Homovanillic acid is used as a reagent to detect oxidative enzymes, and is associated with dopamine levels in the brain. Abnormalities in white matter were associated with low CSF Homovanillic acid.
1. Herbacetin and gossypetin as taxonomic markers in higher plants.
2. Herbacetin induces HepG2 apoptosis in a ROS-mediated mitochondria-dependent manner that correlate with the inactivation of the PI3K/Akt pathway.
3. Herbacetin, a novel Met inhibitor with a potential utility in cancer therapeutics, suppresses the HGF-induced motility of human breast cancer MDA-MB-231 cells by inhibiting c-Met and Akt phosphorylation.
4. Herbacetin exerts an anti-inflammatory effect through suppression of LPS-induced JNK and NF-κB signaling pathways and diminished production of proinflammatory cytokines and mediators.
5. Herbacetin has a strong ability to scavenge free radical and inhibit oxidative protein damage.
4-Dimethylaminocinnamaldehyde is a photometric reagent for primary aromatic amines. The 4-(dimethylamino)cinnamaldehyde assay is currently used to quantify proanthocyanidin (PAC) content in cranberry products.
1. 3,4-Dihydroxyphenylglycol has antioxidant activity.
2. Plasma 3,4-dihydroxyphenylglycol and 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol are insensitive indicators of alpha 2-adrenoceptor mediated regulation of norepinephrine release in healthy human volunteers.
3. 3,4-Dihydroxyphenylglycol and hydroxytyrosyl acetate show a strong reactive oxygen species (ROS)-scavenging activity, reducing significantly nitrite levels with a significant decrease on iNOS expression, their phenolic derivatives could play an important role in the anti-inflammatory effect of extra virgin olive oil.
1. Tricine can clearly visualize tumors, may as melanoma imaging agents.
2. Using the combination of tricine and a phosphine ligand, HYNIC-derivatized peptides or other small molecules can be labeled with 99mTc in high specific activity and with high stability for potential use as radiopharmaceuticals.
