    The compositions of the essential oils obtained from leaves and stems of Gynura bicolor DC. were analyzed by GC-MS. One hundred eight components of these oils were identified. (E)-β-caryophyllene (31.42 %), α-pinene (17.11 %), and bicyclogermacrene (8.09 %) were found to be the main components of the leaf oil, while α-pinene (61.42 %), β-pinene (14.39 %), and myrcene (5.10 %) were the major constituents of the stem oil. We found 73 previously unidentified components in these oils from G. bicolor. The oils were also subjected to odor evaluation. Eleven and 12 aroma-active compounds were detected in the leaf and stem oils, respectively. The abilities of these oils to inhibit acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity were determined. The sesquiterpenoids in the oils were found to inhibit AChE activity more strongly than the monoterpenoids in the oils did. It was suggested that the three main components in each essential oil act synergistically against AChE activity. These results show that the essential oils obtained from G. bicolor are a good dietary source of AChE activity inhibition.

    This study was conducted to determine the composition of essential oil from buds of male and female Eurya japonica flowers and to determine the aroma-active compounds of this plant by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), sensory evaluation, and odor activity values (OAV). The oils contained eighty-five compounds. We identified for the first time forty-four compounds in E. japonica. Through sensory evaluation, nineteen aroma-active compounds were identified by gas chromatographyolfactometry (GC-O). Because the chemical composition can affect the interaction between plants and herbivorous insects, our results suggest that essential oils from male and female flower buds of E. japonica differently affect herbivores. Sexual differences in essential oils deserve further investigations in this plantinsect system.

    Chemical composition and potent odorants that contribute to the characteristic odor of essential oil from Alismatis Rhizoma (tubers of Alisma orientale) were investigated by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), GC-olfactometry (GC-O), aroma extract dilution analysis (AEDA) and relative flavor activity (RFA) methods. Fifty components, representing 94.5% of the total oil, were identified. In this study, we newly identified thirty-nine compounds in the oil from tubers of A. orientale. The major constituents of the essential oil were khusinol (36.2%), δ-elemene (12.4%), germacron (4.1%), alismol (3.8%), β-elemene (3.1%), and α-bisabolol (1.9%). Through sensory analysis, sixteen aroma-active compounds were detected and the key contributing aroma-active compounds were δ-elemene (woody, flavor dilution (FD)-factor = 4, RFA = 0.3) β-elemene (spicy, FD = 5, RFA = 0.7), spathulenol (green, FD = 5, RFA = 1.0), γ-eudesmol (woody, FD = 6, RFA = 1.5), and γ-cadinol (woody, FD = 5, RFA = 1.0). These compounds are thought to contribute to the odor from tubers of A. orientale. These results imply that the essential oil from the tubers of A. orientale deserve further investigations in the phytochemical and medicinal fields.

    Two sample preparation methods, namely hydrodistillation (HD) and solvent-assisted flavor evaporation (SAFE), have been used to investigate the essential oils of the aerial parts (leaves and stems) of Symplocarpus foetidus, a plant with a characteristic odor, by gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GCMS). Characteristic aroma-active compounds in the oils were detected by GC-Olfactometry (GC-O) and aroma extract dilution analysis (AEDA). From the HD method, the main compounds in the oil were found to be p-vinyl-guaiacol (15.5%), 2-pentyl-furan (13.4%), and (Z)-ligustilide (9.5%). From the SAFE method, the main compounds were 2-butoxy-ethanol (49.6%), ethyl-pentanoate (4.5%), and mesitylene (4.0%). In HD oil, the most intense aroma-active compounds were 2-pentyl-furan (flavor dilution factor (FD) = 32, odor activity value (OAV) = 57), p-vinyl-guaiacol (FD = 16, OAV = 41), and dimethyl disulfide (FD = 16, OAV = 41). In SAFE oil, the main aroma-active compounds were 2-butoxy ethanol (FD = 32, OAV = 16), and 2-methoxy thiazole (FD = 32, OAV = 25).

