A data set consisting of twenty-two sertindole analogues and ten structurally diverse inhibitors, spanning a wide range in potency, was analyzed using CoMSiA. A homology model of HERG was constructed from the crystal structure of the open MthK potassium channel. A complementary relationship between our CoMSiA and homology models is apparent when the long(More)
Searches for the natural compounds that determine the anticarcinogenic properties of a cruciferous-vegetable diet, revealed the products of alkaloid glucobrassicin biotransformations; among these, ascorbigen, an indole-containing derivative of L-ascorbic acid, was found to be the most abundant. Study of chemical properties of ascorbigen showed that it is(More)
Two Bacillus subtilis strains isolated from the fruiting body of a basidiomycete fungus Pholiota squarrosa exhibited a broad range of antibacterial activity, including those against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus INA 00761 (MRSA) and Leuconostoc mesenteroides VKPM B-4177 resistant to glycopeptide antibiotics, as well as antifungal activity. The(More)
Studies of reactivity of antibiotic oligomycin A in various alkaline conditions showed that the compound easily undergoes retroaldol degradation in β-hydroxy ketone fragments positioned in the C7-C13 moiety of the antibiotic molecule. Depending on reaction conditions, the retroaldol fragmentation of the 8,9 or 12,13 bonds or formation of a product through(More)
A novel way of chemical modification of the macrolide antibiotic oligomycin A (1) at the side chain was developed. Mesylation of 1 with methane sulfonyl chloride in the presence of 4-dimethylaminopyridine produced 33-O-mesyl oligomycin in 56% yield. Reactions of this intermediate with sodium azide produced the key derivative 33-azido-33-deoxy-oligomycin A(More)
The antibiotic oligomycin A in the presence of K(2)CO(3) and n-Bu(4)NHSO(4) in chloroform in phase-transfer conditions afforded a novel derivative through the initial retro-aldol fragmentation of the 8,9 bond, followed by further transformation of the intermediate aldehyde. NMR, MS and quantum chemical calculations showed that the novel compound is the(More)
Ascorbigen, which occurs naturally in the human diet, and a synthetic analogue (1'-methylascorbigen), were assayed for cytotoxic and clastogenic activities in a SV40-transformed Indian Muntjac cell line (SVM), and for mutagenic activity in the Ames test using Salmonella typhimurium strains TA98 and TA100. Ascorbigen had no effect upon the clonal survival of(More)
The coupling reagent (benzotriazole-1-yl)oxy-tris(pyrrolidino)phosphonium hexafluorophosphate (PyBOP) is widely used for the synthesis of different peptides and their amides, particularly carboxamides of glycopeptide antibiotics of the vancomycin or teicoplanin groups. The amidation reaction of the carboxyl group of the seventh amino acid residue (AA7) in(More)
