Oral Pharmacokinetics in Beagle Dogs of the Mitragynine Metabolite, 7-Hydroxymitragynine.

Eur J Drug Metab Pharmacokinet 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Department of Pharmaceutics, College of Pharmacy, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA.

Background And Objectives: 7-Hydroxymitragynine (7-HMG) is an oxidative metabolite of mitragynine, the most abundant alkaloid in the leaves of Mitragyna speciosa (otherwise known as kratom). While mitragynine is a weak partial µ-opioid receptor (MOR) agonist, 7-HMG is a potent and full MOR agonist. It is produced from mitragynine by cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A, a drug-metabolizing CYP isoform predominate in the liver that is also highly expressed in the intestine. Read More

Brain electrical traits of logical validity.

Sci Rep 2021 Apr 12;11(1):7982. Epub 2021 Apr 12.

Laboratory of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience, Universidad Complutense/Universidad Politécnica, Madrid, Spain.

Neuroscience has studied deductive reasoning over the last 20 years under the assumption that deductive inferences are not only de jure but also de facto distinct from other forms of inference. The objective of this research is to verify if logically valid deductions leave any cerebral electrical trait that is distinct from the trait left by non-valid deductions. 23 subjects with an average age of 20.

Hubei Key Laboratory of Natural Medicinal Chemistry and Resource Evaluation, School of Pharmacy, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan 430030, People's Republic of China. Electronic address:

Seventeen diterpenoids (1-17), classified into eight diverse carbon skeleton types, grayanane (1, 2, and 12), micranthane (3, 4, and 13), mollane (5-7 and 14), 1,5-seco-grayanane (8), kalmane (9-11), 1,5-seco-kalmane (15), A-homo-B-nor-ent-kaurane (16), and leucothane (17), respectively, were isolated from the leaves extract of Rhododendron micranthum. Among them, diterpenoids 1-9 are new compounds and their structures were elucidated via extensive spectroscopic methods, quantum chemical calculations including the C NMR-DP4+ analysis and electronic circular dichroism (ECD) calculations, and the single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Micranthanol A (1) represents the first example of a 5αH,9αH-grayanane diterpenoid and a 6-hydroxy-6,10-epoxygrayanane diterpenoid, and micranthanone B (3) is the first 6,10-epoxymicranthane and the 5α-hydroxy-micranthane diterpenoids.

Overexpression of MtRAV3 enhances osmotic and salt tolerance and inhibits growth of Medicago truncatula.

Plant Physiol Biochem 2021 Apr 4;163:154-165. Epub 2021 Apr 4.

Institute of Animal Sciences, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Beijing, 100193, China. Electronic address:

Related to ABI3/VP1 (RAV) transcription factors play important roles in regulating plant growth and stress tolerance, which have been studied in many plant species, but have remained largely unidentified in legumes. To functionally characterize RAV in legumes, MtRAV3 from legume model plant Medicago truncatula was isolated and its function was investigated by overexpressing MtRAV3 in M. truncatula. Read More

Spatiotemporal Heterogeneity of Chlorophyll Content and Fluorescence Response Within Rice ( L.) Canopies Under Different Nitrogen Treatments.

Front Plant Sci 2021 25;12:645977. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

College of Biosystems Engineering and Food Science, State Key Laboratory of Modern Optical Instrumentation, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.

Accurate acquisition of plant phenotypic information has raised long-standing concerns in support of crop breeding programs. Different methods have been developed for high throughput plant phenotyping, while they mainly focused on the canopy level without considering the spatiotemporal heterogeneity at different canopy layers and growth stages. This study aims to phenotype spatiotemporal heterogeneity of chlorophyll (Chl) content and fluorescence response within rice leaves and canopies. Read More

Is Induced by Short Days in Soybean and May Accelerate Flowering When Overexpressed in via Inhibiting .

Front Plant Sci 2021 26;12:629069. Epub 2021 Feb 26.

Key Laboratory of Soybean Biology of Ministry of Education, China (Key Laboratory of Biology and Genetics and Breeding for Soybean in Northeast China), Northeast Agricultural University, Harbin, China.

Photoperiod is one of the main climatic factors that determine flowering time and yield. Some members of the INDETERMINATE DOMAIN (IDD) transcription factor family have been reported to be involved in regulation of flowering time in Arabidopsis, maize, and rice. In this study, the domain analysis showed that GmIDD had a typical ID domain and was a member of the soybean IDD transcription factor family. Read More

Department of Biological Sciences, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo, 7-3-1, Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, 113-0033, Japan.

Organisms have a variety of three-dimensional (3D) structures that change over time. These changes include twisting, which is 3D deformation that cannot happen in two dimensions. Twisting is linked to important adaptive functions of organs, such as adjusting the orientation of leaves and flowers in plants to align with environmental stimuli (e. Read More
