Corrigendum: Performance of the BG1Luc ER TA method in a qHTS format.
United States. In Altex, Dec 2015
the legend of Figure 1 should read: Fig. 1: Linear regression analysis of BG1 manual and qHTS EC50/AC50 values A linear regression analysis was conducted of EC50/AC50 values for 33 substances that tested positive in the BG1 manual and HTS methods.
Fatty acid transporters in skin development, function and disease.
Saint Louis, United States. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2014
Several proteins that are expressed in the epidermis have been proposed to facilitate the uptake of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) in mammalian cells, including fatty acid translocase/CD36, fatty acid binding protein, and fatty acid transport protein (FATP)/very long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase.
Glyceollin, a soybean phytoalexin with medicinal properties.
Hong Kong, Hong Kong. In Appl Microbiol Biotechnol, 2011
This review covers the biosynthesis of glyceollin and its biological activities including antiproliferative/antitumor action (toward B16 melanoma cells, LNCaP prostate cancer cells, and BG-1 ovarian cancer cells), anti-estrogenic action (through estrogen receptors α- and β-), antibacterial action (toward Erwinia carotovora, Escherichia coli, Bradyrhizobium japonicum, Sinorhizobium fredii ), antinematode activity, and antifungal activity (toward Fusarium solani, Phakospora pachyrhizi, Diaporthe phaseolorum, Macrophomina phaseolina, Sclerotina sclerotiorum, Phytophthora sojae, Cercospora sojina, Phialophora gregata, and Rhizoctonia solani).
Molecular mechanisms of alcoholic fatty liver: role of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha.
Indianapolis, United States. In Alcohol, 2004
Ethanol feeding decreased the level of retinoid X receptor alpha (RXRalpha) as well as the ability of PPARalpha/RXR in liver nuclear extracts to bind its consensus sequence, and the levels of mRNAs for several PPARalpha-regulated genes were reduced [long-chain acyl coenzyme A (acyl-CoA) dehydrogenase and medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase] or failed to be induced (acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, liver carnitine palmitoyl-CoA transferase I, very long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase, very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase) in livers of the ethanol-fed animals.
