New cyclic peptide assemblies with hydrophobic cavities: the structural and thermodynamic basis of a new class of peptide nanotubes.
A new class of self-assembling peptides based on cyclic peptides made of alternating 3-aminocyclohexanecarboxylic acid (gamma-Acc) and alpha-amino acids is described. The studied cylindricalExpand

Inhibition of calcium entry induced by cularines and isocrasifoline in uterine smooth muscle.
The effects of nifedipine, papaverine and four benzylisoquinoline alkaloids (cularine, cularidine, celtisine and isocrasifoline) were studied in isolated rat uterus in order to clarify the mechanismExpand
