1,4-Addition of benzylamine to 2(5H)-furanone followed by dialkylation of the 3-position with allylbromide gave (+/-)-4-benzyl-3,3-diallyl-2(3H)-furanone (8), which served as the intermediate for the synthesis of various N-substituted 4-amino-3,3-dipropyl-2(3H)-furanones (+/-)-9a-l. The compounds were evaluated for their capacity to potentiate or inhibit(More)
Heparan Sulfate (HS) mimetics are able to block crucial interactions of the components of the extracellular matrix in angiogenic processes and as such, represent a valuable class of original candidates for cancer therapy. Here we first report the synthesis and in vitro angiogenic inhibition properties of a conjugated, novel and rationally-designed(More)
A series of 3- and 4-(sulfo- and sulfonamidoalkyl)pyridine and piperidine-2-carboxylic acid derivatives as analogs of NMDA receptor antagonists was prepared. Affinity for the NMDA receptor was determined by binding assays using the specific radioligand [3H] (2SR,4RS)-4-(phosphonomethyl)piperidine-2-carboxylic acid (CGS-19755). The 3-alkylsulfonyl moiety was(More)
To date, the structure-activity relationship studies of heparin/heparan sulfate with their diverse binding partners such as growth factors, cytokines, chemokines, and extracellular matrix proteins have been limited yet provide early insight that specific sequences contribute to this manifold biological role. This has led to an impetus for the chemical(More)
For a long time, heparin and low molecular weight heparins have been the drugs of choice for the management of thrombosis. Discovery of the antithrombin binding domain in heparin, a critical element in the anticoagulant activity of this polysaccharide, allowed a rational approach based on medicinal carbohydrate chemistry in the design of new anticoagulants.(More)
We synthesized a novel series of 21 aryloxypropanolamine compounds characterized by N-alkyl, aralkyl, and aryl substituents. The compounds showed potent beta 3-adrenergic agonistic activities in Chinese hamster ovary cells expressing the bovine beta 3-adrenoceptors with Kact and Ki values of 4.2 +/- 3.0 nM and 459 +/- 169 nM respectively, for the ligand(More)