    The in vitro metabolism of (-)-cis- and (-)-trans-rose oxide was investigated using human liver microsomes and recombinant cytochrome P450 (P450 or CYP) enzymes for the first time. Both isomers of rose oxide were incubated with human liver microsomes, and the formation of the respective 9-oxidized metabolite were determined using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Of 11 different recombinant human P450 enzymes used, CYP2B6 and CYP2C19 were the primary enzymes catalysing the metabolism of (-)-cis- and (-)-trans-rose oxide. CYP1A2 also efficiently oxidized (-)-cis-rose oxide at the 9-position but not (-)-trans-rose oxide. α-Naphthoflavone (a selective CYP1A2 inhibitor), thioTEPA (a CYP2B6 inhibitor) and anti-CYP2B6 antibody inhibited (-)-cis-rose oxide 9-hydroxylation catalysed by human liver microsomes. On the other hand, the metabolism of (-)-trans-rose oxide was suppressed by thioTEPA and anti-CYP2B6 at a significant level in human liver microsomes. However, omeprazole (a CYP2C19 inhibitor) had no significant effects on the metabolism of both isomers of rose oxide. Using microsomal preparations from nine different human liver samples, (-)-9-hydroxy-cis- and (-)-9-hydroxy-trans-rose oxide formations correlated with (S)-mephenytoin N-demethylase activity (CYP2B6 marker activity). These results suggest that CYP2B6 plays important roles in the metabolism of (-)-cis- and (-)-trans-rose oxide in human liver microsomes. Copyright © 2015 John Wiley &amp

    The chemical composition of essential oil extracted from Uncaria Hook (“Chotoko” in Japanese), the branch with curved hook of the herbal medicine Uncaria rhynchophylla has been investigated by GC and GC-MS analyses. Eighty-four compounds, representing 90.8% of the total content was identified in oil obtained from Uncaria Hook. The main components i were (E)-cinnamaldehyde (13.4%), α-copaene (8.0%), methyl eugenol (6.8%), d-cadinene (5.3%), and curcumene (3.6%). The important key aroma-active compounds in the oil were detected by gas chromatography-olfactometry (GC-O) and aroma extract dilution analysis (AEDA), using the flavor dilution (FD) factor to express the odor potency of each compounds. Furthermore, the odor activity value (OAV) has been used as a measure of the relative contribution of each compound to the aroma of the Uncaria Hook oil. The GC-O and AEDA results showed that α-copaene (FD = 4, OAV = 4376), (E)-linalool oxide (FD = 64, OAV = 9.1), and methyl eugenol (FD = 64, OAV = 29) contributed to the woody and spicy odor of Uncaria Hook oil, whereas furfural (FD = 8, OAV = 4808) contributed to its sweet odor. These results warrant further investigations of the application of essential oil from Uncaria Hook in the phytochemical and medicinal fields.

    To clarify the structures of biotransformation products and metabolic pathways, the biotransformation of monoterpenoids, (+)- and (-)-camphorquinone (1a and b), has been investigated using Aspergillus wentii as a biocatalyst. Compound 1a was converted to (-)-(2S)-exo-hydroxycamphor (2a), (-)-(2S)-endo-hydroxycamphor (3a), (-)-(3S)-exo-hydroxycamphor (4a), (-)-(3S)-endo-hydroxycamphor (5a), and (+)-camphoric acid (6a). Compound 1b was converted to (+)-(2R)-exo-hydroxycamphor (2b), (+)-(2R)-endo-hydroxycamphor (3b), (+)-(3R)-exo-hydroxycamphor (4b), (+)-(3R)-endo-hydroxycamphor (5b), and (-)-camphoric acid (6b). Compound 1a mainly produced 2a (65.0%) with stereoselectivity, whereas 1b afforded 3b (84.3%) with high stereoselectivity. These structures were confirmed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, infrared, 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and 13C NMR spectral data. The products illustrate the marked ability of A. wentii for enzymatic oxidation and ketone reduction.

    Introduction - The Chrysanthemum genus consisting of about 200 species is mainly distributed over the Northern Hemisphere. Despite the pleasant odour of C. japonense var. debile (setonojigiku), no detailed analysis of the aroma-active compounds has been reported using sensory evaluation.
    Objectives - Using a hydrodistillation (HD) and a solvent-assisted flavour evaporation (SAFE) method to obtain the volatile oil from the leaf parts.
    Methods - To clarify odorants contributing to the characteristic aroma-active compounds, the aroma-extract dilution analysis (AEDA) method was performed through gas chromatography olfactometry (GC/O) analysis. In addition, the odour activity value (OAV) was calculated in order to determine the relative contribution of each compound to the aroma-active compounds.
    Results - A total of 42 components by HD oil were identified by GC-MS, whereas 34 components were identified in SAFE oil. Thirteen compounds were identified by GC/O analysis in HD and SAFE oils respectively.
    Conclusion - Each extraction method has its own advantages and disadvantages, and they are generally complementary to each other. On the basis of AEDA, OAV and sensory evaluations, [2.2.1] bicyclic monoterpenes (borneol, bornyl acetate and camphor) and β-caryophyllene are considered to be the main aroma-active compounds of both extraction methods.

