(R)-4-(3,4-Dihydro-8,8-dimethyl)-2H,8H-benzo[1,2-b:3,4-b']dipyran-3yl)-1,3-benzenediol (glabridin), a flavonoid present in licorice extract, is known to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and cardiovascular protective activities. In the present study, we report the inhibitory effect of glabridin on nitric oxide (NO) production and inducible nitric oxide(More)
In the present study, we investigated the effect of agelasine D (AD) on osteoclastogenesis. Treatment of bone marrow macrophages (BMMs) with receptor activator of nuclear factor κB ligand (RANKL) resulted in a differentiation of BMMs into osteoclasts as evidenced by generation of tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP)-positive, multinucleated cells and(More)
This study was undertaken to observe the effects of organic or inorganic calcium antagonists and to investigate the involvement of cyclic nucleotides in regulating the vascular tone in the chorionic artery from normal or preeclamptic placenta. KCI and prostaglandin (PG) F2 alpha produced marked and constant contractions in chorionic arterial preparations of(More)
