New tetrahydropyridinyl and piperidinyl ethylamine derivatives were designed with hypothetical mapping on pharmacophore model generated from ligand-based virtual screening. The designed compounds were synthesized, and their inhibitory activities on T-type calcium channel were assayed using FDSS and patch-clamp assay. Among them, compounds 7b and 10b showed(More)
Abnormal phosphorylation of tau has been considered as a key pathogenic mechanism inducing tau aggregation in multiple neurodegenerative disorders, collectively called tauopathies. Recent evidence showed that tau phosphorylation sites are protected with O-linked β-N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) in normal brain. In pathological condition, tau is(More)
A novel series of aryl(1,5-disubstituted pyrazol-3-yl)methyl sulfonamide derivatives was designed, synthesized, and evaluated for T-type calcium channel (α1G and α1H) inhibitory activity. We identified several compounds, 9a, 9b, 9g, and 9h that displayed good T-type channel inhibitory potency with low hERG channel and CYP450 inhibition. Among them, 9a and(More)
Glucosamine suppresses lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced upregulation of pro-inflammatory mediators both in vivo and in culture systems of mouse microglia or macrophage. In the present study, we show that the novel glucosamine derivative, 2-deoxy-2-[(o-methylbenzylidene)]-β-glucopyranoside (NK-4), significantly reduced LPS-induced production of nitric oxide(More)
