It significantly reduced both the cellular melanin content and tyrosinase activity in a concentration-dependent manner. An MTT assay did not reveal any obvious(More)
We examined age-related changes in the protein expression of carbonic anhydrase III (CAIII) in livers of Long-Evans with a cinnamon-like color (LEC) rats using an agouti color (LEA) rats as controls. The levels of the protein of CAIII in the liver of LEC male rats increased before 20 weeks of age, at the stage of acute hepatitis, and were decreased at 54(More)
