In an effort to prepare nonsteroidal antiestrogens demonstrating greater antagonism and less intrinsic estrogenicity than those currently available, a series of 3-aroyl-2-arylbenzo[b]thiophene derivatives was synthesized. These compounds were prepared by Friedel-Crafts aroylation of appropriate O-protected 2-arylbenzo[b]thiophene nuclei with basic(More)
The design and synthesis of the dual peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR) alpha/gamma agonist (S)-2-methyl-3-[4-[2-(5-methyl-2-thiophen-2-yl-oxazol-4-yl)ethoxy]phenyl]-2-phenoxypropionic acid (2) for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and associated dyslipidemia are described. 2 possesses a potent dual hPPAR alpha/gamma agonist profile (IC(50) =(More)
To understand the species selectivity in a series of alpha-methyl-alpha-phenoxy carboxylic acid PPARalpha/gamma dual agonists (1-11), structure-based molecular modeling was carried out in the ligand binding pockets of both human and mouse PPARalpha. This study suggested that interaction of both 4-phenoxy and phenyloxazole substituents of these ligands with(More)
An improved method for the preparation of a series of oxazole-containing dual PPARalpha/gamma agonists is described. A synthetic sequence utilizing a Dakin-West reaction was devised that allows for the introduction of the oxazole ring either late in the synthetic sequence via aminomalonate-derived chemistry or in pivotal SAR intermediates derived from(More)
The plasmid pTH10 was transfered by conjugation into the Pseudomonas mallei strains. An attempt to construct the donor strains using the widely known technique employing the homology between the plasmid and chromosome due to the transposon Tn1 carried by the plasmid was unsuccessful. Among the clones resistant to bacteriophage PRD1 the variants were(More)
The comparative analysis of the antigenic spectra of Pseudomonas pseudomallei museum and subcultured strains, carried out by the method of immunoelectrophoresis, has revealed that, along with an essential increase in the virulence of P. pseudomallei for white mice and changes in the morphology of colonies, a decrease in the amount of detected(More)
