N(2)-[alpha-O-benzyl-N-(acetylmuramyl)-L-alanyl-D-isoglutaminyl]-N(6)-trans-(m-nitrocinnamoyl)-L-lysine (muramyl dipeptide C, or MDP-C) has been synthesized as a novel, nonspecific immunomodulator. The present study shows that MDP-C induces strong cytolytic activity by macrophages on P388 leukemia cells and cytotoxic activity by cytotoxic T lymphocytes(More)
AIM To investigate the inhibitory effect of imrecoxib, a synthetic compound of completely new structure, on cyclooxygenase 1 (COX-1) and 2 (COX-2) and its anti-inflammatory effect in vivo. METHODS The inhibitory effects of imrecoxib on cyclooxygenase 1 and 2 were studied using whole cell assay with murine peritoneal macrophages induced by calcimycin and(More)
AIM To explore the anti-inflammatory effects of amurensin H on asthma-like reaction induced by allergen in sensitized mice. METHODS BALB/c mice were sensitized by ovalbumin (OVA, ip) on d 0 and d 14 and challenged with 1% OVA on d 18 to 22. Mice developed airway eosinophilia, mucus hypersecretion, and elevation in cytokine levels. Mice were administered(More)
The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of Vam3 which is one of the dihydroxystilbene compounds on expressions of ICAM-1 in the lungs of OVA-induced asthmatic mice and the mechanisms of anti-airway inflammation. Balb/c mice were challenged with OVA inhalation. Lung tissues were stained with Mayer's hematoxylin and eosin for(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of Vam3 (a resveratrol dimer extracted from Vitis amurensis Rupr) on cigarette smoke (CS)-induced cell apoptosis in lungs in vitro and in vivo and the underlying mechanisms of action. METHODS Human bronchial epithelial cell line BEAS-2B was exposed to cigarette smoke condensate (CSC, 300 mg/L), and cell apoptosis was(More)
AIM To investigate the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) in mouse ears induced with croton oil and the inhibitory effect of dexamethasone, indomethacin and resveratrol on MMP-9 expression, and further explore the relationship between anti-inflammation and MMP-9 inhibition of these three medicines. METHODS Immuno-histochemistry was used to(More)
Nine 14,15-secopregnane-type C21-steriosides, stauntosides U, V, V1-V3, W and C1-C3, as well as two known C21-steriosides, were isolated from the roots of Cynanchum stauntonii. Stauntosides U, V and V1-V3 share the same basic structural features of 8α:14α,14:16,15:20,18:20-tetraepoxy-14,15-secopregn-6-ene-3β,5α,9α-triol, with the numbering system following(More)
In this letter, (R)-muscone and (S)-muscone were prepared by optical resolution of dl-muscone using N,N'-dibenzyl-l-tartaramide or N,N'-dibenzyl-d-tartaramide, according to the method reported by Kunihiko Takabe. But we separated the diastereomers using EtOH instead of MeOH in the recrystallization step to get the goal product with higher optical purity and(More)
This study is to investigate the effect of Vam3, a dimeric derivative of resveratrol, on SNP-induced apoptosis and its potential mechanism in rat articular chondrocytes. Isolated rat articular chondrocytes were treated with sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a NO donor, to induce apoptosis. Apoptosis percentage was evaluated by Annexin V-PI and nucleus fracture(More)
Inflammation derived from macrophages activation leads to various diseases. Synthetic modifications of resveratrol have been shown to have better anti-inflammatory activities. In this study, croton oil-induced mouse ear edema and lipopolysaccharides (LPS)-stimulated RAW264.7 macrophages were used to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effects of WL-09-5, a(More)
