Effects of cholinergic depletion on neuron activities in the cat visual cortex.
1. Unilateral lesions of the nucleus basalis magnocellularis (nBM), a source of cholinergic projection to the cerebral cortex, were produced by injection of kainic acid in the cat. The lesions causedExpand

Discovery of novel benzimidazoles as potent inhibitors of TIE-2 and VEGFR-2 tyrosine kinase receptors.
We herein disclose a novel chemical series of benzimidazole-ureas as inhibitors of VEGFR-2 and TIE-2 kinase receptors, both of which are implicated in angiogenesis. Structure-activity relationshipExpand
