This is the first report that a CB2-selective inverse agonist, JTE-907, has an anti-inflammatory effect in vivo, and how the inverse agonists showed the same effect as Win55212-2 and Delta(9)-THC is discussed.

The genomic bias in the transcription of the TaBx genes in hexaploid wheat originated in the diploid progenitors and has been retained through the polyploidization, indicating the homoeologs on the B genome generally contributed the most to the Bx biosynthesis inhexaploids wheat.

A cDNA of TaBx1 is isolated, which encodes the first enzyme of the Bx pathway of wheat, suggesting that the non-Bx phenotype of barley is attributable to the loss of Bx biosynthetic genes in Triticeae species.

Because transgenic plants constitutively produce four- to six-fold higher amounts of endogenous cytokinin than wild-type plants, it is concluded that cytokinins are indispensable for control of endogenous levels of SA and JA.

The cloned P450 species showed 76–79% identity at the amino acid level to the corresponding maize P 450 species CYP71C1–C4, which are also required for DIBOA biosynthesis, and the wheat P450 cDNAs were heterologously expressed in the yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) strain AH22.

The results suggest that rotenone binds close to, but not at a site identical to, the location for ubiquinone in the ubiquin one-catalytic reaction site, whereas the 5'alpha-epirotenone-binding site overlaps that for quinone due to a structural modification of E-ring moiety.
