Mulberroside A, a glycosylated stilbene, was isolated and identified from the ethanol extract of the roots of Morus alba. Oxyresveratrol, the aglycone of mulberroside A, was produced by enzymatic hydrolysis of mulberroside A using the commercial enzyme Pectinex®. Mulberroside A and oxyresveratrol showed inhibitory activity against mushroom tyrosinase with(More)
Mulberroside A was isolated from the ethanol extract of Morus alba roots. The enzymatic hydrolysis of mulberroside A with Pectinex produced oxyresveratrol and oxyresveratrol-3-O-glucoside. We tested oxyresveratrol, oxyresveratrol-3-O-glucoside, and mulberroside A to determine whether they could inhibit ultraviolet B (UVB) irradiation-induced melanogenesis(More)
Mulberroside A (MUL) was purified from an ethanol extract of Morus alba root, and oxyresveratrol (OXY) was produced by enzymatic conversion of MUL. Normal rats, Triton WR-1339-induced hyperlipidemic rats, and high-cholesterol diet (HCD)-induced hyperlipidemic rats were orally treated with MUL or OXY (1-5mg/kg/day). MUL and OXY were administered 1h prior to(More)
Biotransformation is often used to improve chemical activity. We evaluated the antimicrobial activity of rhapontigenin, converted from rhapontin after treatment with Pectinex. Rhapontigenin showed 4-16 times higher antimicrobial activity than rhapontin. Activity was higher against Gram positive strains than Gram negative strains. Minimum inhibitory(More)
The inhibitory effects of oxyresveratrol, the aglycone of mulberroside A, on mushroom and cellular tyrosinase activities and melanin synthesis were evaluated. Mulberroside A and oxyresveratrol showed inhibitory activity against mushroom tyrosinase, with oxyresveratrol demonstrating a greater inhibitory effect than that of mulberroside A. Oxyresveratrol and(More)
This paper presents an quantitative analysis on the cross modulation between transmitter CDMA leakage signal and single tone jammer signal, and some design guide lines for overcoming it in receiver design. The analysis shows that duplexer isolation and LNA IIP3 are responsible for the cross modulation. It also shows that LNA IIP3 required for meeting(More)
Rhapontin was purified from a methanol extract from the roots of Rheum undulatum, and rhapontigenin was produced by an enzymatic transformation of rhapontin. Rats were fed a high-cholesterol diet to induce hyperlipidemia, followed by oral treatment with rhapontin or rhapontigenin (1-5 mg/kg/day). Rhapontin and rhapontigenin treatment resulted in a(More)
In this paper the second version of the omnidirectional mobile robot with steerable omnidirectional wheels (OMR-SOW) is presented. This robot can operate in either the omnidirectional or the differential drive mode depending on the drive conditions. In the omnidirectional mode, it has 3 DOFs in motion and 1 DOF in steering which can function as a(More)
Rhapontigenin, an aglycone of rhapontin, was produced by biotransformation and we investigated its antifungal activity against Candida albicans, one of the most important opportunistic fungal pathogens. Rhapontigenin is found to have, in vitro, inhibitory activity with a minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) value against all test isolates of 128-256(More)
Strengthening intestinal tight junctions (TJ) provides an effective barrier from the external environment and is important for recovery from inflammatory bowel disease. Oxyresveratrol (OXY), an isomer of hydroxylated resveratrol, is isolated from many plants. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of OXY on intestinal TJ and to elucidate the(More)
