2'-Benzoyloxycinnamaldehyde (BCA) induces apoptosis in human cancer cells through ROS generation. BCA upregulates proapoptotic genes such as activating transcription factor 3 (ATF3), NSAID-activated gene 1 protein (NAG-1), and growth arrest and DNA-damage-inducible protein alpha (GADD45A) in prostate cancer cells. These genes are known to be induced by(More)
An investigation was made of the variations in growth and grain yield in response to increased exposure to UV-B radiation of Japanese lowland rice (Oryza sativa L.) in a cool rice-growing region. Two cultivars, UV-resistant cv. ‘Sasanishiki’ and UV-sensitive cv. ‘Norin 1’, were examined in a lowland field at Kashimadai (37◦28′E, 141◦06′E) in Miyagi(More)
Cedrela sinensis has been widely used in traditional Oriental medicine to treat a variety of diseases. However, little is known about the cellular actions by which this plant mediates its antioxidant effects. In this study, activity-guided fractionations of C. sinensis leaves were performed using column chromatographic techniques as well as biological(More)
