We showed recently that ginsenosides inhibit the activity of various types of ion channel. Here we have investigated the role of the carbohydrate component of ginsenoside Rg3 in the inhibition of Na+ channels. The channels were expressed in Xenopus oocytes by injecting cRNAs encoding rat brain Nav1.2 alpha and beta1 subunits, and analyzed by the(More)
Unfolded protein response (UPR) is crucial for both survival and death of mammalian cells, which is regulated by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nutrient depletion. In this study, we demonstrated the effect of ROS-accumulation, induced by β-phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), on UPR-mediated apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells. We used ovarian cancer cell(More)
Antioxidant flavonoids have been isolated from the flower of Rhododendron yedoense var. poukhanense. One new flavonoid and three known flavonoids, quercetin-5-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (1), quercetin (3), and quercitrin (4), were isolated from the butanol and ethyl acetate extracts of the plant. The new flavonoid was identified as myricitrin-5-methyl ether(More)
