Phlorotannins have been reported to demonstrate several biological properties, including antioxidant activity, and activities useful in the treatment of diabetic complications and in chemoprevention of several vascular diseases. In this study, we focused on the apoptosis induced by dieckol, a marine algal phlorotannin isolated from Ecklonia stolonifera, on(More)
The viral genome-linked protein (VPg) of Potyviruses is covalently attached to the 5' end of the genomic RNA. Towards biophysical characterization, the VPg coding region of Cardamom mosaic virus (CdMV) was amplified from the cDNA and expressed in E. coli. Most of the expressed VPg aggregated as inclusion bodies that were solubilized with urea and refolded(More)
Anacardic acid (AA, 2-hydroxy-6-pentadecylbenzoic acid), a constituent of the cashew-nut shell, has a variety of beneficial effects on the treatment of cancer and tumors. However, the fact that AA induces ER stress and autophagy in cancer cell is not known. We investigated the effect of AA on ER-stress and autophagy-induced cell death in cancer cells.(More)
The effect of exogenous melatonin (1 mg/kg) on light pulse (LP) induced phase shifts of the circadian locomotor activity rhythm was studied in the nocturnal field mouse Mus booduga. Three phase response curves (PRCs: LP, control, and experimental) were constructed to study the effect of co-administration of light and melatonin at various circadian times(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most aggressive malignant diseases and is highly resistant to conventional chemotherapy. Neferine, a major bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloid derived from the embryos of Nelumbo nucifera, has been reported a few physiological activities. However, the mechanisms of anticancer effects are not well understood and its(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most aggressive malignant diseases and is highly resistant to conventional chemotherapy. Therefore, HCC requires more effective prevention and treatment strategies. 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) remains the most widely used chemotherapeutic drug for the treatment of gastrointestinal,(More)
In continuation of previous efforts to investigate the biological potency of tetrahydropyridinol derivatives, the present study synthesized three target compounds: N-(bromoacetyl)-3-carboxyethyl-2,6-diphenyl-4-O-(pentafluorobenzoyl)-Δ3-tetra-hydropyridine (5a), N-(chloroacetyl)-3-carboxyethyl-2,6-diphenyl-4-O-(pentafluorobenzoyl)-Δ3-tetrahydropyridine (5b)(More)
