High concentrations of arsenic, which can be occasionally found in drinking water, have been recognized as a global health problem. Exposure to arsenic can disrupt spatial memory; however, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. In the present study, we tested whether exercise could interfere with the effect of arsenic exposure on the long-term memory(More)
A new sesquiterpenoid, 1, and three new diterpenoids, 3-5, along with five known compounds, 2 and 6-9, were isolated from rhizomes of Alpinia japonica. The structures of the new compounds were determined as (1R,4R,6S,7S,9S)-4α-hydroxy-1,9-peroxybisabola-2,10-diene (1), methyl (12E)-16-oxolabda-8(17),12-dien-15-oate (3),(More)
With fluorescent end-labeling method, a homogenous Dendrobium huoshanense polysaccharide (GXG) that was orally administrated to mice was found to be degraded into a stable fragment (dGXG) in the stomach, where dGXG was propelled into the small intestine and absorbed into the systemic circulation. The residual GXG in the stomach could pass through the(More)
Involucratustones A-C (1-3), three cadinane dimers containing multiple contiguous quaternary carbons, were isolated from the rhizomes of Stahlianthus involucratus. Their structures were determined by a combination of NMR spectroscopy, chemical conversion, and X-ray diffraction analysis. Compounds 1 and 2 are rearranged homodimers of cadinane sesquiterpene(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)
The effects of lotus root amylopectin (LRA) on the formation of whey protein isolate (WPI) gels were investigated at the concentration range from 0 to 1.0% (w/v) by determining the texteral, thermal and rheological properties. Results exhibited these properties of WPI gels could be significantly enhanced by the addition of LRA in a concentration-dependent(More)
In this work, we investigated the effect of Chinese chive polysaccharides (CCP) on renal function in mice with adenine-induced chronic renal failure (CRF). Results exhibited that adenine treatment caused serious renal pathological damages and elevation of serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen of mice. However, these changes could be significantly(More)
A novel norsesquiterpene (1), three new bisabolenes sesquiterpenes (2-4), along with 7 known compounds (5-11), were isolated from the rhizomes of Alpinia japonica. The structures of the new compounds were elucidated by analysis of spectroscopic data. The absolute configuration of C-1 in 3 was deduced via the circular dichroism data of the in situ formed(More)
A new polysaccharide (JSP-11) with a molecular weight of 1.25×106Da was extracted and purified from jellyfish. Monosaccharide analysis showed that JSP-11 was composed of mannose, galactose and glucuronic acid with a molar ratio of 2.18:1.00:1.94. According to the analysis of fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy, methylation analysis, and NMR(More)
