Involvement of extracellular dilignols in lignification during tracheary element differentiation of isolated Zinnia mesophyll cells.
During differentiation of isolated Zinnia mesophyll cells into tracheary elements (TEs), lignification on TEs progresses by supply of monolignols not only from TEs themselves but also fromExpand
Involvement of S1P1 receptor pathway in angiogenic effects of a novel adenosine-like nucleic acid analog COA-Cl in cultured human vascular endothelial cells
COA‐Cl (2Cl‐C.OXT‐A) is a recently developed adenosine‐like nucleic acid analog that promotes angiogenesis via the mitogen‐activated protein (MAP) kinases ERK1/2. Endothelial S1P1 receptor playsExpand
Metabolic analysis of the cinnamate/monolignol pathway in Carthamus tinctorius seeds by a stable-isotope-dilution method.
The present study established a system for comprehensive metabolic analysis of the cinnamate/monolignol and lignan pathways by the use of a stable-isotope-dilution method. The system was successfullyExpand
Biosynthesis of yatein in Anthriscus sylvestris.
Little is known about the biosynthesis of yatein, in spite of its importance as a typical heartwood lignan and a key biosynthetic intermediate of the antitumor lignan podophyllotoxin. The presentExpand
At5g54160 gene encodes Arabidopsis thaliana 5-hydroxyconiferaldehyde O-methyltransferase
The function of an Arabidopsis thaliana gene, At5g54160 annotated as a caffeic acid O-methyltransferase CAOMT gene was characterized. The recombinant enzyme of this gene (AtOMT1) catalyzed theExpand
Novel 1,3-diene synthesis from alkyne and ethylene by ruthenium-catalyzed enyne metathesis
Abstract A novel 1,3-diene synthetic method from alkyne and ethylene was developed using ruthenium-catalyzed enyne metathesis. The reaction procedure is very simple: A CH 2 Cl 2 solution of alkyneExpand
Delayed administration of the nucleic acid analog 2Cl-C.OXT-A attenuates brain damage and enhances functional recovery after ischemic stroke
2Cl-C.OXT-A (COA-Cl) is a novel nucleic acid analog that enhances angiogenesis through extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1 or 2 (ERK1/2) activation. ERK1/2 is a well-known kinase that regulatesExpand
A novel nucleic acid analogue shows strong angiogenic activity.
A novel nucleic acid analogue (2Cl-C.OXT-A) significantly stimulated tube formation of human umbilical endothelial cells (HUVEC). Its maximum potency at 100muM was stronger than that of vascularExpand
