In non-neuronal cells and neuronal progenitors, many neuron-specific genes are repressed by a neural restrictive silencer factor (NRSF)/repressor element 1 silencing transcription factor (REST), which is an essential transcriptional repressor recruiting the Sin3-HDAC complex. Sin3 contains four paired amphipathic helix (PAH) domains, PAH1, PAH2, PAH3 and(More)
Skeletal muscle is an important organ for controlling the development of type 2 diabetes. We discovered Panax notoginseng roots as a candidate to improve hyperglycemia through in vitro muscle cells screening test. Saponins are considered as the active ingredients of ginseng. However, in the body, saponins are converted to dammarane-type triterpenes, which(More)
Resistance exercise activates muscle protein synthesis via the mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) pathway and subsequent muscle hypertrophy. Upstream components of the mTORC1 pathway are widely known to be involved in Akt and extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) signaling. Previous studies have shown that ginseng stimulated Akt(More)
A sample-treating system for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)-based interaction screening between drug candidates (small molecules) and a protein of interest was developed by applying high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) technology. The system prepares a test solution by mixing a (15)N-labeled protein solution and a solution of each candidate(More)
