Amyloid diseases like Alzheimer's disease and familial amyloidosis of Finnish type (FAF) stem from endoproteolytic cleavage of a precursor protein to generate amyloidogenic peptides that accumulate as amyloid deposits in a tissue-specific manner. FAF patients deposit both 8 and 5 kDa peptides derived from mutant (D187Y/N) plasma gelsolin in the(More)
We show that 3-[4-(4-methoxyphenyl)piperazin-1-yl]piperidin-4-yl biphenyl-4-carboxylate (C10), screened out of a chemical library, selectively kills bacterial persisters that tolerate antibiotic treatment but does not affect normal antibiotic-sensitive cells. C10 led persisters to antibiotic-induced cell death by causing reversion of persisters to(More)
Abnormal accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ) is the main characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) brain and Aβ peptides are generated from proteolytic cleavages of amyloid precursor protein (APP) by β-site APP-converting enzyme 1 (BACE1) and presenilin 1 (PS1). Sphingosylphosphorylcholine (SPC), a choline-containing sphingolipid, showed suppressive effect on(More)
4-Hydroxyphenylacetic acid amides and 4-hydroxycinnamamides were synthesized and their antioxidant and neuroprotective activities were evaluated. Among the prepared compounds, 8b, and exhibited potent inhibition of lipid peroxidation in rat brain homogenates, and marked DPPH radical scavenging activities. Furthermore, and exhibited neuroprotective action(More)
Synthesis, SAR study and BACE1 inhibitory activity of (3S,4S)-4-aminopyrrolidine-3-ol derivatives (2) were described. The compound 7c exhibited more inhibition activity than 11a (IC50: 0.05μM vs 0.12μM, respectively), but the latter was more effective in cell-based assay (IC50: 1.7μM vs 40% inhibition by 7c @ 10μM) due to the relatively higher cell(More)
Nuclear factor of activated T cells 5 (NFAT5) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of various human diseases, including cancer and arthritis. However, therapeutic agents inhibiting NFAT5 activity are currently unavailable. To discover NFAT5 inhibitors, a library of >40,000 chemicals was screened for the suppression of nitric oxide, a direct target(More)
The expression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp), an ATP-dependent efflux transporter, is closely associated with the failure of chemotherapy and drug absorption. Two synthesized optically active phenylbutenoid dimers, 3S-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-4R-{(E)-3,4-dimethoxystyryl}cyclohex-1-ene (1) and 3R-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-4S-{(E)-3,4-dimethoxystyryl}cyclohex-1-ene (2),(More)
