Isothiocyanates and substituted pyrazoles were combined to form a series of novel isothiocyanates with highly effective herbicidal activity. The target compounds were analyzed by elemental analysis, 1H-NMR, EI-MS and IR spectroscopy. The synthesized compounds, particularly compounds 3-1 and 3-7, exhibited good herbicidal activities against four weeds. The(More)
AMPK was shown to negatively regulate FcεRI activation, and FcεR-mediated Fyn activation can counteract the LKB1/AMPK axis in mast cells. However, the relationship between the major Src family kinase Lyn and AMPK remains poorly defined. Here, we investigate the molecular mechanism for AMPK inhibition by FcεRI-Lyn signaling in rat RBL-2H3 cells. We found(More)
Phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), an effective anticancer and chemopreventive agent, has been reported to inhibit cancer cell growth through cell-cycle arrest and induction of apoptotic events in various human cancer cells models. However, whether PEITC inhibits human oral squamous cell carcinoma HSC-3 cell growth and its underlying mechanisms is still not(More)