    The chemical composition of volatile oil from agitake (Pleurotus eryngii var. ferulae) was established for the first time using gas chromatography (GC) and GC-mass spectrometry. Sixty-seven and 24 components were extracted by hydrodistillation (HD) using diethyl ether (DE) and dichloromethane (DM), respectively
    these components accounted for 80.3% and 91.8% of the total oil, respectively. Thirteen and 48 components of were extracted by the solvent-assisted flavor evaporation method (SAFE), using DE and DM, respectively, and identified
    these components accounted for 83.5% and 82.0% of the total oil, respectively. Methylsuccinimide and 2,3,7-trimethyl-2-octene were the most characteristic components by SAFE using DM. Odor evaluation of the volatile oil from agitake was also carried out using GC-olfactometry (GC-O), aroma extraction dilution analysis (AEDA), and the odor activity value (OAV). Sixteen, 8, 5 and 9 aromaactive components were identified using HD (DE and DM) and SAFE (DE and DM), respectively. The main aroma-active components extracted using HD and SAFE were 1-octen-3-ol (mushroom-like) and phenylacetaldehyde (floral), respectively. This study proved that HD and SAFE can be used as complementary extraction techniques for the complete characterization of volatile oil from agitake. © 2014 by Japan Oil Chemists' Society.

    The chemical composition of the volatile oil extracted from the aerial parts of Brassica rapa cv. f"yukina" was analyzed using GC-MS, GC-PFPD, and GC-O. A total of 50 compounds were identified. The most prominent constituents were (E)-1,5-heptadiene (40.27%), 3-methyl-3-butenenitrile (25.97%) and 3-phenylpropanenitrile (12.41%). With regard to aroma compounds, 12 compounds were identified by GC-O analysis. The main aroma-active compounds were dimethyl tetrasulfide (sulphury-cabbage, FD = 64), 3-phenylpropanenitrile (nutty, FD = 64), 3-methylindole (pungent, FD = 64), and methional (potato, FD = 32). The antioxidant activity of the aroma-active compounds of the oil was determined using an oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) assay using fluorescein as the fluorescent probe. The ORAC values were found to be 785 ± 67 trolox equivalents (μmol TE/g) for B. rapa cv. "yukina" oil. The results obtained showed that the volatile oil extracted from the aerial parts is a good dietary source of antioxidants. © 2014 by Japan Oil Chemists' Society.

    In this study, the aroma-active compounds in the dried flower of Malva sylvestris L. were extracted by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), and gas chromatography-olfactometry (GC-O) and aroma extraction dilution analysis (AEDA). A light yellow oil with a sweet odor was obtained with a percentage yield of 0.039% (w/w), and 143 volatile compounds (89.86%) were identified by GC-MS. The main compounds were hexadecanoic acid (10.1%), pentacosane (4.8%) and 6,10,14-trimethyl-2-pentadecanone (4.1%). The essential oil consisted mainly of hydrocarbons (25.40%) followed by, alcohols (18.78%), acids (16.66%), ethers (5.01%) ketones (7.28%), esters(12.43%), aldehydes (2.30%) and others (2.00%). Of these compounds, 20 were determined by GC-O and AEDA, to be odor-active (FD (favor dilution) factor ≥ 1). (3-Damascenone (FD = 9, sweet), phenylacetaldehyde (FD = 8, foral, honey-like) and (E)-p-ocimene (FD = 8, spicy) were the most intense aroma-active compounds in M. sylvestris. In order to determine the relative contribution of each of the compounds to the aroma of M. sylvestris, odor activity values (OAVs) were used. p-Damascenone had the highest odor activity values (OAV) (50700), followed by (E)-p-ionone (15444) and decanal (3510). In particular, p-damascenone had a high FD factors, and therefore, this compound was considered to be the main aroma-active components of the essential oil. On the basis of AEDA, OAVs, and sensory evaluation results, p-damascenone is estimated to be the main aroma-active compound of the essential oil. © 2013 by Japan Oil Chemists' Society.

