An orally active antiallergic agent, M50367, skews the Th1/Th2 balance toward Th1 dominance by suppressing naive Th cell differentiation into Th2 cells in vitro. Administration results in the suppression of IgE synthesis and peritoneal eosinophilia in vivo. In this report, we determined that M50354 (an active metabolite of M50367) was a ligand for the aryl(More)
Nrf2 is a transcription factor that regulates the antioxidant and detoxification enzyme genes and provides defense against oxidative and electrophilic stresses in various tissues. In brain, while neuroprotective functions of Nrf2 have been well documented, Nrf2 contribution to the brain function remains to be elucidated. To address this issue, we(More)
OBJECTIVE Diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1 (DGAT1) catalyzes the final committed step in triglyceride biosynthesis. DGAT1 null mice are known to be resistant to diet-induced obesity, and more insulin sensitive relative to the wild-type; however, the mice exhibit abnormalities in the skin. This work determined whether the intestine-targeted DGAT1 inhibitor(More)
