Inspired by nature: Natural product isopropylstilbene was identified as an inhibitor of soluble epoxide hydrolase exhibiting antiproliferative properties. Following the natural product inspired design approach, a library of (E)-styryl-1H-benzo[d]imidazoles was synthesized and evaluated with recombinant enzyme and on several cancer cell lines.
The title compound, [Li(4)O(4)(C(12)H(8)BO)(4)(C(4)H(10)O)(4)], features a Li(4)O(4) cube. Each Li atom in the cube is additionally coordinated by a diethyl ether mol-ecule and each O atom in the cube carries a 9-oxa-10-boraanthracene residue. The crystal studied was a non-merohedral twin [twin law (-1 0 0 / 0 0 1 / 0 1 0); the contribution of the major… (More)
Sulfonamide-sensitive cells of Escherichia coli were incubated under standarized conditions with various sulfonamides and the quantity of sulfonamide uptake into the bacteria measured. The test substances reached a higher concentration inside the bacteria than in the incubation medium, the degree of accumulation varying for the individual substances despite… (More)
Bacterial resistance mediated by metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs) is a major problem for the treatment of infections. An MBL inhibitor could restore the potency of β-lactam antibiotics. Fragment-based design might deliver valuable starting points for the discovery of novel MBL inhibitors. In this study, we chose an in silico approach to search for fragments able… (More)
