Regulatory T cells and Atherosclerosis.
The importance of Tregs in many autoimmune diseases and experimental atherosclerosis has been established in in vivo and in vitro studies, however, the roles in the clinical setting remains to be further characterized. Expand
Screening and identification of antimicrobial compounds from Streptomyces bottropensis suppressing rice bacterial blight.
Two bioactive compounds showing antimicrobial activities against Xoo strain KACC 10331 were isolated from a Streptomyces bottropensis strain and were shown to exert different bioactivities in vitro and in rice leaf explants. Expand
Isoalantolactone from Inula helenium caused Nrf2-mediated induction of detoxifying enzymes.
Investigation of the detoxifying enzyme-inducing potential of isoalantolactone found it to be a candidate for chemoprevention and acts as potent phase 2 enzyme inducer by stimulating the accumulation of Nrf2 in the nucleus. Expand
PGK1 Induction by a Hydrogen Peroxide Treatment Is Suppressed by Antioxidants in Human Colon Carcinoma Cells
The data suggest that phosphoglycerate kinase 1 might be a potential protein biomarker of intracellular oxidative status. Expand
Significance of p27kip1 as potential biomarker for intracellular oxidative status
Hydrogen peroxide and antioxidant delphinidin seem to regulate intracellular level of p27 through regulating HIF-1 level which is, in turn, governed by its upstream regulators comprising of PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling pathway. Expand
PGK 1 Induction by a Hydrogen Peroxide Treatment Is Suppressed by Antioxidants in Human Colon Carcinoma Cells
Few protein biomarkers for oxidative stress have been reported. In this study, we attempted to identify the proteins selectively overexpressed in human colon tumor cells by treating with hydrogenExpand
Dehydroglyasperin C isolated from licorice caused Nrf2-mediated induction of detoxifying enzymes.
DGC induced NQO1 both in wild-type murine hepatoma Hepa1c1c7 and ARNT-lacking BPRc1 cells, indicating that the compound is a monofunctional inducer and the induction of phase 2 detoxifying and antioxidant enzymes could be achieved through the interaction of Nrf2 with the ARE sequence in the promoter region of their genes.

Biotransformation of Free Isoflavones by Bacillus Species Isolated from Traditional Cheonggukjang
Our previous study showed that isoflavone profile of soybean undergoes a significant change during cheonggukjang preparation. In particular, the content of metabolite(s) with similar retention timeExpand
Dietary effects of black bean fermented by Monascus pilosus on body weight, serum lipid profiles and activities of hepatic antioxidative enzymes in mice fed high fat diets
The anti-obesity effects of fermented black bean were tested with mice fed a high fat diet for seven weeks. Body weight gain and feed efficiency ratio (FER) in the high fat diet control (HC) groupExpand
Antioxidant activity of Green Tea Fermented with Monascus pilosus
Green tea leaves were fermented for 15 and 30 days with Monascus pilosus which is known to produce functional statins (TMs), and the content of various biochemical constituents such as totalExpand
