Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) is a well-known agent with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticarcinogenic properties. In this study, we observed that curcumin inhibited the kinase activity of v-Src, which led to a decrease in tyrosyl substrate phosphorylation of Shc, cortactin, and FAK. Our in vitro kinase experiment revealed that the inhibitory effect(More)
Histone acetylase and histone deacetylase are two crucial enzymes that determine the structure of chromatin, regulating gene expression. In this study, we observed that trichostatin A (TSA), a specific histone deacetylase inhibitor, could effectively inhibit the growth of v-Src-transformed (IV5) cells and abrogate their ability to form colonies in soft(More)
Production of the male specific compound, 6,10,13-trimethyltetradecyl isovalerate by the predatory stink bug Eocanthecona furcellata (Wolff) was dramatically affected by rearing conditions. Male bugs kept isolated after eclosion produced an average of 1,948 ng of 6,10,13-trimethyltetradecyl isovalerate per bug, whereas male bugs reared in groups of 5-8 bugs(More)
