Embelin (2,5-dihydroxy-3-undecyl-1,4-benzoquinone, EB) has been shown to inhibit the X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein and various inflammatory pathways. Although different molecular mechanisms have been described for the potent antitumor activities of EB, its potential effect on inflammatory and immune-mediated diseases such as multiple sclerosis(More)
ZSTK474 [2-(2-difluoromethylbenzimidazol-1-yl)-4,6-dimorpholino-1,3,5-triazine] is a novel phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitor that exhibits potent antitumor effects. Recent studies have shown that ZSTK474 is also with anti-inflammatory properties in collagen-induced arthritis. However, the effects of ZSTK474 on dendritic cells and inflammatory(More)
Accumulation of amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) is a pathological hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). We have previously demonstrated that electrophysiological and neurotoxic effects of Aβ and human amylin are expressed via the amylin receptor. Recently, pramlintide, a synthetic analog of amylin, has been reported to improve cognitive function in transgenic AD(More)
