Four new sesquiterpenes from Petasites formosanus.
Four new eremophilane-type sesquiterpenes, petasones A (1) and B (2), S-petasitin (3), and petasinol (4), were isolated from the aerial parts of Petasites formosanus. Their structures were elucidatedExpand

Growth regulation by all-trans-retinoic acid and retinoic acid receptor messenger ribonucleic acids expression in gastric cancer cells.
Retinoic acid has been recognised as a pivotal compound in cell differentiation, proliferation and malignant transformation. We investigated the effects of all-trans-retinoic acid on cell growth andExpand

A 346-Base Pair Region of the Mouse γ-Glutamyl Transpeptidase Type II Promoter Contains Sufficient Cis-acting Elements for Kidney-restricted Expression in Transgenic Mice*
The mouse γ-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT) gene encodes seven distinct mRNAs that are transcribed from seven separate promoters. Type II mRNA is the most abundant in kidney. We have developed a cellExpand

[Studies on the sapogenins and prosapogenins in Ardisia pusilla A. DC].
Two new saponins were isolated from Ardisia pusilla and proved to have marked immunological function and antitumor activity. Acidic hydrolysis of saponin I gave five sapogenins and two prosapogenins.Expand
