(1997) who reported that antigen stored at 0-4AdegC showed best activity.Contrary to this, our study results do not match with the findings of Hromatka and Adler (1969) where scientists were of the point of view that thiomersal sodium or sodium azide did not prevent contamination if they are used alone but in combinations.
Four of these synthesized compounds (21-24) (Figure 9) derived from the azide 18 showed good activity against the HIV-1 PR and three mutants (G48V, V82F, and V82A).

In keeping with previous reports, these results lead us to consider that recruitment of [gamma]c to IL-7/IL-7R[alpha] which occurs in sequential dimerization model would be impossible in 4[degrees]C and sodium azide medium, suggesting that the epitope masking may result from conformational changes of surface [gamma]c protein with preassembled heterodimer model [12, 13, 19].
2-Amino-3-((4- fluorophenyl)thio)naphthalene-1,4-dione (5b) Compound 5b was synthesized by the reaction of 0.05 g (0.13 mmol) 2,3-bis(4-fluorophenylthio) naphthalene-1,4-dione (4b) with 0.17 g (2.6 mmol) sodium azide.
