The tyrosinase enzyme from mushroom is not as selective as the one from mammalian source for the enzyme-based melanogenesis inhibitory screening, and the mammalian cell-based assay appears to be a more reliable model for screening than the enzyme -based one.
Purification and characterization of tyrosine aminotransferase activities from Anchusa officinalis cell cultures.
Extraction of flavonoids and carotenoids from Thai silk waste and antioxidant activity of extracts
Potential targets in the discovery of new hair growth promoters for androgenic alopecia
It is unlikely that single targeted agents will be sufficient for treating Androgenic alopecia, and therefore, it would be a challenge to obtain compounds with multiple activities.
Tyrosine aminotransferase: The entrypoint enzyme of the tyrosine-derived pathway in rosmarinic acid biosynthesis
Effects of macronutrients on growth and rosmarinic acid formation in cell suspension cultures of Anchusa officinalis
Investigation of the influence of various macronutrients on growth and RA formation in cell suspension cultures of Anchusa officinalis showed that RA production is inhibited by 2,4-D- containing revised medium but stimulated by NAA-containing revised medium.
