Dehydrotrametenolic Acid Induces Preadipocyte Differentiation and Sensitizes Animal Models of Noninsulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus to Insulin Mayumi Sato, Takaaki Tai, Yoshiki Nunoura, Yukiko Yajima, Seiichi Kawashima and Keiji Tanaka We recently discovered that the triterpene acid compound dehydrotrametenolic acid promotes adipocyte dif­ferentiation in vitro and acts as an insulin sensitizer in vivo. This natural product has been isolated from dried sclerotia of Poria cocos WOLF (Polyporaceae), a well-known traditional Chinese medicinal plant. We examined the effects...

Effect of the Basidiomycete Poria cocos on Experimental Dermatitis and Other Inflammatory Conditions Maria Jesus CUELLAR, Rosa Maria GINER, Maria del Carmen RECIO, Maria Jose JUST, Salvador MANEZ,* and Jose Luis Rios Departament de Farmacologia, Facultat de Farmacia, Universitat de Valencia, Valencia, Spain. The hydroalcoholic extract from Poria cocos was examined for oral and topical anti-inflammatory activities. It proved to be active against carrageenan, arachidonic acid, tetradecanoyl phorbol acetate (TPA) acute edemas, TPA chronic inflammation and oxazolone delayed...

Isolation of Inhibitors of TPA-Induced Mouse Ear Edema from Hoelen, Poria cocos Haruo NUKAYA, Hirokazu YAMASHIRO, Hirotatsu FUKAZAWA, Hitoshi ISHIDA, and Kuniro TSUJI School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Shizuoka, Japan. Several anti-inflammatory substances are known to inhibit the action of tumor promoters in two-stage mouseskin carcinogenesis.”) Since anti-inflammatory activity may play an important role in the mechanism of anti-tumor promotion, we have searched for new anti-inflammatory substances among natural products. In this study, inhibitory...
