Orientation illusions occur when the inducing figure is a line or grating (the tilt illusion) or a square outline frame (the rod-and-frame illusion). In the range of inducing figure tilts between vertical and horizontal, the tilt illusion describes one cycle of positive (direct) and negative (indirect) effects but the rod-and-frame illusion describes two(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the ability of various poly(alpha-hydroxy esters) to support the in vitro propagation of murine embryonic stem (ES) cells in an undifferentiated state. To this end, ES cell colonization, growth and Oct-4 immunoreactivity following a 48 h culture period upon poly((D,L)-lactide), poly((L)-lactide), poly(glycolide) and(More)
The title compound, C(10)H(8)O(4), is one of the coumarins existing in Morinda citrifolia L (Noni). The chromenone ring system is approximately planar with a maximum deviation of 0.0208 (14) Å. The meth-oxy group does not deviate from this plane [C-O-C-C torsion angle = -1.5 (3)°], indicating that the whole mol-ecule is almost planar. In the crystal(More)
Morinda citrifolia L. has been used for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases, including cancer. This study was undertaken to evaluate the anti-angiogenic effect of M. citrifolia fruits and leaves. Anti-angiogenic activity was evaluated in vivo using the chick chorioallantoic membrane assay. Bioactivity-guided fractionation and isolation were(More)
