  1. Matsuzaki K, Miyazaki K, Sakai S, Yawo H, Nakata N, Moriguchi S, et al. Nobiletin, a citrus flavonoid with neurotrophic action, augments protein kinase A-mediated phosphorylation of the AMPA receptor subunit, GluR1, and the postsynaptic receptor response to glutamate in murine hippocampus. Eur J Pharmacol. 2008;578:194-200 pubmed
    ..These findings suggest that nobiletin probably up-regulates synaptic transmission via the postsynaptic AMPA receptors at least partially by stimulation of PKA-mediated phosphorylation of GluR1 receptor in the hippocampus. ..
  2. Moriguchi R, Ohata K, Kanahama K, Takahashi H, Nishiyama M, Kanayama Y. Suppression of telomere-binding protein gene expression represses seed and fruit development in tomato. J Plant Physiol. 2011;168:1927-33 pubmed publisher
    ..LeTBP1 expression was sensitive to temperature stress in wild-type plants. We conclude that LeTBP1 plays a critical role in seed and fruit development rather than vegetative growth and flower formation. ..
  3. Nakatani K, Atsumi M, Arakawa T, Oosawa K, Shimura S, Nakahata N, et al. Inhibitions of histamine release and prostaglandin E2 synthesis by mangosteen, a Thai medicinal plant. Biol Pharm Bull. 2002;25:1137-41 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that the 40% ethanol extract of mangosteen has potent inhibitory activities of both histamine release and prostaglandin E2 synthesis...
  4. Indra B, Tadano T, Nakagawasai O, Arai Y, Yasuhara H, Ohizumi Y, et al. Suppressive effect of nantenine, isolated from Nandina domestica Thunberg, on the 5-hydroxy-L-tryptophan plus clorgyline-induced head-twitch response in mice. Life Sci. 2002;70:2647-56 pubmed
    ..1 microM) and D2-dopaminergic (Ki = 1.7 microM) receptors of the mouse brain. These results suggest that nantenine inhibits l-5-HTP plus clorgyline-induced head- twitch response by blocking 5-HT2A receptors in the central nervous system...
  5. Ohta K, Kanahama K, Kanayama Y. Enhanced expression of a novel dioxygenase during the early developmental stage of tomato fruit. J Plant Physiol. 2005;162:697-702 pubmed publisher
  6. Ogasawara S, Abe K, Nakajima T. Pepper beta-galactosidase 1 (PBG1) plays a significant role in fruit ripening in bell pepper (Capsicum annuum). Biosci Biotechnol Biochem. 2007;71:309-22 pubmed publisher
    ..Based on these results, it appears that the hydrolysis of galactose residues in pectic substances is the first event in the ripening process in bell pepper fruit...
