The mechanisms of inflammation in acne are currently subject of intense investigation. This study focused on the activation of adaptive and innate immunity in clinically early visible inflamed acne lesions and was performed in two independent patient populations. Biopsies were collected from lesional and non-lesional skin of acne patients. Using Affymetrix(More)
Vitiligo affects 1% of the worldwide population. Halting disease progression and repigmenting the lesional skin represent the two faces of therapeutic challenge in vitiligo. We performed transcriptome analysis on lesional, perilesional, and non-depigmented skin from vitiligo patients and on matched skin from healthy subjects. We found a significant increase(More)
In the course of a program aimed at discovering novel DNA-targeted antiparasitic drugs, the phenylfuran-benzimidazole unfused aromatic dication DB293 was identified as the first diamidine capable of forming stacked dimers in the DNA minor groove of GC-containing sequences. Its preferred binding sequence encompasses the tetranucleotide 5'-ATGA.5'-TCAT to(More)
Camptothecin consists of a lactone E ring adjacent to tetracyclic A-D rings of a planar chromophore, which are essential for topoisomerase I inhibition and DNA interaction. The A-D rings can be exploited to develop DNA-sequence-reading molecules. Indolizino[1,2-b]quinoline derivatives substituted with a piperidinoethyloxy side chain and an aminomethyl(More)
Camptothecin consists of a lactone E-ring adjacent to a tetracyclic A-D ring planar chromophore which are essential for topoisomerase I inhibition and DNA interaction, respectively. The A-D ring system can be exploited to develop DNA-binding molecules. Indolizino[1,2-b]quinoline derivatives substituted with a piperidinoethyloxy side chain on the A-ring and(More)
