Structure-activity relationships (SARs) of 1 (SR141716) have been extensively documented, however, the conformational properties of this class have received less attention. In an attempt to better understand ligand conformations optimal for receptor recognition, we have designed and synthesized ...
Small inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinase 12 (MMP-12) have been identified with a biosensor-based screening strategy and a specifically designed fragment library. The interaction between fragments and three variants of the target and a reference protein with an active-site zinc ion was measur...
This work is the first in-depth study of osmium binding to DNA and confirms the pharmacological activity of a new class of anticancer metallodrugs. We investigated the interactions between the potential biological target DNA and four osmium(II) arene complexes, of the type [(eta 6-arene)Os(LL)Cl...
Endothelin-converting enzyme-2 (ECE-2), a member of M13 family of zinc metallopeptidases, has previously been shown to process a number of neuropeptides including those derived from prodynorphin, proenkephalin, proSAAS, and amyloid precursor protein. ECE-2, unlike ECE-1, exhibits restricted neur...
D-amino acid oxidase (DAAO) catalyzes the oxidation of D-amino acids including d-serine, a full agonist at the glycine site of the NMDA receptor. A series of benzo[ d]isoxazol-3-ol derivatives were synthesized and evaluated as DAAO inhibitors. Among them, 5-chloro-benzo[ d]isoxazol-3-ol (CBIO) p...
We synthesized 16-cyclopentadienyl tricarbonyl 99mTc 16-oxo-hexadecanoic acid (99mTc-CpTT-16-oxo-HDA, 1) and investigated its potential as a radiotracer for evaluating fatty acid metabolism in myocardium. Radiotracer 1 was synthesized in 22.6 +/- 6.3% decay-corrected yield by a double ligand tra...
Bioassay-guided fractionation of a CH2Cl2/MeOH extract of the sponge Suberea clavata using the serine protease factor XIa to detect antithrombotic activity led to the isolation of the new marine natural products, clavatadines A and B. Clavatadines A and B inhibited factor XIa with IC50's of 1.3 ...
The oxazolidinone antibacterials target the 50S subunit of prokaryotic ribosomes. To gain insight into their mechanism of action, the crystal structure of the canonical oxazolidinone, linezolid, has been determined bound to the Haloarcula marismortui 50S subunit. Linezolid binds the 50S A-site, ...
Indeno[2,1- c]quinolin-7-ones and 6 H-indeno[1,2- c]isoquinolin-5,11-diones, bearing two cationic aminoalkyl side chains, were synthesized and evaluated for DNA interaction, topoisomerases inhibition, and cytotoxicity against human cancer cell lines. They displayed strong interaction with DNA an...
3,7-Bis(dialkylamino)phenoxazinium salts were synthesized and evaluated for in vitro activities against Plasmodium falciparum, Trypanosoma cruzi, T. brucei rhodesiense, and Leishmania donovani. Notably, the compounds showed potent antiprotozoal activities, especially against P. falciparum and T....
