Capsaicin (trans-8-methyl-N-vanillyl-6-nonenamide) is a major pungent and irritating ingredient of hot chilli peppers, which are frequently consumed as spices. This dietary phytochemical has been found to interact with microsomal xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes in rodents. Capsaicin and its saturated analog dihydrocapsaicin(More)
Inhibition of the early intracellular event that triggers neurodegenerative cascades and reversal of neuronal cell death are essential for effective treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). In this study, a novel therapeutic for AD, a transducible humanin with an extended caspase-3 cleavage sequence (tHN-C3), was developed and showed multiple mechanisms of(More)
A direct competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for determination of total T-2 toxin metabolites in urine was developed. The assay involves coating anti-3-acetyl-neosolaniol-hemisuccinate-bovine serum albumin conjugate (anti-3-Ac-NEOS-HS-BSA) antibody to the ELISA plate and using 3-Ac-NEOS-HS-peroxidase as the enzyme marker. Competitive ELISA(More)
A simple, rapid enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) was used to evaluate the performance of each step (extraction, filtration, solvent partition, and silica gel column chromatography) of a solvent-efficient thin-layer chromatographic (TLC) method which is undergoing interlaboratory collaborative study for the determination of aflatoxin B1 in corn, raw(More)
Pericentric inversion of chromosome 4 can give rise to 2 alternate recombinant (rec) chromosomesby duplication or deletion of 4p. The deletion of distal 4p manifests as Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (WHS). Here, we report the molecular cytogenetic findings and clinical manifestations observed in an infant with 46,XX,rec(4)dup(4q)inv(4)(p16q31.3)pat. The infant(More)
Free-choice consumption of alcohol by mice with differing phenotypic alcohol preferences caused uniformly large decreases in brain cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase activity toward an exogenous substrate (histone 2b) but the effect of alcohol on brain cyclic AMP binding activity was strain-specific. Furthermore, particulate kinase phosphorylating activity(More)
