Mulberry, the fruit of Morus alba L., is known as an edible fruit and commonly used in Chinese medicines as a warming agent and as a sedative, tonic, laxative, odontalgic, expectorant, anthelmintic, and emetic. Systemic investigation of the chemical constituents of M. alba fruits led to the identification of a novel oxolane derivative,(More)
This study was performed to investigate the renoprotective effect and mechanism of Momordicae Semen, gac seeds, against the cisplatin-induced damage in LLC-PK1 kidney cells. In order to identify the active components, three major saponins were isolated from extract of the gac seed, gypsogenin(More)
The fruit of the white mulberry tree (Morus alba L.) is a multiple fruit with a sweet flavor commonly consumed around the world. Chemical investigation of the fruits led to the isolation of two indole acetic acid derivatives (1 -2) including a new compound, which turned out to be an isolation artifact,(More)
BACKGROUND Compound FK506 is an immunosuppressant agent that is frequently used to prevent rejection of solid organs upon transplant. However, nephrotoxicity due to apoptosis and inflammatory response mediated by FK506 limit its usefulness. In this study, the protective effect of Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) against FK506-induced damage in LLC-PK1 pig kidney(More)
Momordica cochinchinensis Spreng (family Cucurbitaceae), also known as gac, or red melon, is an edible Southeast Asian fruit valued for its nutritional and medicinal properties. Specifically, Momordicae Semen, the seeds of the gac fruit, is used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat boils, rheumatic pain, muscle spasm, hemorrhoids, and hemangiomas. In(More)
A new rearranged eudesmane sesquiterpene, named eudeglaucone (1), and five known sesquiterpenes including (+)-faurinone (2) and four eudesmane-type sesquiterpenes (3-6), were isolated from the twigs of Lindera glauca (Sieb. et Zucc.) Blume. The structure of 1 was elucidated by a combination of extensive spectroscopic analyses, including extensive 2D NMR(More)
Lindera glauca (Sieb. et Zucc.) Blume (Lauraceae) has been used to treat rheumatic arthritis, stroke, and cardiac pain. Phytochemical investigation of twigs of L. glauca (Sieb. et Zucc.) Blume resulted in the isolation and identification of a new cerebroside, glaucerebroside (1). The structure of 1 was elucidated by a combination of extensive spectroscopic(More)
Pinecones from Pinus koraiensisSiebold & Zucc. (Pinaceae), which have historically been treated as an undesired waste by-product in the processing of seeds, have recently been shown to contain ingredients with potent biological activities, such as polyphenols exhibiting antitumor activity. With this study, we seek to broaden our understanding of antitumor(More)
As part of our ongoing search for bioactive constituents of natural Korean medicinal resources, we found in a preliminary study that the methanol (MeOH) extract from the trunks of Tilia amurensis RUPR. showed an inhibitory effect on nitric oxide (NO) production in an activated murine microglial cell line. A bioassay-guided fractionation and chemical(More)
