Effect of SCG, 1,3-beta-D-glucan from Sparassis crispa on the hematopoietic response in cyclophosphamide induced leukopenic mice.
TLDR
The possibility that IL-6 might be a key cytokine for the enhanced hematopoietic response by SCG is suggested.
Antitumor 1,3-β-Glucan from Cultured Fruit Body of Sparassis crispa
Sparassis crispa is an edible mushroom recently cultivable in Japan. Polysaccharide fractions were prepared from the cultured S. crispa by repeated extraction with hot water (SCHWE), cold NaOH
IFN-gamma induction by SCG, 1,3-beta-D-glucan from Sparassis crispa, in DBA/2 mice in vitro.
TLDR
It was suggested that soluble factors and cell-cell contact mediate synergistic effects on SCG-induced IFN-gamma production and that interleukin-12 p70 (IL-12p70) was induced by SCG in DBA/2 mice.
IFN-γ Induction by SCG, 1,3-β-D-Glucan from Sparassis crispa, in DBA/2 Mice In Vitro
TLDR
Interferon-γ (IFN-γ) induction by SCG from splenocytes in DBA/2 mice in vitro was examined and it was suggested that soluble factors and cell-cell contact med...
Antitumor 1,3-beta-glucan from cultured fruit body of Sparassis crispa.
TLDR
Polysaccharide fractions prepared from the cultured S. crispa showed antitumor activity to the solid form of Sarcoma 180 in ICR mice with strong vascular dilation and hemorrhage reaction and enhanced hematopoietic response to cyclophosphamide induced leukopenic mice following intraperitoneal or peroral administration.
A comparative study on the measurement of urinary kallikrein in the rat.
TLDR
It is indicated that the peptidase and vasodilator activities should be employed for the estimation of urinary kallikrein excretion in the urine from rats under furosemide treatment.
Synthesis and biological activities of neoechinulin A derivatives: new aspects of structure-activity relationships for neoechinulin A.
TLDR
The results suggest that the antioxidant activity or electrophilic nature of the C-8 carbon, both of which are afforded by theC-8/C-9 double bond, may play a role in the cytoprotective properties of this alkaloid.
Enhanced Cytokine Synthesis of Leukocytes by a β‐Glucan Preparation, SCG, Extracted from a Medicinal Mushroom, Sparassis crispa
TLDR
SCG was observed to have the capacity to activate human leukocytes and related immune system in an in vitro human system.
