Organotin compounds such as triphenyltin (TPT) and tributyltin (TBT) act as endocrine disruptors through the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) signaling pathway. We recently found that TPT is a particularly strong agonist of PPARγ. To elucidate the mechanism underlying organotin-dependent PPARγ activation, we here analyzed the(More)
A 12-residue MST isolated from a marine organism is a potent serine protease inhibitor that has a double cyclic structure composed of two ester linkages formed between the beta-hydroxyl and beta-carboxyl groups, Thr(3)-Asp(9) and Ser(8)-Asp(11). MST was synthesized by a regioselective esterification procedure employing two sets of orthogonally removable(More)
