This study investigated the effect of antioxidants, i.e., carnosine and its Trolox- (water-soluble analog of alpha-tocopherol) acylated derivatives (S,S)-6-hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetramethylchroman-2-carbonyl-beta-alanyl-L-histidine (S,S-Trolox-carnosine, STC) and (R,S)-6-hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetramethylchroman-2-carbonyl-beta-alanyl-L-histidine (R,S-Trolox-carnosine,(More)
Inhibition of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1 is useful to treat several disorders including thrombosis. An inhibitor of PAI-1 (TM5275) was newly identified by an extensive study of structure-activity relationship based on a lead compound (TM5007) which was obtained through virtual screening by docking simulations. Its antithrombotic efficacy and(More)
Small molecule inhibitors of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1 have been reported to date but their clinical effects still remain unknown. The present study was undertaken to investigate the structure-activity relationships (SAR) of newly synthesized 2-acylamino-3-thiophenecarboxylic acid dimers based upon a core structure of TM5001 (1) and TM5007 (2)(More)
Novel anthranilic acid derivatives having substituted N-acyl side chains were designed and synthesized for evaluation as plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) inhibitors. Compounds with a 4-diphenylmethyl-1-piperazinyl moiety on the acyl side chains in general exhibited potent in vitro PAI-1 inhibitory activity and good pharmacokinetic profiles after(More)
Insulin resistance is a characteristic feature of type II diabetes as well as obesity. This insulin resistant state at the peripheral tissue level causes impaired glucose utilization, leading to hyperglycemia. Studies of antidiabetic agents by Takeda originated more than three decades ago when KK mice were introduced, followed by the development of a highly(More)
A series of novel 4,6-di(substituted)amino-1,2-dihydro-1,3,5-triazine derivatives designed to have ClogP of 5.1-7.5 was synthesized and evaluated for their antiseptic properties by MIC and MBC tests against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, including MRSA, VRE, and P. aeruginosa. Among these compounds, 4-alkyl-6-aralkyl derivatives having ClogP of(More)
