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 repetitive pressure-jump apparatus has been devised and used for the measurement of a small relaxation effect in solution. Although the pressure rise time of the apparatus is inferior to the usual method, signal averaging has enhanced signal-to-noise ratio of the relaxation spectrum.
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)
