Lepidine, or 4-methylquinoline, is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound. Its methyl group is fairly acidic, allowing for condensations to occur at this position, especially when the nitrogen is quaternized. It is used in the preparation of certain dyes.
Sulpicia Lepidina was the wife of Flavius Cerialis, prefect of the Ninth Cohort of Batavians, stationed at Vindolanda in Roman Britain about the turn of the 1st century AD. She is the first person known to have received a birthday party invitation.
Lepidoneura grisealis is a moth in the family Crambidae. It was described by George Hampson in 1900. It is found in Xinjiang, China.
Lysidine is a derivative of 2-imidazoline. It is a colorless solid with basic properties and soluble in organic solvents. It is used as a precursor to other compounds of pharmaceutical interest.
Lysidine is an uncommon nucleoside, rarely seen outside of tRNA. It is a derivative of cytidine in which the carbonyl is replaced by the amino acid lysine. The third position in the anti-codon of the Isoleucine-specific tRNA, is typically changed from a cytidine which would pair with guanosine to a lysidine which will base pair with adenosine. Uridine could not be used at this position even though it is a conventional partner for adenosine since it will also "wobble base pair " with guanosine. So lysidine allows better translation fidelity.
Lepidoneura is a genus of moths of the family Crambidae.
Lepidoneura africalis is a moth in the family Crambidae. It was described by George Hampson in 1899. It is found in the Gambia.
