Photolysis is widely used in experimental neuroscience to isolate post-synaptic receptor activation from presynaptic processes, to determine receptor mechanisms in situ, for pharmacological dissection of signaling pathways, or for photostimulation/inhibition in neural networks. We have evaluated new caged neuroactive amino acids that use(More)
Molecular labeling and detection techniques are essential to research in life science. Here, a method for glycoprotein labeling/carbohydrate detection through glycan replacement, termed glycoprotein labeling with click chemistry (GLCC), is described. In this method, a glycoprotein is first treated with specific glycosidases to remove certain sugar residues,(More)
Thiazolides are polypharmacology agents with at least three mechanisms of action against a broad spectrum of parasites, bacteria and viruses. In respiratory viruses they inhibit the replication of orthomyxoviridae and paramyxoviridae at a post-translational level. Nitazoxanide 1a, the prototype thiazolide, was originally developed as an antiparasitic agent(More)
Sialic acids are negatively charged sugar residues commonly found on the terminal positions of most glycoproteins. They play important roles in the stability and solubility of these proteins. Due to their unique positioning, they also frequently act as receptors for various ligands, and therefore are involved in numerous cell-cell and cell-pathogen(More)
