Monoglyceride lipase (MGL) is a serine hydrolase that hydrolyses 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) into arachidonic acid and glycerol. 2-AG is an endogenous ligand of cannabinoid receptors, involved in various physiological processes in the brain. We present here the first crystal structure of human MGL in its apo form and in complex with the covalent inhibitor(More)
1. The NHE1 isoform of the Na(+)/H(+) exchanger plays an important role in the regulation of intracellular pH and in cardiac cell injury caused by ischaemia and reperfusion. SL 59.1227 is a novel imidazolypiperidine Na(+)/H(+) antiport inhibitor which is structurally unrelated to previously described acylguanidine inhibitors such as cariporide. 2. Recovery(More)
Quinolin-2-ones bearing a heteroaryl-piperazine linked by a two carbon chain at the 3- or 4-position were synthesised and evaluated as mixed 5-HT(1B)/5-HT(2A) receptor antagonists. Potent mixed antagonists were obtained with thieno[3,2-c]pyridine derivatives. In this series, compound 2.1 (SL 65.0472) proved to be functional antagonist at both the 5-HT(2A)(More)
5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) contracts vascular smooth muscle and pharmacological and molecular biological data suggest that these effects are mediated primarily by stimulation of 5-HT(1B) and 5-HT(2A) receptor subtypes. We have studied the properties of 7-fluoro-2-oxo-4-[2-[4-(thieno[3,2-c] pyridin-4-yl) piperazin-1-yl](More)
Vaccination is at present the most efficient way of preventing influenza infections. Currently used inactivated influenza vaccines can induce virus-neutralizing antibodies that are protective against a particular influenza strain, but hamper the induction of cross-protective T-cell responses to later infections. Thus, influenza vaccines need to be updated(More)
