Polo-like kinase-1 (Plk1) has a pivotal role in cell proliferation and is considered a potential target for anticancer therapy. The noncatalytic polo-box domain (PBD) of Plk1 forms a phosphoepitope binding module for protein-protein interaction. Here, we report the identification of minimal phosphopeptides that specifically interact with the PBD of human(More)
We have demonstrated previously that the 20(S) but not the 20(R) form of ginsenoside Rg(3) inhibited K(+) currents flowing through Kv1.4 (hKv1.4) channels expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes, pointing to the presence of specific interaction site(s) for Rg(3) in the hKv1.4 channel. In the current study, we sought to identify this site(s). To this end, we(More)
Wound healing plays an important role in protecting the human body from external infection. Cell migration and proliferation of keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts are essential for proper wound healing. Recently, several studies have demonstrated that secondary compounds produced in plants could affect skin cells migration and proliferation. In this(More)
The obese Zucker rat, whose genotype is transmitted in an autosomal recessive fashion, is an animal model widely used in the field of obesity. The expression of the nuclear transcription factors c-Fos and c-Jun in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and arcuate nucleus (ARC) of the hypothalamus of obese Zucker rats was studied using immunohistochemical(More)
Euphorbia humifusa Willd is an annual plant widely used as a vegetable and traditional medicinal herb. E. humifusa Willd displays a variety of pharmacological actions; however, the effect of E. humifusa Willd on the innate immune response has not been well characterized. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of an E. humifusa Willd methanolic(More)
In the title mol-ecule, C19H20O4, the central C=C double bond adopts an E configuration. The dihedral angle formed by the planes of the two benzene rings is 83.57 (12)°. The three meth-oxy groups are essentially coplanar with the benzene rings to which they are attached, with C C-O-C torsion angles of -0.2 (3), -2.3 (3) and -4.1 (3)°.
In the title compound, C22H18O6, the dimeth-oxy-substituted naphthalene ring system is twisted relative to the 4H-chromenon skeleton by 88.96 (3)°. The two meth-oxy substituents are tilted from the naphthalene ring system by 1.4 (4) and 113.0 (2)°, respectively. An intra-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bond closes an S(5) ring motif. In the crystal, pairs of O-H⋯O(More)
Chalcones, one class of polyphenolic compounds synthesized as secondary metabolites during flavonoid biosynthesis in plants, have anti-inflammatory and antitumorigenic effects. In this study, we investigated the roles of a novel chalcone derivative, (E)-3-(3,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-1-(1-hydroxynaphthalen-2-yl)prop-2-en-1-one (DK-59), on rheumatoid arthritis (RA)(More)
In the title compound, C17H14O5, the dimeth-oxy-substituted benzene ring is twisted relative to the 4H-chromenon skeleton (r.m.s. deviation = 0.015 Å) by 5.2 (4)°. The C atoms of the meth-oxy groups lie close to the plane of their attached benzene ring [deviations = 0.036 (3) and 0.290 (3)Å for the meta and para substituents, respectively]. An(More)
