Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) is a rare autosomal dominant genetic disease that is caused by a silent mutation of the LMNA gene encoding lamins A and C (lamin A/C). The G608G mutation generates a more accessible splicing donor site than does WT and produces an alternatively spliced product of LMNA called progerin, which is also expressed in(More)
In order to identify the inhibitors of hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication with a novel scaffold via a mechanistically unbiased approach, we screened our in-house library composed of ∼6000 compounds with various chemical structures by using the renilla luciferase-linked genotype 2a reporter virus, and we identified a series of compounds containing an indole(More)
Booster of pluripotency: RSC133, a new synthetic derivative of indoleacrylic acid/indolepropionic acid, exhibits dual activity by inhibiting histone deacetylase and DNA methyltransferase. Furthermore it potently improves the reprogramming of human somatic cells into a pluripotent state and aids the growth and maintenance of human pluripotent stem cells(More)
A series of (E)-phenoxyacrylic amide derivatives were synthesized and evaluated as hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) 1α inhibitors. The present structure-activity relationship study on this series identified the morpholinoethyl containing ester 4p as a potent inhibitor of HIF-1α under hypoxic conditions (IC50=0.12 μM in a cell-based HRE reporter assay) in(More)
A six-day static-renewal toxicity test was performed to determine the influences of cadmium on the development of embryos of soldatov's catfish (Silurus soldatovi). The median lethal concentration (LC50) value and median effective concentration (EC50, i.e., the total adverse effects, including developmental defects and mortality) were calculated to be 2740(More)
We report that phytosphingosine, a sphingolipid found in many organisms and implicated in cellular signaling, promotes megakaryocytic differentiation of myeloid leukemia cells. Specifically, phytosphingosine induced several hallmark changes associated with megakaryopoiesis from K562 and HEL cells including cell cycle arrest, cell size increase and(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is a major worldwide problem that has emerged as one of the most significant diseases affecting humans. There are currently no vaccines or efficient therapies without side effects, despite today's advanced medical technology. Currently, the common therapy for most patients (i.e. genotype 1) is combination of HCV-specific(More)
