Novel selective ligands for free fatty acid receptors GPR120 and GPR40
These studies identified a selective GPR40 agonist and several GPR120 partial agonists, and similar profiles of glucagon-like peptide-1 secretion were seen for mouse enteroendocrine cell line, STC-1 cells, which express GPR 120 endogenously. Expand
Chemical Constituents of the Bryophytes
In the twelve years since the first review article dealing with chemical constituents of the Hepaticae appeared in this series as Volume 42 (19), several short reviews concerned with chemicalExpand
Biologically active compounds from bryophytes
Liverworts produce a great variety of lipophilic terpenoids, aromatic compounds, and acetogenins. Many of these constituents have characteristic scents, pungency, and bitterness, and display a quiteExpand
CD36- and GPR120-mediated Ca²⁺ signaling in human taste bud cells mediates differential responses to fatty acids and is altered in obese mice.
CD36 and GPR120 have nonoverlapping roles in TBC signaling during orogustatory perception of dietary lipids; these are differentially regulated by obesity. Expand
Chemical Constituents of Hepaticae
It is the major object of this review to present the presently known naturally occurring terpenoids and aromatic compounds of the Hepaticae. Furthermore, the biological activity of the isolatedExpand
Phytochemical and biological studies of bryophytes.
Each liverwort biosynthesizes unique components, which are valuable for their chemotaxonomic classification, and typical chemical structures and biological activity of the selected liverworts constituents as well as the total synthesis of some biologically active compounds are summarized. Expand
De Novo Sequencing and Transcriptome Analysis of the Central Nervous System of Mollusc Lymnaea stagnalis by Deep RNA Sequencing
The results demonstrated that about 20,000 sequences had significant similarity to the reported sequences using a cutoff value of 1e-6, and showed the lack of molluscan sequences in the public databases, and allowed us to identify a large number of new transcripts in Lymnaea and mollUScan species.

Structures of a novel binaphthyl and three novel benzophenone derivatives with plant-growth inhibitory activity from the fungus Daldinia concentrica
A novel binaphthyl (1) and three novel benzophenone derivatives (2-4) have been isolated from the fungus (Ascomycetes) Daldinia concentrica. Their structures have been established by a combination ofExpand
Chemical Divergence in Floral Scents of Magnolia and Allied Genera (Magnoliaceae)
Abstract Floral scents emitted from Magnolia, Michelia and Liriodendron taxa native to or cultivated in North America, Mexico and Japan were collected by the headspace method and analyzed using gasExpand