    分子ナノカーボンは、最も活発な研究領域の一つであり、官能基を付与することで新たな物性や機能が見出されている。しかし、適用可能な分子は限定的なため、依然として反応開発が強く求められている。最近申請者は、代表的な分子ナノカーボンであるカーボンナノリング ([6]CPP) がハスモンヨトウ幼虫により位置選択的に直接水酸化されることを発見した。そこで本研究では、 [6]CPP の水酸化反応に関わる遺伝子を RNA-seq により探索・同定し、同遺伝子にコードされるタンパク質の機能を明らかにすることで基礎と応用の両面からナノカーボンバイオロジーという新分野の創出に向けた学術的な基盤を固める。
    ナノメートルサイズの単一多環芳香族炭化水素である分子ナノカーボンは、最も活発な研究領域の一つであり、官能基を付与することで新たな物性や機能が見出されている。しかし、位置選択的に直接官能基を付与できる分子ナノカーボンは限定的なため、依然として反応開発が強く求められている。最近申請者は、代表的な分子ナノカーボンであるカーボンナノリング ([6]CPP) が昆虫であるハスモンヨトウ幼虫により位置選択的に直接酸化されることを発見した。そこで本研究では、 [6]CPP の酸化反応に関わる遺伝子を RNA-seq により探索・同定し、同遺伝子にコードされるタンパク質の機能を明らかにすることを目的とした。
    まず、ハスモンヨトウ幼虫の[6]CPPに対する摂食阻害活性を評価し、摂食阻害を示さない最大濃度を見出した。続いて、見出した最大濃度の人工飼料を用いた生物変換を実施し、代謝物から有機溶媒により抽出・精製することで[6]CPP 誘導体の生産効率を算出した。また、生物変換に用いたハスモンヨトウ幼虫の中腸からRNAを抽出し、RNA-seqを実施し、[6]CPPを与えていない個体と比較して特定の遺伝子群が発現量増加したことを確認した。確認した遺伝子群の中でも、異物代謝への関与が示唆される遺伝子を標的にしたノックダウン個体をRNAi法により作出した。作出した個体を用いた生物変換を実施することで [6]CPP誘導体の生産量減少を確認した。
    研究計画著書の計画通りにおおむね研究が進んだ。特に、RNA-seqを実施したことで標的とする遺伝子候補を見出すことができた。
    標的遺伝子候補にコードされるタンパク質の機能を明らかにするため、異種タンパク質発現系による機能解析検討を行う。

    本研究の目的は有用揮発性化合物を高濃度かつ、高効率で生産する気相微生物反応プロセスを構築することである。モデル反応系として、ゲラニオールからトランス-ゲラン酸に気相変換するプロセスを作る。ゲラニオール、トランス-ゲラン酸は揮発性化合物であることに加え、水溶性が極めて低く、液相反応による物質変換は極めて困難である。微生物触媒は担体へ固定し、基質ゲラニオールは気体で供給する。そして、生産物トランス-ゲラン酸は菌体から気体として回収する。目的達成のため、高付着性と高有機溶媒耐性を併せ持つAcinetobacter sp. Tol5を用いてトランス-ゲラン酸の高生産微生物触媒を創出し、気相微生物反応プロセスを構築する。平成30年度は、トランス-ゲラン酸の高生産微生物触媒の創出を実施した。
    (1)目的生産物であるトランス-ゲラン酸および中間体であるゲラニアールに対するTol5株の耐性評価:既報より4倍以上の濃度に耐えられることが明らかとなった。
    (2)ゲラニオール/トランス-ゲラン酸変換の確認:Tol5株にはゲラニオールに対して変換能力を持たないことを明らかにした。そこで変換能力を付与するため、人工合成遺伝子を用いて導入した。得られたTol5形質転換体が機能するか、バッチの液相反応系にて確認するため、GC-MSを用いて継時的に評価したところ、Tol5形質転換体は2種の化合物を微量生産した。それらを単離・精製し解析した結果、トランス-ゲラン酸と(1R,3R,4R)-1-メチル-4-(1-メチルエテニル)-1,3-シクロヘキサンジオールであることが明らかとなった。
    (3)トランス-ゲラン酸高生産 Tol5株の創出:配列類似性解析によりTol5のゲノムから見出したホモログを欠損し、変異体を取得した。得られた変異体はトランス-ゲラン酸高生産株であることが明らかとなった。
