Tuberculosis is a major disease causing every year 1.8 million deaths worldwide and represents the leading cause of mortality resulting from a bacterial infection. Introduction in the 60's of first-line drug regimen resulted in the control of the disease and TB was perceived as defeating. However, since the progression of HIV leading to co-infection with(More)
Nucleoside phosphoesters (nucleotides) have crucial roles in a large variety of biological processes including nucleic acid biosynthesis and their corresponding analogues are extensively used as biological tools. Herein, we describe a new and efficient synthetic procedure involving polyethylene glycol (PEG) as soluble support and regioselective mono-, di-,(More)
Tuberculosis remains a major cause of mortality and morbidity, killing each year more than one million people. Although the combined use of first line antibiotics (isoniazid, rifampicin, pyrazinamide, and ethambutol) is efficient to treat most patients, the rapid emergence of multidrug resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis stresses the need for(More)
Polyphenols and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are two classes of natural compounds, which have been highlighted in epidemiological studies for their health benefits. The biological activities of those two families of metabolites on oxidation, inflammation, cancer, cardiovascular and degenerative diseases have been reported in vitro and in vivo. On(More)
A method was developed for the quantification of araCTP, CTP and dCTP in a human follicular lymphoma cell line. This method involves solid phase extraction (SPE) using a weak anion-exchanger (WAX) cartridge, a porous graphitic carbon high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) column separation, and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) detection. By using a(More)
Among retinal macular diseases, the juvenile recessive Stargardt disease and the age-related degenerative disease arise from carbonyl and oxidative stresses (COS). Both stresses originate from an accumulation of all-trans-retinal (atRAL) and are involved in bisretinoid formation by condensation of atRAL with phosphatidylethanolamine (carbonyl stress) in the(More)
The effects of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced oxidative stress in rats were determined by the generation of isoprostanoids. These are known to be robust biomarkers to evaluate nonenzymatic and free radical related oxidation. Other oxidative stress biomarkers such as hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid products (HETEs) and(More)
EthR is a mycobacterial repressor that limits the bioactivation of ethionamide, a commonly used anti-tuberculosis second-line drug. Several efforts have been deployed to identify EthR inhibitors abolishing the DNA-binding activity of the repressor. This led to the demonstration that stimulating the bioactivation of Eth through EthR inhibition could be an(More)
Phosphorylation of ddC and 3TC was efficiently performed on soluble poly(ethylene glycol) support. The corresponding 5'-monophosphate derivatives were obtained by oxidation of the support bound 5'-H-phosphonate intermediates. Then, di- and triphosphorylations were carried out using a carbonyldiimidazole activation step followed by nucleophilic substitution(More)
