β-ionone has been shown to hold potent anti-proliferative and apoptosis induction properties in vitro and in vivo. To investigate the effects of β-ionone on apoptosis initiation and its possible mechanisms of action, we qualified cell apoptosis, proteins related to apoptosis and a phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)—AKT pathway in human gastric(More)
β-Ionone is an end ring analog of β-carotenoid which has been shown to possess potent anti-proliferative activity both in vitro and in vivo. To investigate the possible inhibitory effects of β-ionone, we studied cell growth characteristics, DNA synthesis, cell cycle progression, as well as mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) pathways in the human(More)
A series of novel N-substituted tyramine (2-p-hydroxyphenylethylamine) derivatives (1 to approximately 11) were synthesized and evaluated for their inhibitory activity against pig kidney aldose reductase (EC 1, 1, 1, 21). Of these compounds, N-2-p-hydroxyphenylethyl maleamic acid (10) exhibits the strongest aldose reductase inhibitory activity, which is 22(More)
