Naturally Occurring Small‐Molecule Inhibitors of Hedgehog/GLI‐Mediated Transcription
The aberrant hedgehog (Hh)/GLI signaling pathway causes the formation and progression of a variety of tumors. To search for Hh/GLI inhibitors, we screened for naturally occurring inhibitors of theExpand
Multiple Analyses of G-Protein Coupled Receptor (GPCR) Expression in the Development of Gefitinib-Resistance in Transforming Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer
There is increasing evidence that functional crosstalk between GPCRs and EGFR contributes to the progression of colon, lung, breast, ovarian, prostate and head and neck tumors. In this study, weExpand
Curcumin-like diarylpentanoid analogues as melanogenesis inhibitors
Anti-melanogenesis screening of 47 synthesized curcumin-like diarylpentanoid analogues was performed to show that some had a potent inhibitory effect on the melanogenesis in B16 melanoma cells. TheirExpand
Antioxidant phenylpropanoid glycosides from the leaves of Wasabia japonica.
From the MeOH extract of the leaves of W. japonica, seven phenylpropanoid gentiobiosides (1-7) were isolated along with eight known phenylpropanoids (8-15). Structures of 1-7 were determined based onExpand
Vasorelaxant activity of indole alkaloids from Tabernaemontana dichotoma
The aim of this study was to search for bioactive natural products from medicinal plants targeting vasorelaxant activity and we found the methanol extract from bark of Tabernaemontana dichotomaExpand
Absorption and Metabolism of Luteolin and Its Glycosides from the Extract of Chrysanthemum morifolium Flowers in Rats and Caco-2 Cells.
To elucidate the bioavailability of luteolin and its glycosides in Chrysanthemum morifolium flowers, the absorption and metabolism of luteolin from them was investigated in rats and Caco-2 cellsExpand
Solophenols B-D and solomonin: new prenylated polyphenols isolated from propolis collected from the Solomon Islands and their antibacterial activity.
Three new prenylated flavonoids, namely, solophenols B (1), C (2), and D (3), as well as a new prenylated stilbene, solomonin (4), were isolated from propolis collected from the Solomon Islands. InExpand
Synthesis and structure-activity relationships of cassiarin A as potential antimalarials with vasorelaxant activity.
Cassiarin A 1, a tricyclic alkaloid, isolated from the leaves of Cassia siamea (Leguminosae), shows powerful antimalarial activity against Plasmodium falciparum in vitro as well as P. berghei inExpand
Chrotacumines A-D, chromone alkaloids from Dysoxylum acutangulum.
Four new chromone alkaloids, chrotacumines A-D (1-4), consisting of a 5,7-dihydroxy-2-methylchromone, an N-Me piperidine ring, and an ester side chain were isolated from Dysoxylum acutangulum, andExpand
