|20100197782||THERAPEUTIC AGENT FOR VIRUS-ASSOCIATED MALIGNANCY - A therapeutic agent comprising fucoxanthin or fucoxanthinol as an active component is disclosed. The therapeutic agent is effective and high clinical utility for medical treatment and prevention of virus-associated malignancy such as adult T-cell leukemia and Burkitt lymphoma.||08-05-2010|
|20100113390||OLIGOSACCHARIDES DERIVED FROM FUCOIDAN - The present invention provides a fucoidan-derived low molecular weight compound with a good quality of taste, which has a specified structure and function and is free from problems in absorption, antigenicity, uniformity, an anticoagulant activity and so on, which problems arise when developing fucoidan, a sulfated polysaccharide having an extremely large molecular weight, as drugs or health foods. As a result of analyzing low molecular weight compounds obtained by acid hydrolysis of fucoidan, the inventors have identified fucoidan oligosaccharides (I) to (XI). Further, these oligosaccharides have been found to have anti-obesity and/or blood glucose elevation suppressing effects through inhibition of carbohydrate and/or lipid absorption as a result of α-glucosidase inhibition and/or lipase inhibition.||05-06-2010|
|20100055219||ANTIINFLAMMATORY AGENT - An object of the invention is to find, from nature, a compound which does not have a side effect such as a hormone action or gastrointestinal disturbance as steroidal or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents and has an anti-inflammatory action being as good as that of those anti-inflammatory agents and is to provide an anti-inflammatory agent where an extract prepared by extraction of leaves of Yabutsubaki (||03-04-2010|
|20090143318||DEGRANULATION INHIBITOR - An object of the invention is to find in nature a compound having a degranulation inhibitory action comparable to that of steroidal or non-steroidal degranulation inhibitors, but without any side effect such as hormone action or gastrointestinal disturbances which are observed in these inhibitors, and there is provided a degranulation inhibitor comprising as an active ingredient an ellagic acid derivative of the formula (I):||06-04-2009|
|20090093018||METHOD OF PRODUCING HETERODIMER DERIVATIVE OF PROTEIN PHOSPHATASE TYPE 2A ENZYME - The purpose of the invention is to provide an activated protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) in large quantities with high purity by a genetic engineering and to provide a method for producing a heterodimer derivative of PP2A which comprises infecting insect cultured cells with a baculovirus in which a cDNA encoding the catalytic subunit of PP2A carrying a first tag is integrated together with another baculovirus in which a cDNA encoding the A subunit of PP2A carrying a second tag is integrated, incubating the infected cells, disrupting the incubated cells to obtain a disrupted cell suspension, and then purifying the disrupted cell suspension with a solid phase carrying a substance capable of binding to the first tag and another solid phase carrying a substance capable of binding to the second tag, characterized in that the insect cells infected with the baculovirus are incubated at a temperature of from 18 to 22° C.||04-09-2009|
