Berberrubine (BRB), the active metabolite of berberine (BBR), possesses various pharmacological activities. In this study, we found BRB showed not only a stronger lipid-lowering effect than berberine but also a specific nephrotoxicity in mice fed with high fat diet (HFD). To explore the underlying mechanism, the pharmacokinetics of BRB were evaluated. There(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between metastasis-associated in colon cancer-1 and patient clinical characteristics. We also examined the role of metastasis-associated in colon cancer-1 in the proliferation and apoptosis in adenoid cystic carcinoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS Metastasis-associated in colon cancer-1(More)
UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) are the primary phase II enzymes catalyzing the conjugation of glucuronic acid to the xenobiotics with polar groups for facilitating their clearance. The UGTs belong to a superfamily that consists of diverse isoforms possessing distinct but overlapping metabolic activity. The abnormality or deficiency of UGTs in vivo is(More)
Gibberellins (GAs) are endogenous hormones that play an important role in higher plant growth and development. GA2-oxidase (GA2ox) promotes catabolism and inactivation of bioactive GAs or their precursors. In this study, we identified the GA2-oxidase gene, BnGA2ox6, and found it to be highly expressed in the silique and flower. Overexpression of BnGA2ox6 in(More)
