The rate of retinal photoisomerization in wild-type bacteriorhodopsin (wt bR) is compared with that in a number of mutants in which a positively charged (Arg(82)), a negatively charged (Asp(85) or Asp(212)), or neutral hydrogen bonding (Asp(115) or Tyr(185)) amino acid residue known to be functionally important within the retinal cavity is replaced by a(More)
Carboxylic acid imides 1–26 have been synthesized and screened for their antibacterial against gram-positive and gram-negative organisms and their antitumor activity against 60 tumor cell lines taken from nine different organs. Compounds 12, 14, and 16 were the most active and broad-spectrum antibacterial member in this study. Compound 9 showed the most(More)
A new series of 4-substituted 3-methyl-1,5-diphenyl-1H-pyrazoles 4–11 has been synthesized and evaluated for its in vitro antiviral activity and cytotoxicity against herpes simplex virus type-1 grown on Vero African green monkey kidney cells through plaque-reduction assay method using acyclovir as a positive control. The synthesis was achieved through(More)
