Described herein is design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of novel series of 2-aryl-7-(3',4'-dialkoxyphenyl)-pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines acting as inhibitors of type 4 phosphodiesterase (PDE4) which is known as a good target for the treatment of asthma and COPD. For this purpose, structure optimization was conducted with the aid of structure-based(More)
Exposure to nitrosamines may be the occupational risk factor for liver cirrhosis. 2-(Allylthio)pyrazine, a chemopreventive agent, inhibits CYP2E1 and induces phase II enzymes. We examined the effects of 2-(allylthio)pyrazine on hepatic fibrosis, a prepathologic state of cirrhosis, and on the expression of transforming growth factor-beta1 induced by(More)
Addition of hexobarbital (1 mM) to the culture medium of rat hepatocytes protected against the rapid decline in the level of cytochrome P-450 and the activities of various drug metabolizing enzymes. While the hepatocytes cultured for 72 hr without hexobarbital had only 30% of their original level of cytochrome P-450, the cells maintained with hexobarbital(More)
7,12-Dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) produced a dose-related suppression of in vitro polyclonal antibody response to lipopolysaccharide in mouse splenocytes co-cultured with rat hepatocytes. Addition of alpha-naphthoflavone (ANF), the cytochrome P-450 inhibitor, to the coculture reversed the DMBA-induced immunosuppression. The amount of [3H]DMBA bound to(More)
