Rat neutrophils express the mRNA encoding for transient receptor potential (TRP) V1. However, capsaicin-stimulated [Ca2+]i elevation occurred only at high concentrations (> or = 100 microM). This response was substantially decreased in a Ca2+-free medium. Vanilloids displayed similar patterns of Ca2+ response with the rank order of potency as follows:(More)
The known flavonoids ginkgetin (1), taiwanhomoflavone A (2), taiwanhomoflavone B (3), and taiwanhomoflavone C (4) and eight known lignans: justicidin B (9), justicidin C (10), justicidin D (11), chinensinaphthol methyl ether (12), procumphthalide A (13), procumbenoside A (15), and ciliatosides A (16) and B (17) were isolated from Cephalotaxus wilsoniana and(More)
Three recently developed selective phospholipase D (PLD) inhibitors N-(2-(4-(2-oxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-benzo[d]imidazol-1-yl)piperidin-1-yl)ethyl)-2-naphthamide (VU0155056), (S)-N-(1-(4-(5-chloro-2-oxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-benzo[d]imidazol-1-yl)piperidin-1-yl)propan-2-yl)-2-naphthamide (VU0155069), and(More)
