MassBank: a public repository for sharing mass spectral data for life sciences.
MassBank is the first public repository of mass spectra of small chemical compounds for life sciences (<3000 Da). The database contains 605 electron-ionization mass spectrometry (EI-MS), 137 fastExpand
Carotenoids in three species of Corbicula Clams, Corbicula japonica, Corbicula sandai, and Corbicula sp. (Chinese Freshwater Corbicula Clam).
Carotenoids were investigated in three species of corbicula clams, Corbicula japonica, Corbicula sandai, and Corbicula sp. (Chinese freshwater corbicula clam). Forty-three carotenoids were isolated.Expand
Carotenoids and their fatty acid esters of spiny lobster Panulirus japonicus.
Carotenoids and their fatty acid esters in the carapace of the spiny lobster Panulirus japonicus were investigated. Fatty acid esters of astaxanthin, adonixanthin, and pectenolone were characterizedExpand
Structures of five new carotenoids from the oyster Crassostrea gigas.
Five new minor carotenoids, 1-5, were isolated from the oyster Crassostrea gigas. The structure of 1 was determined to beExpand
Rapid Identification of Carotenoids in a Combination of Liquid Chromatography / UV-Visible Absorption Spectrometry by Photodiode-Array Detector and Atomospheric Pressure Chemical Ionization Mass
The combination method of high performance liquid chromatography / UV-Visible (Vis) absorption spectrometry by photodiode-array detector and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometryExpand
Fungal metabolites. XIX. Structural elucidation of channel-forming peptides, trichorovins-I-XIV, from the fungus Trichoderma viride.
Trichorovins (TV)-I-XIV are new antibiotic peptides obtained from conidia of the fungus Trichoderma viride. The peptide mixture of TVs was repeatedly fractionated by preparative HPLC until individualExpand
Potential immunosuppressive and antiinflammatory activities of Malaysian medicinal plants characterized by reduced cell surface expression of cell adhesion molecules
In the search for agents effective against immune‐mediated disorders and inflammation, we have screened Malaysian medicinal plants for the ability to inhibit the expression of intercellular adhesionExpand
Isolation of a series of apocarotenoids from the fruits of the red paprika Capsicum annuum L.
Eleven apocarotenoids (1-11) including five new compounds, 4, 6, 9, 10 and 11, were isolated from the fruits of the red paprika Capsicum annuum L. The structures of new apocarotenoids were determinedExpand
Carotenoids in a Corynebacterineae, Gordonia terrae AIST-1: Carotenoid Glucosyl Mycoloyl Esters
We isolated a strain of Corynebacterineae from surface seawater from the Inland Sea of Japan. This strain, AIST-1, was determined to be a strain of Gordonia terrae based on its 16S rRNA geneExpand
Structure of minor carotenoids from the crown-of-thorns starfish, Acanthaster planci.
Four new carotenoids, named 4-ketodeepoxyneoxanthin (1), 4-keto-4'-hydroxydiatoxanthin (2), 3'-epigobiusxanthin (3), and 7,8-dihydrodiadinoxanthin (4), were isolated from the crown-of-thornsExpand
