The effect of rexflavone (Sophorae Fructus Extract) on menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women: A randomized double-blind placebo controlled clinical trial
It was shown that the consumption of Rexflavone possessed beneficial effects on the postmenopausal symptoms in post menopausal women and has no adverse effect to be safe for long term consumption.
Prenylated and benzylated flavonoids from the fruits of Cudrania tricuspidata.
Three new prenylated isoflavones and a benzylated dihydroflavonol inhibited LPS-induced nitric oxide production and eight known flavonoids were isolated from the fruits of Cudrania tricuspidata.
Effect of a Growth Protein-Colostrum Fraction on Bone Development in Juvenile Rats
It is hypothesize that a colostrum-based dietary supplement enhances bone growth and development in humans by increasing serum osteocalcin and bone mineral density.
Xanthigen attenuates high-fat diet-induced obesity through down-regulation of PPARγ and activation of the AMPK pathway
Xanthigen, a mixture of brown seaweed and pomegranate seed extracts, has weight loss properties and lipid-lowering effects in mice and humans. This study elucidated the Xanthigen mechanism of an
A new abietane diterpenoid from Isodon inflexus
A new ent-abietane diterpenoid, 3α,6β-dihydroxy-7,17-dioxo-ent-abieta-15(16)-ene (1), and three known ent-kaurane diterpenids, kamebacetal A (2), kamebakaurin (3), and excisanin A (4), and a known
Effects of Colostrum Basic Protein from Colostrum Whey Protein: Increases in Osteoblast Proliferation and Bone Metabolism
It is suggested that CBP may increase bone mass and density and be useful for the prevention of bone-related diseases.
Genetic Structure of thebphGGene Encoding 2-Hydroxymuconic Semialdehyde Dehydrogenase ofAchromobacter xylosoxidansKF701
AbphGgene encoding HMS dehydrogenase of A. xylosoxidansKF701 exhibited the highest 94% homology with that of corresponding enzyme encoded inxylGfromP, and putative cofactor NAD+-binding regions and catalytic residues were identified.
Characterization of thepcbE gene encoding 2-hydroxypenta-2,4-dienoate hydratase inPseudomonas sp. DJ-12
A 3.8-kb nucleotide sequence located downstream of thepcbC gene was analyzed to have three open reading frames (ORFs) that are designated asorf1, pcbE andorf2 genes, which is unique organization characterized so far in biphenyl- and PCB-degrading bacteria.
Comparison of enzymatic and immunochemical properties of 2,3‐dihydroxybiphenyl‐1,2‐dioxygenases from four Pseudomonas strains
Enzymatic and immunochemical properties of the cloned 2,3-dihydroxybiphenyl-1,2-dioxygenase were characterized, and compared with those of P. DJ-12 and P. putida OU83 in electrophoretic mobilities on native PAGE and SDS-PAGE.
Cloning and overexpression of methylcatechol 2,3-dioxygenase gene from toluene-degradingPseudomonas putida mt-2 (pWWO)
Analysis of enzyme activity and SDS-PAGE showed that the cloned methylcatechol 2,3-dioxygenase gene in E. coli was about 100 fold overexpressed compared with the parental gene inP.
