Although human retroviruses seem plausible agents of motor neuron diseases, there are only few reports of patients infected by the human immunodeficiency virus, with documented motor neuron disorder. That retroviral infections may cause motor neuron pathology by various mechanisms in animals and humans is known. Neurological symptoms potentially attributed(More)
The best of both: SIRT1/2 inhibitors were developed by combining chemical features of selisistat (SIRT1-selective inhibitor; blue) and carprofen (anti-inflammatory drug; red). The most potent compound (shown) increased acetyl-p53 and acetyl-α-tubulin levels, and induced slight apoptosis at 50 μM in U937 cells, differently from selisistat and carprofen.
A new series of aromatic ester and carbamate derivatives of 2-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-1-phenylethanol were synthesized and evaluated for their antifungal activity towards Candida albicans and non-albicans Candida species strains. The aromatic biphenyl ester derivatives 6a-c were more active than the reference compound fluconazole. 6c possesses a MIC mean values(More)
The electroencephalographic (EEG) effects of two choline pivaloyl esters, [2-(2,2-dimethylpropionyloxy)ethyl]trimethylammonium iodide (1) and [2-(2,2-dimethylpropionyloxy)ethyl]trimethylammonium 2,2-dimethylpropionate (2), were evaluated in scopolamine-treated or nucleus basalis magnocellularis (NBM) lesioned rats. In scopolamine-treated animals, Compounds(More)
