Arginine decarboxylase (ADC) is an important enzyme responsible for polyamine synthesis under stress conditions. In this study, the gene encoding ADC in Poncirus trifoliata (PtADC) was isolated and it existed as a single-copy member. Transcript levels of PtADC were up-regulated by low temperature and dehydration. Overexpression of PtADC in an Arabidopsis(More)
Studying the neural basis of human social interactions is a key topic in the field of social neuroscience. Brain imaging studies in this field usually focus on the neural correlates of the social interactions between two participants. However, as the participant number further increases, even by a small amount, great difficulties raise. One challenge is how(More)
CONTEXT The chemical weapon sulfur mustard (SM) is a blister agent, and currently, there is no effective antidote. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the decontamination efficacy of potassium ketoxime against SM and preliminarily elucidate its decontamination mechanism. MATERIALS AND METHODS Potassium ketoxime reacted with SM, and SM residues were tested at(More)
Garcinol, a polyisoprenylated benzophenone derivative, mainly isolated from Garcinia indica fruit rind, has been suggested to exhibit many biological benefits including antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-tumor activities. The aim of this study is to evaluate the protective effects of garcinol on dimethylnitrosamine (DMN)-induced liver fibrosis in(More)
Curcumin has been extensively studied for its therapeutic effects in a variety of disorders. Fermented soy consumption is associated with a low incidence rate of chronic diseases in many Asian countries. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential underlying mechanisms of the effect of a phyto-power dietary supplement on liver fibrosis.(More)
A facile metal-free synthesis of 2-aminothiophene derivatives by the reaction of 2-ynals with thioamides in alcohols has been developed. This transformation allows the assembly of 2-aminothienyl ether derivatives via a well-designed aldol condensation/regioselective intramolecular cyclization/conjugate addition cascade reaction and provides a(More)
An unprecedented KI/tert-butyl hydroperoxide promoted tandem Michael addition/oxidative annulation of allene-1,3-dicarboxylic esters and 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds has been developed. This procedure provides a new, facile, and transition-metal-free synthetic approach to afford polysubstituted furans in moderate to excellent yields (up to 93 %). This method(More)
