Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) channels mediate several types of physiological responses. Despite the importance of these channels in pain detection and inflammation, little is known about how their structural components convert different types of stimuli into channel activity. To localize the activation gate of these channels, we inserted(More)
The synthesis and molecular structure of prolame, N-(3-hydroxy-1,3,5(10)-estratrien-17 beta-yl)-3-hydroxypropylamine, is described. It was characterized by ir, nmr, mass spectrometry and chemical analysis. The crystal structure of this compound was determined by single-crystal x-ray diffraction. Prolame belongs to space group P212121. Cell dimensions are: a(More)
Mutations in the I-II loop of Ca(v)3.2 channels were discovered in patients with childhood absence epilepsy. All of these mutations increased the surface expression of the channel, whereas some mutations, and in particular C456S, altered the biophysical properties of channels. Deletions around C456S were found to produce channels that opened at even more(More)
Curcumin and its derivatives have been extensively studied for their remarkable medicinal properties, and their chemical synthesis has been an important step in the optimization of well-controlled laboratory production. A family of new compounds that mimic the structure of curcumin and curcuminoids, here named retro-curcuminoids (7-14), was synthesized and(More)
C17H19O2N5 is monoclinic, P2(1)/n. Unit-cell dimensions at 293 K are a = 10.802(1), b = 24.085(2), c = 12.933(1)A, beta = 106.119(6) degrees, V = 3232.4(6)A3, Dx = 1.271 g/cm3, and Z = 8. The R value is 0.068 for 3017 observed reflections. There are two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit, denoted by A and B. In A, the dihedral angle between the(More)
