It is usually asserted that West German New Leftists "discovered the 3rd World" within the pivotal decade of the Sixties. Quinn Slobodian upsets that storyline by means of starting with contributors from the 3rd global themselves: scholars from Africa, Asia, and Latin the USA who arrived on West German campuses in huge numbers within the early Nineteen Sixties.

Each of the production medium cultures was then tested for alkaloid formation. By using this colony selection method, it was possible to isolate those colonies which were originally high-yielding, but had reverted, and also those which were high-yielding but were out-competed by lowyielding cell lines. The colonies which continued to produce highyields of alkaloids, after reculture on agar and in liquid, were stable high-yielding ones and could be continously subcultured. 3 % of the total cell dry weight.
30 an aliquot was measured with the appropriate antibody. Figure 3b shows clearly both the presence and location of ajmalicine and Figure 3c that of serpentine. This experiment verifies that the method used is absolutely valid in the specific determination of the alkaloid under investigation. Some of the results obtained by the RIA method were counterchecked by the standard fluorimetric thin layer technique using a Zeiss TLC-scanner KM 3. II. Cell Culture Work 1. InfZuence of Medium Composition on AZkaloid Formation Callus and cell suspension cultures of C.
In our case, condition 1) is fulfilled since the variant strain is capable of producing substantial product in the absence of any added precursor. Short or long term feeding experiments, with trace amounts of highly labeled serpentine, did not reveal any metabolic turnover in this cell strain, so condition 2) is also fulfilled and for condition 3) the tolerance of the culture towards the added precursor should be revealed by the response in cell yield. The influence of 3 classes of precursors on alkaloid biosynthesis is shown in Table 3.
