Vitamin E: inhibition of retinol-induced hemolysis and membrane-stabilizing behavior.
For the elucidation of the mechanism of membrane stabilization by vitamin E, the effects of alpha-tocopherol and its model compounds on either retinol-induced hemolysis of rabbit erythrocytes or theExpand
Magnetic resonance imaging of tumor with a self-traceable phosphorylcholine polymer.
Polymers are concentration-amplified with respect to the monomeric units. We show here that a phosphorylcholine polymer enriched with (13)C/(15)N at the methyl groups is self-traceable byExpand
Determination of chemical structure of pea pectin by using pectinolytic enzymes.
The chemical structure of pea pectin was delineated using pectin-degrading enzymes and biochemical methods. The molecular weight of the pea pectin preparation was 488,000, with 50 % arabinoseExpand
Membrane stabilizing effect of vitamin E: existence of a hydrogen bond between alpha-tocopherol and phospholipids in bilayer liposomes.
In order to elucidate the existence of a hydrogen bond between alpha-tocopherol and phospholipids in bilayer liposomes, the effects of the presence or absence of alpha-tocopherol or its acetate onExpand
STM study of one-dimensional cluster formation of fullerenes: Dimerization of Y{at}C{sub 82}
We have studied one-dimensional cluster formation of ${\mathrm{C}}_{60},$ ${\mathrm{Y}\mathrm{@}\mathrm{C}}_{82},$ and ${\mathrm{Gd}\mathrm{@}\mathrm{C}}_{82}$ along the step of the Cu(111)Expand
Isolation of GnafC, a Polysaccharide Constituent of Gnaphalium affine, and Synergistic Effects of GnafC and Ascorbate on the Phenotypic Expression of Osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 Cells
After screening extensively factors in plant extracts that increase alkaline phosphatase activity, an osteoblastic differentiation marker protein in mouse calvarial osteoblast MC3T3-E1 cells, GnafCExpand
Chemistry of 1,3-Glycol Derivatives. IV. Mechanism of the Solvolyses of 2,4-Pentanediol Derivatives and the Reactions of the Proposed Intermediate Acetoxonium Ions with Carbanions and Hydride
Regio- and stereochemical studies of the solvolyses of various kinds of 2,4-pentanediol derivatives, including 2-acetoxy-4-tosylates, cyclic orthoformates and orthoacetates, have been done and theExpand
Magnetic resonance imaging of tumor with a self-traceable polymer conjugated with an antibody fragment.
A (13)C-enriched phosphorylcholine polymer ((13)C-PMPC) as a self-traceable MR (magnetic resonance) tag was conjugated with a fragment (scFv) of Herceptin, a clinical antibody against antigen Her2.Expand
Hemin- and myoglobin-catalyzed reaction of 1-palmitoyl-2-linoleoyl-3-sn-phosphatidylcholine 13-hydroperoxide with γ-tocopherol in micelles and liposomes.
The secondary process of lipid peroxidation proceeds by the free radical reaction to produce some toxic aldehydes. Since γ-tocopherol (γ-TH), one of the major forms of vitamin E in some vegetableExpand
