A new series of resveratrol analogues was designed, synthesized, and demonstrated to be tubulin polymerization inhibitors. Most of these compounds exhibited antiproliferative activity and inhibited in vitro tubulin polymerization effectively at concentrations of 4.4-68.1 and 17-62 μM, respectively. Flow cytometry studies showed that compounds 7c, 7e, and 7g(More)
In response to proteasome inhibition, the transcription factor Nrf1 facilitates de novo synthesis of proteasomes by inducing proteasome subunit (PSM) genes [1,2]. Previously, we showed that activation of the p120 form of Nrf1, a membrane-bound protein in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) with the bulk of its polypeptide in the lumen, involves its(More)
The ubiquitin-proteasome system facilitates the degradation of ubiquitin-tagged proteins and performs a regulatory role in cells. Elevated proteasome activity and subunit expression are found in several cancers. However, the inherent molecular mechanisms responsible for increased proteasome function in cancers remain unclear despite the well investigated(More)
Phytochemical investigation of CHCl(3):MeOH (1:1) extract from the rhizomes of Nardostachys jatamansi led to the isolation of two new sesquiterpenoids (5 and 6), along with six known compounds (1-4, 7, and 8). The structures of two new compounds were established using IR, MS, 1D, and 2D NMR techniques. In addition, all the isolates were tested for their(More)
The first total synthesis of recently isolated diacetylene alcohols oploxyne A, oploxyne B, and their C-10 epimers was accomplished. The structure of natural oploxyne B has been revised. The key steps involved are base-induced double elimination of a carbohydrate-derived β-alkoxy chloride to generate the chiral acetylenic alcohol and Cadiot-Chodkiewicz(More)
