We isolated GAGs from the inedible parts; head, skin, internal organs, fins, scales and spine, of atlantic mackerel (Scomber scombrus), japanese jack mackerel (Trachurus japonicus), pacific bluefin tuna (Thunnus orientalis), yellowfin sole (Limanda aspera), broadbanded thornyhead (Sebastolobus macrochir), golden threadfin bream (Nemipterus virgatus), and(More)
Two new potent serine protease inhibitors, cyclotheonamides E2 (3) and E3 (4), have been isolated from a marine sponge of the genus Theonella. Their structures were determined by interpretation of spectral data and chemical degradation studies. They are closely related to the previously reported cyclotheonamide E, from which they differ in the N-acyl group(More)
Regiospecifically sulfated chondroitin sulfate repeating tetrasaccharides, CS-OO, GlcAβ-GalNAcβ-GlcAβ-GalNAcβ;CS-EE, GlcAβ-GalNAc(4S6S)β-GlcAβ-GalNAc(4S6S)β; and CS-AA, GlcAβ-GalNAc(4S)β-GlcAβ-GalNAc(4S)β, having biotin linked with a hydrophilic linker at the reducing terminal were synthesized effectively by a coupling of the corresponding disaccharide(More)
(2-Hydroxyethyl) dimethylsulfoxonium chloride (1), the well-known causative agent of Dogger Bank Itch, has been isolated as a cytotoxic constituent from the marine sponge Theonella aff. mirabilis. The structure of 1 was determined by spectral and X-ray crystallographic analyses.
Li2MnO3 powder with a monoclinic cell related to the space group of C2/m was synthesized by a simplified coprecipitation method, followed by a combustion technique. Its electrode properties as a lithium-battery cathode were investigated in the charge-discharge potential ranges of 2.0 – 4.6, 2.0 – 4.8, and 2.0 – 5.0 V. In all the potential ranges, the(More)
