The goal of the present paper is to establish and validate the link between cancer diagnosis and therapy by microRNAs detection. The induction in vitro of some specific microRNAs after treatment with MDR ligands has been outlined. Starting from the results obtained by in vitro induction of MDCK and MDCK-MDR1 cells treated by a MDR1 ligand, a new scenario in(More)
Some studies, suggesting the involvement of I(2)-imidazoline binding sites (I(2)-IBS) in morphine analgesia modulation, prompted us to examine on mice antinociceptive assays the effect produced by 1 (phenyzoline), that in view of its high I(2)-IBS affinity and high I(2)-IBS selectivity with regard to I(1)-IBS, alpha(2)-adrenoreceptors and mu-opioid(More)
Interest in the inhibitors of type-B monoamine oxidase has grown in recent years, due to the evidence for multiple roles of one such agent (selegiline) in the pharmacological management of neurodegenerative disorders. A set of 130 reversible and selective inhibitors of MAO-B (including tetrazole, oxadiazolone, and oxadiazinone derivatives) were taken from(More)
The title compound, C24H25NO3·2CH3OH, which crystallized as a methanol disolvate, has applications as a PET radiotracer in the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. The dihedral angle between the biphenyl rings is 8.2 (2)° and the heterocyclic ring adopts a half-chair conformation with the N atom adopting a pyramidal geometry (bond-angle sum = 327.6°).(More)
A new series of 6-substituted 2-aminobenzothiazole derivatives were synthesized and screened in vitro as potential antimicrobials. Almost all the compounds showed antifungal activity. In particular, compounds 1n,o, designed on the basis of molecular modeling studies, were the best of the series, showing MIC values of 4-8 μg/mL against Candida albicans,(More)
Alpidem analogues containing a GABA (1-3) or glycine (4-6) moiety were synthesized and their interaction with the GABA/benzodiazepine receptor complex at central (CBR) and peripheral (PBR) level was evaluated. In particular, their ability to modulate the specific binding of [3H]-GABA to washed membrane preparations from the rat cerebral cortex, as well as(More)
The work describes the development of novel software supporting synchronous distant collaboration between scientists involved in drug discovery and development projects. The program allows to visualize and share data as well as to interact in real time using standard intranets and Internet resources. Direct visualization of 2D and 3D molecular structures is(More)
Based on the results obtained with different automated computational approaches as applied to the study of eleven high-affinity agonists of the neuronal nicotine acetylcholine receptor (nAChR), belonging to different chemical classes, new relevant features were detected which complement the existing pharmacophores. Convergent results from DISCO (Distance(More)
