Maternal transmission of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) allows us to generate mtDNA congenic strain by repeating backcrosses of female mice to male mice of an inbred strain, which carries different mtDNA haplotype from that of the female progenitor. Since genetic backgrounds of inbred strains commonly used (e.g., C57BL/6J [B6] and BALB/c) are mainly derived from(More)
Plant-cultured cells of Catharanthus roseus converted trans-resveratrol into its 3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, 4'-O-β-D-glucopyranoside, 3-O-(6-O-β-D-xylopyranosyl)-β-D-glucopyranoside, and 3-O-(6-O-α-L-arabinopyranosyl)-β-D-glucopyranoside. The 3-O-(6-O-β-D-xylopyranosyl)-β-D-glucopyranoside and 3-O-(6-O-α-L-arabinopyranosyl)-β-D-glucopyranoside compounds of(More)
A glucosyltransferase (GT) of Phytolacca americana (PaGT3) was expressed in Escherichia coli and purified for the synthesis of two O-β-glucoside products of trans-resveratrol. The reaction was moderately regioselective with a ratio of 4′-O-β-glucoside: 3-O-β-glucoside at 10:3. We used not only the purified enzyme but also the E. coli cells containing the(More)
Two glucosyltransferase isozymes from Phytolacca americana, PaGT3 and PaGT2, catalyzed stereo- and regio-selective monoglucosylation of 3,5,3',4'-tetrahydroxy-trans-stilbene to yield 3,5,3',4'-tetrahydroxy-trans-stilbene-4'-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside.
