Many researchers have stated that eugenol might inhibit lipid peroxidation at the stage of initiation, propagation, or both, and many attempts have been made to elucidate the mechanism of its antioxidant activity. Nevertheless, details of its mechanism are still obscure. This study was carried out to investigate the trapping effect of eugenol on hydroxyl(More)
A new indole-diterpene, JBIR-03 (1), was isolated from the fungus Dichotomomyces cejpii var. cejpii NBRC 103559 and its structure was determined based on the spectroscopic data. 1 exhibited anti-MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) activity and antifungal activity against apple Valsa canker-causing fungus, Valsa ceratosperma, while it(More)
3-Nitropropionic acid (3-NPA) is a suicide inactivator of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH), commonly used as a pharmacological model of Huntington's disease in rodents. Several studies have shown that a single administration of 3-NPA given systemically provides subsequent ischemic tolerance. The present study has tested the hypothesis that 3-NPA is capable of(More)
Two N,O-diacetylaporphine alkaloids, N,O-diacetylnoroliveroline (1) and N,O-diacetyl-(-)-nornuciferidine (2), have been isolated and characterized from the rhizomes of Lysichiton camtschatcense. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic data analysis. DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) radicals were scavenged by compounds 1 and 2, but with weak(More)
When an aqueous solution of 5,5-dimethyl-1-pyrroline N-oxide (DMPO) was heated at 70 degrees C for 30 min, formation of DMPO-OH was observed by ESR. This DMPO-OH radical formation was suppressed under an argon atmosphere. When water was replaced with ultra-pure water for ICP-MS experiments, DMPO-OH radical formation was also diminished. Under an argon(More)
We studied the antioxidant and antibacterial activities of monomeric and dimeric phenol compounds. Dimeric compounds had higher antioxidant activities than monomeric compounds. Electron spin resonance spin-trapping experiments showed that phenol compounds with an allyl substituent on their aromatic rings directly scavenged superoxide, and that only eugenol(More)
This study was carried out to investigate the antioxidant activity of propofol (2,6-diisopropylphenol) and its related compounds, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), 2,6-dimethylphenol, 2,6-di-t-butylphenol, and their dimeric compounds. The degree of antioxidant activity was evaluated based on the degree of peroxidation induced with Fe-ascorbic acid in egg(More)
