Thioredoxin plays a crucial role in a wide number of physiological processes, which span from reduction of nucleotides to deoxyriboucleotides to the detoxification from xenobiotics, oxidants and radicals. The redox function of Thioredoxin is critically dependent on the enzyme Thioredoxin NADPH Reductase (TrxR). In view of its indirect involvement in the(More)
A series of new aculeatin-like analogues were synthesized in two steps by combining two sets of building blocks. Many compounds showed inhibitory activities in vitro against Plasmodium falciparum and have helped to gain more insight into structure-activity relationships around the spirocyclohexadienone pharmacophoric scaffold. Plasmodium falciparum(More)
