Abstract : Flubendiamide, N2-[1,1-dimethyl-2-(methylsulfonyl)ethyl]-3-iodo-N1-[2-methyl-4-[1,2,2,2-tetrafluoro-1-(trifluoromethyl)ethyl]phenyl]-1,2-benzenedicarboxamide, is a novel class of insecticide having a unique chemical structure. The uniqueness of the structure results from three parts with novel substituents; a heptafluoroisopropyl group in the anilide moiety, a sulfonylalkyl group in the aliphatic amide moiety, and an iodine atom at the 3-position of the phthalic acid moiety. The compound shows extremely strong insecticidal activity especially against lepidopterous pests including resistant strains. Flubendiamide would have a novel mode of action, because the insecticidal symptoms accompanied by a discriminative contraction of the larval body are distinguished from those of commercial insecticides. It is also very safe for non-target organisms. Flubendiamide is expected to be a suitable agent for controlling lepidopterous insects as part of the insect resistance management and the integrated pest management programs.

Abstract : As a base for human transcriptome and functional genomics, we created the "full-length long Japan" (FLJ) collection of sequenced human cDNAs. We determined the entire sequence of 21,243 selected clones and found that 14,490 cDNAs (10,897 clusters) were unique to the FLJ collection. About half of them (5,416) seemed to be protein-coding. Of those, 1,999 clusters had not been predicted by computational methods. The distribution of GC content of nonpredicted cDNAs had a peak at approximately 58% compared with a peak at approximately 42%for predicted cDNAs. Thus, there seems to be a slight bias against GC-rich transcripts in current gene prediction procedures. The rest of the cDNAs unique to the FLJ collection (5,481) contained no obvious open reading frames (ORFs) and thus are candidate noncoding RNAs. About one-fourth of them (1,378) showed a clear pattern of splicing. The distribution of GC content of noncoding cDNAs was narrow and had a peak at approximately 42%, relatively low compared with that of protein-coding cDNAs.

Title : Regioselective acylation of flavonoid glucoside with aromatic acid by an enzymatic reaction system from cultured cells of Ipomoea batatas - Nakajima_2000_J.Biosci.Bioeng_90_347

Abstract : The regioselective acylation of naturally occurring plant pigments with aromatic acids such as caffeic acid and p-coumaric acid was examined by an enzymatic reaction system from cultured cells of Ipomoea batatas. Isoquercitrin, a flavonoid glucoside, was converted to isoquercitrin 6''-O-caffeate by the enzymatic system. Chrysanthemin, an anthocyanin, was also acylated to the corresponding caffeate ester. This enzymatic method should prove useful for the synthesis of acylated flavonoid glucosides such as isoquercitrin caffeate, whose productivity is low using lipase-catalyzed transesterification.

Title : Lipase-catalyzed direct and regioselective acylation of flavonoid glucoside for mechanistic investigation of stable plant pigments - Nakajima_1999_J.Biosci.Bioeng_87_105

Abstract : One-step and regioselective acylation of flavonoid glucosides was achieved by lipase-catalyzed transesterification in dry organic media. For example, isoquercitrin (quercetin 3-O-glucoside), one of the flavonol monoglucosides, was converted efficiently to the corresponding aromatic acid ester (isoquercitrin 6''-O-cinnamate) by a lipase with vinyl cinnamate as an acyl donor. The method described, which is the first allowing the direct synthesis of aromatic acid esters of flavonoid glucosides, can be applied to the acylation of other glucosides, including naringin, rutin, callistephin, and chrysanthemin.

Abstract : Toluene is a widely abused inhaled solvent. This study was designed to determine whether toluene abuse affects the reproductive functions or general health of males. Seven-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to toluene vapor inhalation (0, 4000, or 6000 ppm; 2 h/day) daily for 5 weeks. Exposure-related suppression of body weight gain and food consumption were observed. Salivation and lacrimation were observed during exposure periods and intensified with repeated exposure. Rats exposed to 6000 ppm toluene had decreased spleen and thymus weights, as well as suppressed lymphocyte counts. In 6000 ppm group, the epididymal sperm counts, sperm motility, sperm quality and in vitro penetrating ability to zona-free hamster eggs were significantly reduced, while no exposure-related changes in the testes weight or spermatogenesis within testes were detected. Tail-less sperm heads were seen within zona-free eggs incubated with sperm from rats exposed to 6000 ppm toluene, but not control rats. No significant changes were observed in serum luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, or testosterone levels following 1 month of exposure to 6000 ppm toluene. These results indicate that high concentrations of toluene may directly target sperm in the epididymis and disrupt sperm maturation.

Title : Lipase-catalyzed synthesis of arbutin cinnamate in an organic solvent and application of transesterification to stabilize plant pigments - Nakajima_1997_Biosci.Biotechnol.Biochem_61_1926

Abstract : Arbutin cinnamate was synthesized from arbutin (4-hydroxyphenyl beta-D-glucopyranoside) and vinyl cinnamate by regioselective transesterification with a bacterial lipase in acetonitrile. The product was identified by NMR and FAB-MS analyses. These spectra showed that one ester bond was formed between the primary alcohol moiety of the D-glucose of arbutin and the carboxyl residue of cinnamic acid. Furthermore, plant pigments such as isoquercitrin (quercetin 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside) and callistephin (pelargonidin 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside) were also converted to their corresponding cinnamate esters in the same manner.

Title : Synthesis and structure-activity studies of a series of 1-oxa-8-azaspiro[4.5]decanes as M1 muscarinic agonists - Tsukamoto_1995_Chem.Pharm.Bull.(Tokyo)_43_842

Abstract : 2,8-Dimethyl-1-oxa-8-azaspiro[4,5]decan-3-one (17), designed by incorporating the tetrahydrofuran ring moiety of muscarone into an 8-azaspiro[4,5]decane skeleton, and related 1-oxa-8-azaspiro[4.5]decanes were synthesized and assessed as M1 muscarinic agonists for the symptomatic treatment of dementia of Alzheimer's type. The compounds were tested for central muscarinic M1 and M2 receptor affinity and in vivo muscarinic activities: namely, amelioration of scopolamine-induced impairment in rat passive avoidance tasks, and induction of hypothermia, tremor, and salivary secretion. Compound 17 exhibited potent muscarinic activities in vitro and in vivo with no selectivity. Systematic modifications of 17 were conducted, and a number of compounds, including the 2-ethyl analogue (18), 3-methylene analogue (29), 3-dithioketal analogues (26, 28), and 3-oxime analogue (37) were found to display preferential affinity for M1 receptors over M2 receptors and, in addition, to exhibit potent antiamnesic activity sufficiently separated from hypothermia-inducing activity, taken as an index of cholinergic side effects, compared with the reference compound RS86 (1). Structure-activity relationships are discussed in comparison with those for muscarone analogues. Of these compounds only two, 2-ethyl-8-methyl-1-oxa-8-azaspiro[4.5]decan-3-one (18) and 2,8-dimethyl-3-methylene-1-oxa-8-azaspiro[4.5]decane (29), stimulated phosphoinositide hydrolysis in rat hippocampal slices, indicating partial agonistic activity for M1 muscarinic receptors. The optical resolution of 18 and 29 was performed. Eudismic ratios of both compounds in binding affinity were low, but M1 agonist activity resided preferentially in the (-)-isomers. The absolute configuration of (-)-29 was determined by X-ray crystal structure analysis to be S, being the same as that of muscarone. Based on the in vivo selectivity, (-)-29 was selected for clinical studies.
