A slow maturation of a cysteine protease with a granulin domain in the vacuoles of senescing Arabidopsis leaves.
Arabidopsis RD21 is a cysteine protease of the papain family. Unlike other members of the papain family, RD21 has a C-terminal extension sequence composed of two domains, a 2-kD proline-rich domainExpand

A receptor for green tea polyphenol EGCG
The major polyphenol in green tea, (−)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), has been shown to prevent carcinogenesis. We have identified a receptor that mediates the anticancer activity of EGCG.Expand

Actions of adenosine A2A receptor antagonist KW-6002 on drug-induced catalepsy and hypokinesia caused by reserpine or MPTP
Abstract Rationale: Current treatment of Parkinson’s disease (PD) is based on dopamine replacement therapy, but this leads to long term complications, including dyskinesia. Adenosine A2A receptorsExpand

N-acyl 6,7-dimethoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline: the first orexin-2 receptor selective non-peptidic antagonist.
The identification of potent and selective orexin-2 receptor (OX(2)R) antagonists is described based on the modification of N-acyl 6,7-dimethoxy-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline analogue 1, recentlyExpand

Lymphatic recovery, tissue distribution, and metabolic effects of conjugated linoleic acid in rats.
Abstract Apparent lymphatic recovery of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in rats was considerably lower than for linoleic acid, approximately 55% versus 80% for 24 hr, although the distribution inExpand

RES-701-1, a novel, potent, endothelin type B receptor-selective antagonist of microbial origin.
The unique cyclic peptide designated RES-701-1 blocked the binding of 125I-labeled endothelin (ET)-1 to bovine cerebellar membranes. ETB receptors are predominant in bovine cerebellum. However, inExpand
