Are Histones the Targets for Flavan-3-ols (Catechins) in Nuclei?
Abstract Binding of flavan-3-ols to nuclei is characteristic of Tsuga canadensis (coniferous tree). This is achieved with the DMACA reagent (ρ-dimethylaminocinnamaldehyde), which stains almostExpand

Flavonoids in plant nuclei: detection by laser microdissection and pressure catapulting (LMPC), in vivo staining, and uv–visible spectroscopic titration
Previous studies in our laboratory have indicated that the nuclei of a number of trees are associated with flavonoids, especially flavan--3--ols. In the present study, three techniques were appliedExpand

New methods for spectrometric peak purity analysis in chromatography 1 Dedicated to Prof. Dr. E. Bay
Abstract Simple methods for peak purity analysis in chromatography are proposed for accurately assaying the chromatographic or electrophoretic process by spectroscopy. With these methods, the purityExpand

Nuclei of Taxus baccata: Flavanols Linked to Chromatin Remodeling Factors
Microscopic studies of young needles and shoot tips from Taxus baccata showed that flavanols are localized in the nuclei. This observation is based on the histochemical staining of flavanols with theExpand

Eco-friendly application of EVs for home-to-work and home-to-education transports
Electric vehicles (EVs) today in general are operated with energy from the electric grid. So energy for the EVs is basically available at almost each place on the world. If the energy for the gridsExpand

FLAVANOLS IN NUCLEI AND CYTOPLASM: REDUCTION OF THE MICRONUCLEI-INDUCING EFFECT OF AFLATOXIN B1 IN V79 CELLS THROUGH CATECHIN
Nuclei of V79 cells showed that, in response to the carcinogen aflatoxin B 1 (0.10 - 2.5 μg/ml), the average number of micronuclei was significantly increased in comparison with controls.Expand

Fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) to demonstrate the nuclear binding of flavanols and (–-epigallocatechin gallate
The use of light microscopy and DMACA staining strongly suggested that plant and animal cell nuclei act as sinks for flavanols [1, 2]. Detailed uv-vis spectroscopic titration experiments indicatedExpand
