AIM Receptor-interacting protein 3 (RIP3) is involved in tumor necrosis factor receptor signaling, and results in NF-κB-mediated prosurvival signaling and programmed cell death. The aim of this study was to determine whether overexpression of the RIP3 gene could sensitize human breast cancer cells to parthenolide in vitro. METHODS The expression of RIP3(More)
The roots of Euphorbia kansui are considered an important traditional folk medicine. In this study the ethanol extracts of E. kansui were investigated. A new tetracyclic triterpenoid, euphane-3b,20-dihydroxy-24-ene, in addition to five known triterpenoids with euphane skeletons were isolated. Their structures were elucidated on the basis of physical and(More)
A total synthesis of the caribenol A (1), a novel natural product with an intriguing tetracyclic framework, has been achieved. The synthesis features an intramolecular Diels-Alder (IMDA) reaction for the facile construction of the tricyclic [5-7-6] skeleton of caribenol A (1) and a biomimetic oxidation reaction for the formation of the(More)
