UNLABELLED The specific mechanisms of nonalcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) pathogenesis remain unknown. In the present study we investigated the differences between NAFL and NASH in terms of liver lipid metabolites and serum lipoprotein. In all, 104 Japanese subjects (50 men and 54 postmenopausal women) with histologically(More)
The complete amino acid sequence of Japanese chestnut (Castanea crenata Sieb. et Zucc.) agglutinin (CCA) was determined. Analysis by SIMS of the acidic peptide obtained by pepsin digestion revealed that the N-terminal amino acid sequence should be Acetyl-Met-Glu-Glu. Prior to sequence analysis, redetermination of cysteine residues indicated the presence of(More)
A new quassinoid, designated 2'-(R)-O-acetylglaucarubinone (1), and seven known quassinoids (2-8) were isolated, using bioactivity-guided separation, from the bark of Odyendyea gabonensis (Pierre) Engler [syn. Quassia gabonensis Pierre]. The structure of 1 was determined by spectroscopic analysis and by semisynthesis from glaucarubolone. Complete (1)H and(More)
This report describes the anti-platelet aggregation activity of 48 pyrazines. Among alkyl- and arylpyrazines tested, 2,3-diphenylpyrazines showed the strongest anti-platelet aggregation activity. Then, various substituents were introduced into the phenyl groups, and the 2,3-bis(p-methoxyphenyl)pyrazine derivatives were consequently found to possess(More)
Nucleoside phosphoramidites are the most widely used building blocks in contemporary solid-phase synthesis of oligonucleotides. The accurate molecular weight measurements of such molecules, which are acid-labile compounds, may be easily determined by mass spectrometry using a matrix system, triethanolamine/NaCl, on a liquid secondary ion mass spectrometer(More)
Nucleoside phosphoramidites (PAs) are the most widely used building blocks in the contemporary solid-phase synthesis of oligonucleotides. Accurate molecular weight measurements of such acid-labile compounds may be easily determined in a matrix system comprising triethanolamine (TEOA)-NaCl by liquid secondary ionization mass spectrometry (LSIMS) or fast atom(More)
In the present study, we assessed the influence of bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol A 3,4-quinone (BPAQ) on the conversion of xanthine dehydrogenase (XD) into xanthine oxidase (XO) in the rat liver in vitro. BPA up to 100 micromol/L did not affect the XO and XD activities in the partially purified cytosolic fraction from rat liver, whereas BPAQ (2-10(More)
