  Jokichi Takamine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
In 1894 Takamine emigrated to the United States.
He established his own research laboratory in New York City, but licensed the commercial production of Takadiastase.
In 1901 he isolated and purified the hormone adrenaline from animal glands, becoming the first to accomplish this for a glandular hormone.

Using a stop watch, which several trials indicated to be a necessity, initial viscosity was determined.
Takadiastase (1/2% solution) in 4 drops was added, mixed immediately and readings were taken at convenient intervals as frequently as possible.
Replacing Takadiastase with Rhozyme H-39 (1/2% solution), the identical procedure was undertaken for this enzyme.

It is one of the enzymes capable of being classed with pepsin and pancreatin of the digestive group, Its especial function is the conversion of the starch molecule into a sugar molecule.
Takadiastase is a form of diastase which results from the growth, development, and nutrition of a distinct microscopic fungus known as the eurotium oryxae.
Administration—Two grains of Takadiastase is the usual dose, although five grains is often given.

Takadiastase was developed by a Japanese scientist, Takamine Jokichi, in 1894 on the basis of traditional rice-yeast cultivation techniques.
In warm conditions, the spores germinate and grow and after sufficient enzymes have been produced these are drawn off with water.Alcohol is added and the precipitate is dried at low temperature.
The resulting powder is used as a digestive for therapeutic purposes and in the manufacture of various kinds of food and animal feed.Two of the enzymes in Takadiastase, Alpha-amylase-amylase and ribonuclease Tl and T2,are used in refined and purified form as important reagents in bio-chemical studies.

And for no disturbance of functions are drugs taken so indiscriminately as for disorder of the digestion.
The amount of money spent on pepsin, pancreatin, takadiastase, charcoal and so-called intestinal disinfectants in this country could establish a fund, which, if wisely used for popular education, would in one generation do more to overcome indigestion than all the drugs in the world.
To many it will come as a decided shock that there is scarcely a particle of evidence to show that any of the substances enumerated above are of any value.

The impetus was efforts by Jokichi Takamine, a chemical scientist and close friend of Baekeland, to procure the Japanese patent rights to Bakelite for the president of a certain pharmaceutical manufacturing company.
Takamine is also known for isolating and manufacturing Takadiastase and adrenaline.
This was the time at the beginning of the 20th century when electricity was first being put to practical use powering things like lights and telephones.

The family moved to Japan, and Takamine continued to work for the department of agriculture and commerce as chief of the division of chemistry until 1887.
At that time he formed his own company, the Tokyo Artificial Fertilizer Company, where he later isolated a powerful starch-digesting enzyme, Takadiastase, from a fungus.
In 1901 he isolated and purified the hormone adrenalin in his laboratory, becoming the first person to accomplish this for a glandular hormone.

 Patent 4402990: Steviolmonoside analogs
Tanaka, et al., have shown in Chem Pharm Bull 25, 2466-7 (1977) that stevioside undergoes selective enzymatic conversion to steviol-13,19-bioside (II) in the presence of Takadiastase Y. This material can be converted to steviolmonoside (III) by treating with base.
More particularly, the enzyme cleavage is carried out by dissolving in a liquid medium and incubating the stevioside with from about 0.25 to 5.0 times its weight of the enzyme takadiastase Y or its equivalent.
A 4.604 g sample of the recrystallized stevioside was incubated for 8 days with 4.605 g Takadiastase Y (Sanzyme R) in 460 ml of a pH 4.05 broth made up of 61 volume % 0.1 M citric acid and 39 volume % 0.2 M Na.sub.2 HPO.sub.4 at 37.degree.

 Inhibition of adenosine deaminase from several sources by deaza derivatives of adenosine and EHNA.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Inhibition of adenosine deaminase from several sources by deaza derivatives of adenosine and EHNA.Deaza analogues of adenosine and EHNA were tested as inhibitors of the enzyme adenosine deaminase (ADA) obtained from several sources including human erythrocytes, calf intestine, Saccaromices cerevisiae, Escherichia coli and Takadiastase.
Among the ribofuranosyl derivatives, 1-deazaadenosine is the best inhibitor, its Ki ranging between 3.5 x 10(-7) and 4 x 10(-5) M for ADA from erythrocytes and Takadiastase respectively.
Only ADA from erythrocytes and calf intestine bind EHNA and some of deazaEHNA analogues; 3-deazaEHNA behaves very similarly to EHNA both in affinity and slow binding mechanism, whereas 1-deazaEHNA, though less potent, is a good inhibitor.

However, the scores obtained on organoleptic testing indicated that all the ARFs were highly acceptable throughout the storage period of 30 days; scores were more than 80% of the maximum for taste and smell.
Trials were carried out to study the effect of the concentration of solids (15%, 20%, and 25% weight per volume) on viscosity and the comparative thinning on addition of oven-dried ARF, toasted ARF, and pure enzyme takadiastase to the slurries.
Since the toasted ARF was found to have a longer shelf life, which is a desired characteristic for any processed food and makes the product more readily acceptable, the viscosity measurements were carried out to study the comparative catalytic activity of oven dried ARF, toasted ARF, and pure enzyme takadiastase.

The experimental approach that was used involved cleavage of the polynucleotide chain into small fragments, identification of the small fragments, and then reconstruction of the original nucleotide sequence by determining the order in which the small fragments occurred in the RNA molecule.
Pancreatic ribonuclease and takadiastase ribonuclease T1 were used, separately, to cleave the RNA chain and give two different sets of small fragments.
The small fragments were identified and their nucleotide sequences were determined.

Takahashi, a Tokyo native, said she enjoys her retirement life here and helps visitors from all over the United States who want to know about Takamine, who is best known for isolating takadiastase, a digestive enzyme, and the chemical adrenalin.
Takamine became the first president of the club, where famed bacteriologist Hideyo Noguchi, a fellow at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, was frequently seen playing "shogi" (Japanese chess) until his wife Mary came to pick him up.
The exhibition also features various memorabilia, including a letter to Takamine from the legendary inventor Thomas Edison, and bottles of takadiastase, which helped Takamine become the first president of Sankyo Co., one of Japan's largest pharmaceutical companies.

The enzyme known as Taka-diastase, either in pure powder or mixed with starch, causes the stigmas of Torenia and Catalpa to remain closed for 3 to 10 hours, but nearly all the stigmas finally open.
The Takadiastase, with its enzyme destroyed by hot water, then evaporated, powdered, mixed with starch, and placed on stigmas, keeps the stigmas closed a shorter time than does the mixture of the normal Taka-diastase and starch.
Casein alone does not affect the closure of the stigmas of Torenia, nor does a mixture of peptone and starch.
