breaking down and building up proteins from the laevorotary types.

Menthol from oil of peppermint is laevorotary [a]d = — 59"1°. It forms colourless
crystals, melting at 42°, boiling at 212°, and of specific gravity -890 at 20°. Heated
with anhydrous CuSO4 it gives cymene C10Hu. It is related to menthone as an ...

Salter, Lerman and I8 in 1935 assayed on myxedematous subjects some dextro
and some laevorotary thyroxine, and reached the conclusion that these isomers
were equally active physiologically. Later work, however, has proved this to have
