difficile large toxins reported here led us to examine a commercial culture filtrate (CFil) to determine nUPLC-MSE utility for analysis of a complex C.
Interestingly, label-free quantification of CFil identified four proteins (S-layer protein, TcdA, TcdB, and NAD-specific glutamate dehydrogenase) all detected in significantly large amounts.
CFIL is owned by Citibank NA, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Citibank Overseas Investment Corp, which has a rating outstanding of A1 with a "negative" outlook assigned by Moody's.
The rating assigned to CFIL's ELD programme is primarily based on the strengths CFIL derives from its parent such as access to management, funding and risk management systems.
Relying on the policy underlying the application of the California Franchise Investment Law, the court concluded that Pennsylvania law was contrary to the fundamental public policy of California embodied in the CFIL and that, as a result, "the choice-of-law provision in the parties' agreement [was] unenforceable for purposes of determining the validity of the arbitration provision."
(6) In that case, the franchisee claimed that a Pennsylvania choice-of-law clause was unconscionable, as enforcement of that clause would effectively "negate" the CFIL, which states that it may not be waived.
