  • Alpinia katsumadai is known to suppress thromboxane A2 (TXA2) receptor agonist-induced scratching in mice. The specific components of A. katsumadai responsible for these biological effects, however, are not known. In the present study, we investigated whether cardamonin (CDN), one of major principles of A. katsumadai, has suppressive effects on TXA2-induced scratching in mice. Scratching induced by U46619 (the TXA2 receptor agonist) at a dose of 10nmol/site was shown to be suppressed by CDN (0… CONTINUE READING
