Lipid components, fatty acid distributions of triacylglycerols and phospholipids in rice brans.
Endogenous tocochromanols in extracted lipids from rice brans of the five cultivars were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography, and were investigated in relation to the fatty acid (FA)Expand

Structural analysis of isosteviol and related compounds as DNA polymerase and DNA topoisomerase inhibitors.
Isosteviol (ent-16-ketobeyeran-19-oic acid) is a hydrolysis product of stevioside, which is a natural sweetener produced in the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni) Bertoni. In this report, weExpand

Inhibitory effects of glycolipids fraction from spinach on mammalian DNA polymerase activity and human cancer cell proliferation.
We succeeded in purifying the fraction containing the major glycolipids in monogalactosyl diacylglycerol, digalactosyl diacylglycerol and sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol (SQDG) from dried vegetables.Expand

Structural analysis of catechin derivatives as mammalian DNA polymerase inhibitors.
The inhibitory activities against DNA polymerases (pols) of catechin derivatives (i.e., flavan-3-ols) such as (+)-catechin, (-)-epicatechin, (-)-gallocatechin, (-)-epigallocatechin, (+)-catechinExpand

Inhibitory effects of myricetin on mammalian DNA polymerase, topoisomerase and human cancer cell proliferation.
In this study, the inhibitory activities against mammalian DNA polymerases (pols) of 16 major bioflavonoids were investigated. Myricetin (3,3',4',5,5',7-hexahydroxyflavone) was the most potentExpand
