BACKGROUND Rho kinases (ROCKs) mediate cell contraction, local adhesion, and cell motility, which are considered to be important in cell differentiation. We postulated that ROCKs are involved in controlling embryonic stem (ES) cell renewal and differentiation. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS CCE, a murine ES cell, was treated with Y-27632 for 48 to 96(More)
Intramuscular fat (IMF) content plays an important role in meat quality. Many genes involved in lipid and energy metabolism were identified as candidate genes for IMF deposition, since genetic polymorphisms within these genes were associated with IMF content. However, there is less information on the expression levels of these genes in the muscle tissue.(More)
The anticonvulsive properties of diazepam have been extensively studied, mainly focusing on the γ-amino butyrate (GABA) system. The aim of this investigation was to integrally analyze the metabolic events related to neuroprotection of diazepam on anisatin-induced convulsive seizures by a NMR-based metabolomic approach combined with histopathological(More)
Three novel cadinane dimers, involucratusins A-C (1-3), five unique nor-cadinane-dimers, involucratusins D-H (4-8), together with a known compound (9) were isolated from the rhizomes of Stahlianthus involucratus. Their challenging structures and absolute configurations were determined by spectroscopic data, CD experimentation, chemical conversions and(More)
Rocaglates are a series of structurally complex secondary metabolites with considerable cytotoxicity that have been isolated from plants of the Aglaia genus (Meliaceae). A new rocaglate (aglapervirisin A, 1) and its eight new biosynthetic precursors of rocaglate (aglapervirisins B-J, 2-9) together with five known compounds, were isolated from the leaves of(More)
In the title mononuclear complex, [Ni(NCS)(2)(C(12)H(8)N(4)S)(2)(H(2)O)(2)]·2H(2)O, the Ni(II) atom is located on an inversion center and is octa-hedrally coordinated by four N atoms from two 2,5-di-4-pyridyl-1,3,4-thia-diazole (bpt) ligands and two thio-cyanate mol-ecules forming the equatorial plane; the axial positions are occupied by two O atoms of(More)
In the title compound, [Cu(NCS)(2)(C(12)H(8)N(4)S)(2)(H(2)O)(2)]·2H(2)O, the Cu atom is located on an inversion center and displays an octa-hedral geometry. Two N atoms of two different 2,5-di-4-pyridyl-1,3,4-thia-diazole ligands and two N atoms from two separate thio-cyanate mol-ecules form the equatorial plane, while two coordinated water mol-ecules are(More)
