Retinobenzoic acids. 1. Structure-activity relationships of aromatic amides with retinoidal activity.
Two types of aromatic amides, terephthalic monoanilides and (arylcarboxamido)benzoic acids, have been shown to possess potent retinoidal activities and can be classified as retinoids. TheExpand
Summary Cytokinins promote shoot development, delay leaf senescence, contribute to stress and pathogen responses, and serve as important signals to integrate growth rates throughout the plant. TheExpand
Cytokinin activity of N-phenyl-N′-1, 2,3-thiadiazol-5-ylurea (thidiazuron)
Abstract The plant growth regulator N -phenyl- N ′-1, 2, 3-thiadiazol-5-ylurea (Thidiazuron) displayed high activity in promoting the growth of cytokinin-dependent callus cultures of PhaseolusExpand
Cytokinin activity of N-phenyl-N′-(4-pyridyl)urea derivatives
Abstract We have synthesized 35 N -phenyl- N ′-(4-pyridyl)urea derivatives and tested their cytokinin activity in the tobacco callus bioassay. Among them, N -phenyl- N ′- (2-chloro-4-pyridyl)urea isExpand
A new tumor promoter from the seed oil of Jatropha curcas L., an intramolecular diester of 12-deoxy-16-hydroxyphorbol.
A new type of phorbol ester, which has a macrocyclic dicarboxylic acid diester structure, was isolated from the seed oil of Jatropha curcas L. (Euphorbiaceae). Based on the results of spectroscopicExpand
The effect of Am-80, a synthetic retinoid, on spinal cord injury-induced motor dysfunction in rats.
The present study investigated the effect of 4[(5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-5,5,8,8,-tetramethyl-2-naphthalenyl)carbamoyl] benzoic acid (Am-80), a synthetic retinoid, on spinal cord injury (SCI) in rats.Expand
Differential effects of synthetic nuclear retinoid receptor-selective retinoids on the growth of human non-small cell lung carcinoma cells.
Retinoids are promising agents for cancer chemoprevention and therapy. Nuclear retinoic acid receptors (RARs; RARalpha, -beta, and -gamma) and retinoid X receptors (RXRs; RXRalpha, -beta, and -gamma)Expand
Regulation of retinoidal actions by diazepinylbenzoic acids. Retinoid synergists which activate the RXR-RAR heterodimers.
In human HL-60 promyelocytic leukemia cells, diazepinylbenzoic acid derivatives can exhibit either antagonistic or synergistic effects on the differentiation-inducing activities of natural orExpand
Physical interaction between retinoic acid receptor and Sp1: mechanism for induction of urokinase by retinoic acid.
Induction of urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) by retinoic acid (RA) is the initial event preceding certain subsequent biological changes in vascular endothelial cells. We investigated theExpand
Synthetic retinoids: recent developments concerning structure and clinical utility.
