    Notes: Abstract Growth rates of mammalian young are closely linked to the ability of the mother to provide nutrients; thus, milk composition and yield provide a direct measure of maternal investment during lactation in many mammals. We studied changes in milk composition and output throughout lactation in a free-ranging population of the omnivorous bat, Phyllostomus hastatus. Fat and dry matter of milk increased from 9 to 21% and from 21 to 35% of wet mass, respectively, throughout lactation. Energy increased from 6 to 9 kJ · g−1 wet mass, primarily due to the increase in fat concentration. Total sugar levels decreased slightly but non-significantly. Mean sugar level was 4.0% of wet mass. Protein concentration increased from 6 to 11% of wet mass at peak lactation and then decreased as pups approached weaning age. Total milk energy output until pups began to forage was 3609 kJ. Milk levels of Mg, Fe, Ca, K, and Na averaged 0.55 ± 0.26, 0.23 ± 0.2, 8.75 ± 4.17, 5.42 ± 2.11, and 9.87 ± 4.3 mg · g−1 dry matter, respectively. Of the minerals studied, calcium appears to be most limiting in this species. The high degree of variability in foraging time, milk composition and milk yield between individuals at the same stage of lactation could potentially yield high variance in reproductive success among females of this polygynous species.

    Notes: Summary Postnatal changes in wing morphology, flight ability, muscle morphology, and histochemistry were investigated in the little brown bat, Myotis lucifugus. The pectoralis major, acromiodeltoideus, and quadriceps femoris muscles were examined using stains for myofibrillar ATPase, succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), and mitochondrial α-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (α-GPDH) enzyme reactions. Bats first exhibited spontaneous, drop-evoked flapping behavior at 10 days, short horizontal flight at 17 days, and sustained flight at 24 days of age. Wing loading decreased and aspect ratio increased during postnatal development, each reaching adult range before the onset of sustained flight. Histochemically, fibers from the three muscles were undifferentiated at birth and had lower oxidative and glycolytic capacities compared to other age groups. Cross-sectional areas of fibers from the pectoralis and acromiodeltoideus muscles increased significantly at an age when dropevoked flapping behavior was first observed, suggesting that the neuromuscular mechanism controlling flapping did not develop until this time. Throughout the postnatal growth period, pectoralis and acromiodeltoideus muscle mass and fiber cross-sectional area increased significantly. By day 17 the pectoralis muscle had become differentiated in glycolytic capacity, as indicated by the mosaic staining pattern for α-GPDH. By contrast, the quadriceps fibers were relatively large at birth and slowly increased in size during the postnatal period. Fiber differentiation was evident at the time young bats began to fly, as indicated by a mosaic pattern of staining for myosin ATPase. These results indicate that flight muscles (pectoralis and acromiodeltoideus) are less well developed at birth and undergo rapid development just before the onset of flight. By contrast the quadriceps femoris muscle, which is required for postural control, is more developed at birth than the flight muscles and grows more slowly during subsequent development.

    Description / Table of Contents: Ein chelatkontolliere Weg zu di-und tetasubstituierten γ-Lactonen - Stereoselektivität von Lewis-Säre-indzierten Additionen an chirale β-Formylcarbonsäure-methylesterDie chiralen β-Formylcarbonsäure-methylester 1a-1h liefern mit Allyltrimethylsilan/TiCl4 disubstituierte und tetrasubstituierte γ-Lactone 3a-3h mit mäßigen bis exzellenten Diastereoselektivitäten. Andere Lewis-Säuren sind weniger selektiv. Die Bildung von siebengliedrigen Chelaten 1 · TiCl4 wurde in einigen Fällen NMR-spektroskopisch eindeutig nachgewiesen. Trichlormethyltitan zeigt ein ähnliches Selektivitätsmuster wie die Reagentienkombination Allylsilan/TiCl4. Die Aldehyde 1a-1d, 1g und 1h werden hauptsächlich in trans-γ-Lactone umgewandelt, während 1f unter geeigneten Bedingungen im Überschuß das cis-γ-Lacton 3f liefert. Diese Ergebnisse werden unter Berücksichtigung des Felkin-Anh-Modells und der Chelatbildung diskutiert. Außerdem werden weitere Modellreaktionen mit den einfacheren chiralen Aldehyden 5 und 7 sowie mit den Acetalen 9a/b und 11a/b vorgestellt. Diese unterstreichen die Bedeutung der Chelatkontrolle bei den Additionen an die β-Formylester 1.
    Notes: On reaction with allyltrimethylsilane/TiCl4, chiral methyl β-for-mylcarboxylates 1a-1h provide disubstituted and tetrasubstituted γ-lactones 3a-3h with moderate to excellent diastereoselectivities. Other Lewis acids are less selective. The formation of seven-membered ring chelates 1 · TiCl4 has been proven unambiguously by NMR spectroscopy in several cases. Trichloromethyltitanium displays a selectivity pattern similar to the reagen combination allylsilane/TiCl4. Aldehydes 1a-1d, 1g, and 1h give primarily trans-γ-lactones, whereas under appropriate conditions 1f affords an excess of cis-γ-lactone 3f. These results are discussed with regard to the Felkin-Anh model and to chelate formation. Model studies with simpler chiral aldehydes 5 and 7 as well as with acetals 9a/b and 11a/b are presented and discussed. They emphasize the importance of chelate control in additions to β-formyl esters 1.
