The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic affecting the human respiratory system severely challenges public health and urgently demands for increasing our understanding of COVID-19 pathogenesis, especially host factors facilitating virus infection and replication. SARS-CoV-2 was reported to enter cells via binding to ACE2

The alkanolamine 2-aminoethanol (NH(2)CH(2)CH(2)OH), otherwise known as monoethanolamine (MEA), is a widely used solvent for carbon capture, yet relatively little is known about its atmospheric chemistry. The hydroxyl radical initiated oxidation of MEA is thought to predominantly form the α-aminoalkyl

Monolayer cultures of rat hepatocytes have been examined for their ability to secrete ethanolamine plasmalogen as a component of nascent lipoproteins. In culture medium from these cells, ethanolamine plasmalogen comprises approx. 20-30% of total ethanolamine glycerophospholipids when measured either as

Concentrations of putative neuroactive substances glutamate, aspartate, gamma-aminobutyric acid, glycine, proline and ethanolamine were determined in ventricular cerebrospinal fluid collected in patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, pain syndromes or cerebellar tremor. Values are similar to those given in the literature

Ethanolamine is a compound that can be readily derived from cell membranes and that some bacteria can use as a source of carbon and/or nitrogen. The complex biology and chemistry of this process has been under investigation since the 1970s
