The interaction of 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) with calf thymus DNA was studied in darkness at 25 degrees C and pH 7.4. The enthalpy curve for 8-MOP-DNA interaction was obtained by isothermal titration calorimetry and showed a two-step process for the interaction. According to the spectrophotometric data, it was suggested that some compaction may occur in the(More)
The new 1,10-phenanthroline containing 1:1 proton-transfer compound LH(2), [pyda.H(2)](2+)[phendc](2-), was synthesized from the reaction of 2,6-pyridinediamine, pyda, and 1,10-phenanthroline-2,9-dicarboxylic acid, phendc.H(2), and characterized by elemental analysis, ES-Ms, IR, (1)H, (13)C NMR, and UV/vis spectroscopies. Subsequently, the first example of(More)
In this novel, the iron(III)-PVC membrane sensor was investigated based on a new 1,1'-(iminobis(methan-1-yl-1-ylidene))dinaphthalen-2-ol (IBMYD) synthetic ionophore as a suitable carrier. The best performance was observed for the membrane composition including 33.0% PVC, 65.0% TEHP, 1.0% NaTPB and 1.0% ionophore. The electrode displayed a linear potential(More)
OBJECTIVE Methoxsalen is a natural photoactive compound which is found in many seed plants. A number of epidermal proliferative disorders can be treated by methoxsalen along with long wave ultraviolet A (UVA). MATERIALS AND METHODS In an experimental study, we aimed to demonstrate the effect of methoxsalen, UVA and their combination on oogenesis Balb/C(More)
Two tri-aza macrocycles as diamide derivatives of macrocyclic compounds possess a hydrophilic cavity surrounded by hydrophobic ring, which enables them to diffuse cell membrane and interfere with different living systems. In this study, we comparatively evaluated cytotoxicity effects of tri-aza dibenzo sulfoxide (TSD) and dibenzo sulfide (TTS) macrocyclic(More)
4,5-Diarylimidazoles labeled with carbon-14 in the 5-position of the imidazole ring were prepared as a part of three-step sequence from 2-hydroxy-1-(4-(methylthio)phenyl)-2-phenyl[1-(14) C]ethanone as a key synthetic intermediate which has been synthesized from potassium [(14) C]cyanide.
The chemiluminescence characteristics of seven different cumarin derivatives were studied in detail. The fluorescence and chemiluminescence spectra were compared; all cumarins used were found to act as blue fluorescers. The intensity and kinetic parameters for the chemiluminescent systems were evaluated from computer fitting of the resulting intensity-time(More)
Metallo-beta-lactamase enzymes make bacteria resistant to a broad range of commonly used beta-lactam antibiotics. Several thiol derivatives of L-amino acids have been shown their inhibitory effects against the metallo-β-lactamase IMP-1. In this study, (2-mercaptoacetyl)-L-tryptophan as a new inhibitor of metallo-β-lactamases labeled with carbon-14 in the(More)
An aqueous medium containing catalytic amounts of a tertiary amine was employed to direct the chemoselectivity of the reaction of aldehydes with 1a. With DBU, 2 was formed at room temperature as a rare exemplary of Baylis-Hillman reactions in heterocyclic enones. DABCO alternated the pathway toward an aldol reaction to form syn/anti mixtures of 3 with the(More)
