BACKGROUND Resveratrol, a natural plant polyphenol, has received increasing attention because its varied bioactivities, including the inhibition of tumorigenesis, lipid modification and calorie-restriction. We aimed to investigate the effect of resveratrol on oxidative/nitrative stress in endotoxemia-associated acute lung injury. METHODS Mice were(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Fibrotic changes seem to be responsible for the high mortality rate observed in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The present study aimed to determine whether resveratrol, a natural antioxidant polyphenol, had anti-fibrotic effects in the murine model of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced pulmonary fibrosis. METHODS(More)
There is intensive interest in the design of tubular channels because of their novel structures and various applications in a variety of research fields. Herein, we present a series of coordination-driven Q[7]-derived organic nanochannels using an anion-induced strategy under different acid concentrations. An advantage of this approach is that the tubular(More)
In the present study, we introduce the coordination of samarium-Q[5] systems in the absence and presence of the third species, and the corresponding supramolecular assemblies are dependent upon the addition of the third species. In the absence of the third species, a samarium cation (nitrate salt) coordinates to a Q[5] molecule and forms a molecular bowl;(More)
To explore differences in coordination between alkali- and alkaline-earth-metal ions and cucurbit[n]urils, a water-soluble α,α',δ,δ'-tetramethylcucurbit[6]uril (TMeQ[6]) was used to synthesize a series of complexes and their supramolecular assemblies, based on the coordination of TMeQ[6] with alkali- and alkaline-earth-metal ions. The complexes and(More)
In the title compound, C10H12N8O4 H2O, prepared from the reaction of glycoluril with paraformaldehyde, the organic molecule has mm symmetry. The asymmetric unit comprises one quarter of the molecule and a half-molecule of water. The dimer is formed by bridging two glycoluril molecules with methylene groups at the 1 and 6 positions. In the crystal structure,(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(18)H(26)N(2) (2+)·2Br(-)·2H(2)O, consists of one-half of the organic cation, one Br(-) anion and one water mol-ecule. The organic cation is situated on a centre of inversion. The dihedral angle between the pyridine ring and the plane of the central linkage is 59.3 (1)°. The cations, anions and water mol-ecules(More)
In the structure of the title compound, C(37)H(40)N(4)O(8), penta-erythrityltetra-mine is bonded to four o-vanillin mol-ecules, forming a four-armed Schiff base mol-ecule. These mol-ecules are connected by inter-molecular C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds. Intramolecular C-H⋯N and O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds are also present.
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(16)H(24)Br(2)N(2)O(2), contains two independent mol-ecules, each which has two intra-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds linking the amine N atoms to the enolic O atoms of the same acacH-imine unit. In the crystal, the mol-ecules are lined up by inter-molecular weak C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming two vertical each(More)
