Effects of oolong tea on plasma antioxidative capacity in mice loaded with restraint stress assessed using the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) assay.
Findings suggested that oolong tea has beneficial effects on health related to its antioxidative action, which is probably due to the antioxidative properties of the tea.
Polyphenols from wolfberry and their bioactivities.
Bioactive bibenzyl derivatives and fluorenones from Dendrobium nobile.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the 60% ethanol extract of the stems of Dendrobium nobile using the DPPH assay led to the isolation of two new bibenzyl derivatives and a new fluorenone, nobilone, together with seven known compounds.

The unique structural features of CL as well as the current understanding of CL-based molecular mechanisms of mitophagy and apoptosis are discussed.
Arenobufagin, a natural bufadienolide from toad venom, induces apoptosis and autophagy in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells through inhibition of PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway.
The underlying antineoplastic mechanisms of arenobufagin that involve cross talk between apoptosis and autophagy via inhibition of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway are elucidated.
Contribution of the antioxidative property of astaxanthin to its protective effect on the promotion of cancer metastasis in mice treated with restraint stress.
Coumarin and chromen-4-one analogues as tautomerase inhibitors of macrophage migration inhibitory factor: discovery and X-ray crystallography.
To the knowledge, these compounds are the most potent tautomerase inhibitors of MIF.
