- ... Recently, we have identified novel saponins from edible seeds of Japanese horse chestnut (Aesculus turbinata BLUME) after processing the natural seeds with wood ashes to remove bitterness. We attempted to determine anti-obesity effects of those saponins from edible seeds as well as natural seeds. The purified individual components of saponins from natural and edible seeds inhibited pancreatic lipa ...

We characterized C-type retroviruses expressed in the pancreatic β-cells of non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice by immunohistochemical techniques and by inhibiting the production of viral particles using antisense oligonucleotides. Some cells in the pancreatic islets from both NOD and diabetes-resistant NOD-related mice (NON) reacted with a monoclonal antibody directed against the envelope protein(s) of ...
