HIV-1 protease (HIV-PR) consists of two identical subunits that are united together through a four-stranded antiparallel beta-sheet formed of the peptide termini of each monomer. Since the active site exists only in the dimer, a strategy that is attracting more and more attention in inhibitor design and which may overcome the serious drug resistance caused(More)
CoMFA, CoMSIA and eigenvalue analysis (EVA) were performed to study the structural features of 61 diverse dibenzodioxepinone and dibenzodioxocinone analogues to probe cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) inhibitory activity. Three methods yielded statistically significant models upon assessment of cross-validation, bootstrapping, and progressive(More)
Seven new indole alkaloids, bruceollines H-N (1-7), three new quassinoids, yadanziolides T-V (10-12), and four known analogues, bruceolline E (8), bruceolline F (9), bruceine D (13), and yadanziolide B (14), were isolated from an ethanol extract of the stems of Brucea mollis. The absolute configurations of compounds 2 and 5 were determined by comparison of(More)
The tumor multidrug resistance reversal effect of NPB304, a novel taxane, was studied. MTT assay was used to determine the IC50 of chemotherapy drugs. Western blotting assay was applied to analyze the expression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp). The effect of compounds on the P-gp function and P-gp ATPase activity was determined by rhodamine 123 (Rh123)(More)
Four new phenolic diglycosides (1-4), named illoliganoside A-D, and three known glycosides (5-7), were isolated from the roots of Illicium oligandrum. The structures of the new diglycosides were determined on the basis of HRMS, NMR spectroscopic, and chemical methods. The anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic activities for 1-7 were evaluated.
Eleven prenylated C(6)-C(3) compounds, illioliganpyranone A (1), illioliganfunone A-D (2-5), and illioliganone D-I (6-11), together with five known prenylated C(6)-C(3) compounds (12-16), were isolated from roots of Illicium oligandrum. The structures of 1-11 were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including 1D and 2D NMR, HRESIMS, and CD experiments.(More)
