Toxoplasmosis is a worldwide infection caused by the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii, which causes chorioretinitis and neurological defects in congenitally infected newborns or immunodeficient patients. The efficacy of the current treatment is limited, primarily by serious host toxicity. In recent years, research has focused on the development of new(More)
Phytopathogenic fungi responsible for post-harvest diseases on fruit and vegetables cause important economic losses. We have previously reported that harmol (1-methyl-9H-pyrido[3,4-b]indol-7-ol) is active against the causal agents of green and gray molds Penicillium digitatum and Botrytis cinerea, respectively. Here, antifungal activity of harmol was(More)
A combined experimental and computational study of solvent effects on one- and two-photon absorption spectra of three chlorinated harmine derivatives is presented. The systems studied were protonated forms of 6-chloroharmine, 8-chloroharmine and 6,8-dichloroharmine in two solvents, acetonitrile and water. For the computations, polarizable embedding density(More)
