Resveratrol is a well-known natural antioxidant and cancer chemopreventive agent that has attracted much interest in the past decade. Resveratrol-directed compounds were synthesized, and their antioxidant effects against reactive oxygen species (ROS)-induced DNA damage, their prooxidant effects on DNA damage in the presence cupric ions, and their cytotoxic(More)
The prooxidant effect of resveratrol (3,5,4'-trihydroxy-trans-stibene) and its synthetic analogues (ArOH), that is, 3,4,4'-trihydroxy-trans-stibene (3,4,4'-THS), 3,4,5-trihydroxy-trans-stibene (3,4,5-THS), 3,4-dihydroxy-trans-stibene (3,4-DHS), 4,4'-dihydroxy-trans-stibene (4,4'-DHS), 2,4-dihydroxy-trans-stilbene (2,4-DHS), 3,5-dihydroxy-trans-stilbene(More)
The prooxidant effect of hydroxycinnamic acids (HCAs), i.e., caffeic acid (CaA), chlorogenic acid (ChA), sinapic acid (SA), ferulic acid (FA), 3-hydroxycinnamic acid (3-HCA) and 4-hydroxycinnamic acid (4-HCA) on supercoiled pBR322 plasmid DNA strand breakage and calf thymus DNA damage in the presence of Cu(II) ions has been studied. It was found that the(More)
BACKGROUND A bioactive compound from Paecilomyces tenuipes (BCPT) has an inhibitory effect on monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) and monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) in vitro and in vivo, which indicates BCPT may be a potential antidepressant. In this study we aimed to study the antidepressant effects of BCPT in the chronic unpredictable stress (CUS) model in rats and(More)
Phenylpropanoid amides of octopamine (OA) 1a-1e and dopamine (DA) 2a-2e were synthesised and the structure-activity relationships (SARs) for antioxidant and tyrosinase inhibition activities were analysed. Among synthesised compounds, 2c, which contains two catechol moieties, exhibited the most DPPH radical-scavenging activity (EC(50)=16.2 ± 2.4 μM), and 1d(More)

To reduce inhalable particle and SO(x) pollution from coal-based urban central heating (UCH), China has been vigorously developing natural gas-based UCH for years. The CO(2) emissions of UCH, having an average annual growth rate of 10.3%, accounted for 4.4% of China's total CO(2) emissions in 2009. This paper analyzes the feasibility of replacing UCH with(More)
Treatment of cells with estrogens and several pure ERalpha antagonists rapidly induces down-regulation of the alpha-type estrogen receptor (ERalpha) in the nucleus by mechanisms that are sensitive to the proteasome inhibitors, MG132 and clasto-lactacystin-beta-lactone. Hence, it is believed that these ER ligands induce down-regulation of ERalpha by(More)
bThis study explored whether the transplantation of modified marrow stromal cells (MSCs) has angiogenic effects in a left middle cerebral artery occlusion infarction/reperfusion (MCAO I/R) rat model and preliminarily examined the mechanism of angiogenesis following cerebral infarction. MSCs were isolated by using a direct adherent method and cultured.(More)
One genus and species are synonymized in the tribe Empoascini of the subfamily Typhlocybinae. Bhatasca Dworakowska, 1995is a junior synonym of Alebrasca Hayashi & Okada, 1994, Bhatasca rectangulata Qin & Zhang, 2011is a junior synonym of Alebrasca actinidiae Hayashi & Okada, 1994. Furthermore, Bhatasca expansa is (necessarily) transferred to the genus(More)
