Shimatogarashi (Capsicum frutescens) is a typical chili pepper domesticated in southern Japan. Important traits of Shimatogarashi peppers, such as color; proportion of organic acids, capsaicinoids, and aromatic compounds; and antioxidant activity in three stages of maturity (green (immature), orange (turning), and red (mature) stages) were characterized. The results indicated that the concentration of organic acids, including ascorbic, citric, and malic acid, increased during ripening. In addition, the amount of capsaicinoids, which are responsible for the pungent taste of chili peppers, increased as the fruit matured to the orange and red stages...

We have developed an artificial skin that mimics the morphological and mechanical properties of human skin. The artificial skin comprises a polyurethane block possessing a microscopically rough surface. We evaluated the tactile sensations when skin-care cream was applied to the artificial skin. Many subjects perceived smooth, moist, and soft feels during the application process. Cluster analysis showed that these characteristic tactile feels are similar to those when skin-care cream is applied to real human skin...

An efficient synthetic protocol based on a new concept named "the pseudo-intramolecular process" is developed. Substrates are brought closed to each other by forming a salt, and this spatial proximity facilitates an efficient reaction like an intramolecular process, despite actually proceeding via an intermolecular pathway. This concept can be widely applied in organic synthesis. For instance, α-aryl-β-keto esters undergo a transacylation with amines accompanied by high efficiency, regioselectivity, and chemoselectivity...

Konjac ceramide (kCer) can be prepared by a chemoenzymatic method as previously published (Usuki, S.; Tamura, N.; Sakai, S.; Tamura, T.; Mukai, K.; Igarashi, Y. Biochem. Biophys. Rep. 5, 160-167 (2016)). Thus prepared kCer showed an activation effect on Sema3A signaling pathway to induce phosphorylation of CRMP2 and microtubule depolymerizaion, resulting in opposing NGF-induced neurite outgrowth. In the present study, we have shown that kCer is a potential Sema3A-like ligand that has a competitive effect on Sema3A binding to a cell surface receptor Nrp1, but animal-type ceramides have no effect on Sema3A binding to Nrp1...

The tuber of the konjac plant is a source enriched with GlcCer (kGlcCer), and has been used as a dietary supplement to improve the dry skin and itching that are caused by a deficiency of epidermal ceramide. Previously, we showed chemoenzymatically prepared konjac ceramide has a neurite-outgrowth inhibitory effect that is very similar to that of Sema3A and is not seen with animal-type ceramides. While, it has been unclear whether kCer may act on Sema3A or TrkA signaling pathway. In the present study, we showed kCer induces phosphorylation of CRMP2 and microtubules depolymerization via Sema3A signaling pathway not TrkA...

Edible fats and oils are among the basic components of the human diet, along with carbohydrates and proteins, and they are the source of high energy and essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acids. Edible fats and oils are used in for pan- and deep-frying, and in salad dressing, mayonnaise and processed foods such as chocolates and cream. The physical and chemical properties of edible fats and oils can affect the quality of oil foods and hence must be evaluated in detail. The physical characteristics of edible fats and oils include color, specific gravity, refractive index, melting point, congeal point, smoke point, flash point, fire point, and viscosity, while the chemical characteristics include acid value, saponification value, iodine value, fatty acid composition, trans isomers, triacylglycerol composition, unsaponifiable matters (sterols, tocopherols) and minor components (phospholipids, chlorophyll pigments, glycidyl fatty acid esters)...

Biosurfactants (BSs) are produced in abundance from various feedstocks by diverse microorganisms, and are used in various applications. In this paper, we describe a new yeast isolate that produces glycolipid-BSs from glycerol, with the aim of enhancing the utilization of the surplus glycerol produced by the oleo-chemical industry. As a result of the screening, strain ZM1502 was obtained as a potential producer of BS from glycerol. Based on TLC analysis, the strain produced glycolipid BSs. According to structural analyses (NMR, MALDI-TOF MS, and GC-MS), the main component of the glycolipids was 6',6"-di-O-acetylated acid-form sophorolipid (SL)...
