Oxidative activation of antioxidant defence.
Heat shock protein 90 controls HIV-1 reactivation from latency
It is reported that specific inhibitors of Hsp90 such as 17-(N-allylamino)-17-demethoxygeldanamycin and AUY922 prevent HIV-1 reactivation in CD4+ T cells and, in combination with a PKC-ϑ inhibitor in phase II clinical trial, almost completely suppressed HIV- 1 reactivation at 15 nM with no cytotoxicity.
The synthetic challenge of diazonamide A, a macrocyclic indole bis-oxazole marine natural product.
This review details the synthetic studies on this fascinating natural product starting from early studies on the original structure, through the synthesis of the originally proposed structure and the subsequent structural revision, to the eventual successful syntheses of the natural product itself.
Development of indolequinone mechanism-based inhibitors of NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1): NQO1 inhibition and growth inhibitory activity in human pancreatic MIA PaCa-2 cancer cells.
It is demonstrated that NQO1 inhibitory activity can be dissociated from growth inhibitoryActivity and suggested additional or alternative targets to NQo1 that are responsible for the growth inhibitor activity of this series of indolequinones in human pancreatic cancer.
Indolequinone inhibitors of NRH:quinone oxidoreductase 2. Characterization of the mechanism of inhibition in both cell-free and cellular systems.
A series of indolequinones are described as efficient mechanism-based inhibitors of NRH:quinone oxidoreductase 2 (NQO2) for use either in cellular or cell-free systems and represent the first mechanism- based inhibitors of NQO1 to be characterized in cellular systems.
Rhodium carbene routes to oxazoles and thiazoles. Catalyst effects in the synthesis of oxazole and thiazole carboxylates, phosphonates, and sulfones.
Alpha-diazo-beta-ketosulfones behave similarly and give 5-sulfonyloxazoles upon dirhodium tetrakis(heptafluorobutyramide) catalyzed reaction with carboxamides, which gives the corresponding thiazole-5-carboxylates, -phosphonates, and -sulfones.
