Molecular characterisation and biological activity of a novel CXC chemokine gene in rock bream (Oplegnathus fasciatus).
Constituents from the fruiting bodies ofGanoderma applanatum and their aldose reductase inhibitory activity
Eight compounds were isolated from the fruiting bodies of Ganoderma applanatum and ergosterol peroxide was found to exhibit potent RLAR inhibition, its IC50 value being 15.4 μg/mL.
Protective effects of the compounds isolated from the seed of Psoralea corylifolia on oxidative stress-induced retinal damage.
Metabolic engineering of Nicotiana benthamiana for the increased production of taxadiene
It is reported that the production of taxadiene in N. benthamiana was possible by the ectopic expression of the TS gene, and higher accumulation oftaxadiene could be achieved by elicitor treatment or metabolic pathway shunting of the terpenoid pathway.
Antiviral activities of compounds from aerial parts of Salvia plebeia R. Br.
Cinnamomulactone, a new butyrolactone from the twigs of Cinnamomum cassia and its inhibitory activity of matrix metalloproteinases
Cinnamomulactone (1), a new butyrolactone was isolated from the twigs of C. cassia together with nine known compounds, which showed inhibitory activity against matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) gene expression and compound 1 has been revealed to suppress the gene expression of MMP-3 and interleukin (IL)-1β in tumor necrosis factor stimulated rheumatoid arthritis synovial fibroblasts.
Hericirine, a novel anti-inflammatory alkaloid from Hericium erinaceum
Bioactive secondary metabolites produced by an endophytic fungus Gaeumannomyces sp. JS0464 from a maritime halophyte Phragmites communis
Endophytes from the halophytes could be potential resources for bioactive natural products and showed significant nitric oxide reduction activity in lipopolysaccharide-stimulated microglia BV-2 cells, seven of which did not impair cell viability.
Chemical Constituents of Apios americana Tubers and Their Inhibitory Activities on Nitric Oxide Production in Lipopolysaccharide-Stimulated RAW 264.7 Macrophages.
This is the first study to determine the absolute configuration of a 3-hydroxycoumaronochromone derivative, and the potential anti-inflammatory activity of the 20 isolates obtained was evaluated by measuring their inhibitory effects on nitric oxide production in lipopolysaccharide-stimulated RAW 264.7 macrophages.
Production of taxadiene from cultured ginseng roots transformed with taxadiene synthase gene.
This is the first report of the production ofTaxadiene by engineering ginseng roots with a taxadiene synthase gene, and the de novo formation of taxadienes was identified by mass spectroscopy profiling.
