1. Guinea pig maintained on a vitamin C and tryptophan deficient diet dies of scurvy earlier (12-15 days).2. In an insufficient vitamin C feeding, the appearance of scurvy can be delayed by administrating anthranilic acid.3. Experimentally induced alcaptonuria disappears by giving anthranilic acid. The effects of glutathione and Na2S2O3 are not apparent. Vitamin C and anthranilic acid have no effect on congenital alcaptonuria.4. The oxidation by liver homogenate of p-hydroxyphenylpyruvate and… Expand

Vitamin C down-regulate apo(a) expression via Tet2-dependent DNA demethylation in HepG2 cells.
Results showed that vitamin C significantly inhibited the expression and secretion levels of apo(a), and suggested vitamin C down-regulate apolipoprotein(a) expression via Tet2-dependent DNA demethylation in HepG2 cells. Expand
Anthranilic acid hydroxylation by rabbit-liver microsomes.
The enzyme requires reduced nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide phosphate as a cofactor and the activity is inhibited by Cu2+, Ag+, metal-chelating agents and sulfhydryl inhibitors such as p-chloromercuribenzoate and α-chloroacetophenone. Expand

Lipoprotein(a)[Lp(a)] is a risk factor for coronary heart diseases. However, the metabolism of this protein remains poorly understood. Efficient and specific drugs that can decrease high plasmaExpand
