Interactions between metal ions and amino acids are common both in solution and in the gas phase. Here, the effect of metal ions and water on the structure of glycine is examined. The effect of metal ions (Li+, Na+, K+, Mg2+, Ca2+, Ni2+, Cu2+, and Zn2+) and water on structures of Gly.Mn+(H2O)m and GlyZwitt.Mn+(H2O)m (m = 0, 2, 5) complexes have been(More)
Rheological, haemostatic, endothelial and platelet abnormalities appear to play a role in the thrombotic complications of hypertension. This prothrombotic/hypercoagulable state in hypertension may contribute to the increased risk and severity of target organ damage. It can be induced by the activated renin-angiotensin system (RAS), with abnormalities in(More)
Methods of quantum chemistry have been applied to double-charged complexes involving the transition metals Ni(2+), Cu(2+) and Zn(2+) with the aromatic amino acids (AAA) phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan. The effect of hydration on the relative stability and geometry of the individual species studied has been evaluated within the supermolecule approach.(More)
The molecular structure of trimeric units (D-E-F and F-G-H) and the pentamer D-E-F-G-H of heparin (sodium salts and their anionic forms) was studied using the B3LYP/6-31G(d) method. The equilibrium structure of the sodium salts of the trimers and pentamer investigated in the isolated state was determined by multidentate coordination of the sodium cations(More)
The methods of theoretical chemistry have been used to elucidate the molecular properties of the substituted imidazoline and oxazoline structures, a class of potent agonists and antagonists of imidazoline receptors. The geometries of various tautomers and isomers of 2-[2,6-dichlorophenylimino]imidazolidine (clonidine),(More)
Interactions between metal ions and amino acids are common both in solution and in the gas phase. The effect of metal ions and water on the structure of L-arginine is examined. The effects of metal ions (Li(+), Na(+), K(+), Mg(2+), Ca(2+), Ni(2+), Cu(2+), and Zn(2+)) and water on structures of Arg x M(H2O)m , m = 0, 1 complexes have been determined(More)
The molecular structure of four dimeric units (D-E, E-F, F-G, and G-H) of the DEFGH structural unit of heparin, their anionic forms, and their sodium salts have been studied using the B3LYP/6-31+G(d) method. The optimized geometries indicate that the most stable structure of these dimeric units in neutral state is stabilized via "bifurcated" sodium bonds.(More)
4-Sulfamoyl-N-(3-morpholinopropyl)benzamide (I-1), N-(3-morpholinopropyl)benzene-1,4-disulfonamide (I-2) and N-(4-diethylaminoethoxybenzyl)benzene-1,4-bis(sulfonamide (I-3), were prepared and assayed as inhibitors of four carbonic anhydrase (CA) isoenzymes hCA I, hCA II, hCA IV and hCA XII. These compounds exhibited nanomolar half maximal inhibitory(More)
OBJECTIVE Endothelial abnormalities appear to play a role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerotic/atherothrombotic complications of hypertension. They may contribute to the increased risk and severity of target organ damage. The aim of the study was to investigate the endothelial markers in patients at the early stages of mild-to-moderate untreated(More)
