Role of sulfatide in normal and pathological cells and tissues
Sulfatide is 3-O-sulfogalactosylceramide that is synthesized by two transferases (ceramide galactosyltransferase and cerebroside sulfotransferase) from ceramide and is specifically degraded by aExpand

Comparison of enzymatically synthesized inulin, resistant maltodextrin and clofibrate effects on biomarkers of metabolic disease in rats fed a high-fat and high-sucrose (cafeteria) diet
BackgroundWhile naturally occurring inulin has anti-hyperlipidemic effects in animals and humans, health effects of synthetic inulin with different degrees of fructose polymerization remain poorlyExpand

Human trachea primary epithelial cells express both sialyl(α2-3)Gal receptor for human parainfluenza virus type 1 and avian influenza viruses, and sialyl(α2-6)Gal receptor for human influenza viruses
We reported previously that the dominant receptors of influenza A and B viruses, and human and murine respiroviruses, were sialylglycoproteins and gangliosides containing monosialo-lactosamine typeExpand

The quail and chicken intestine have sialyl-galactose sugar chains responsible for the binding of influenza A viruses to human type receptors.
The receptor specificity of influenza viruses is one factor that allows avian influenza viruses to cross the species barrier. The recent transmissions of avian H5N1 and H9N2 influenza viruses fromExpand

Edible bird's nest extract inhibits influenza virus infection
Abstract Edible bird's nest (EBN) is the nest of the swift that is made from its saliva. Although EBN has been widely used for enhancing immunocompetence, its antiviral efficacy has not beenExpand

Antiviral effect of strictinin on influenza virus replication.
Strictinin, which is a member of the ellagitanin family of hydrolyzable tannins, prevented replication of human, duck and swine influenza A viruses (IAVs) in vitro at non-toxic concentrations. TheExpand

Sulfatide Is Required for Efficient Replication of Influenza A Virus
ABSTRACT Sulfatide is abundantly expressed in various mammalian organs, including the intestines and trachea, in which influenza A viruses (IAVs) replicate. However, the function of sulfatide in IAVExpand

Synthesis and anti-influenza virus activity of novel glycopolymers having triantennary oligosaccharide branches
An efficient method for the synthesis of novel glycopolymers with triantennary sialooligosaccharides showing potent anti-influenza virus activity is described. Polymerisable glycoside of triantennaryExpand

Down-regulation of TRPM6-mediated magnesium influx by cyclosporin A
Transient receptor potential melastatin 6 (TRPM6) is distributed along the apical membrane of the renal tubular cells and is involved in the reabsorption of magnesium. In this study, we show thatExpand

In vitro inhibition of human influenza A virus infection by fruit-juice concentrate of Japanese plum (Prunus mume SIEB. et ZUCC).
Using a plaque reduction assay, treatment of human influenza A viruses with the fruit-juice concentrate of Japanese plum (Prunus mume SIEB. et ZUCC) showed strong in vitro anti-influenza activityExpand
