Imperatorin is a type of coumarin compound with antibacterial and antiviral activities. In the present study, we examined the anti-inflammatory effects of imperatorin in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophages by investigating its impact on the production and expression of cytokines and the major signal-transduction pathways. We found that(More)
Gossypol, a yellowish polyphenolic compound originally from cotton plant, has been known to exert a potential for anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and other important therapeutic activities. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the protection of gossypol on inflammation in Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulated RAW 264.7 cells and LPS induced in(More)
To obtain novel antigen genes for use as an anti-tumor vaccine, a Trichinella spiralis cDNA expression library was constructed from muscle larvae RNA and screened with sera from Balb/C mice injected with Sp2/0 myeloma cells. One positive clone was obtained after three rounds of immunoscreening of the cDNA expression library and was subsequently excised in(More)
BACKGROUND The melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) gene plays an important role in the control of coat colour in mammals. Genetic variation of the MC1R gene and the relationship between genotype and coat colour are not well understood. Studies in the fox may improve our understanding of gene influence on coat colour in dogs and cats. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES To(More)
