Discovery of N-hydroxyindole-based inhibitors of human lactate dehydrogenase isoform A (LDH-A) as starvation agents against cancer cells.
Highly invasive tumor cells are characterized by a metabolic switch, known as the Warburg effect, from "normal" oxidative phosphorylation to increased glycolysis even under sufficiently oxygenatedExpand

Proteomic analysis of saliva: a unique tool to distinguish primary Sjögren's syndrome from secondary Sjögren's syndrome and other sicca syndromes
IntroductionA growing interest has arisen in salivary proteomics as a tool for the identification of biomarkers for primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS). Nonetheless, only a limited number of preclinicalExpand

Isolation of putative benzodiazepine receptors from rat brain membranes by affinity chromatography.
The benzodiazepine receptor from rat brain was solubilised and purified 5200-fold by affinity chromatography. The affinity column contained an immobilized benzodiazepine (delorazepam) and biospecificExpand

Changes in peripheral benzodiazepine receptors in patients with panic disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Peripheral benzodiazepine (BDZ) receptors were investigated through the binding of the specific ligand 3H-PK-11195 to platelet membranes, in 17 patients suffering from panic disorder (PD) and in 16Expand

Proteome analysis of whole saliva: a new tool for rheumatic diseases--the example of Sjögren's syndrome.
Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) is a systemic disease that affects salivary glands directly, and is therefore expected to influence the composition of human whole saliva (WS) fluid. The aim of this studyExpand
