The bromo and extra C-terminal domain (BET) family of bromodomains are involved in binding epigenetic marks on histone proteins, more specifically acetylated lysine residues. This paper describes the discovery and structure-activity relationships (SAR) of potent benzodiazepine inhibitors that disrupt the function of the BET family of bromodomains (BRD2,(More)
An apparatus which has been widely used in rats for measuring swelling of the foot induced locally by inflammatory agents has been adapted to measure rapidly, accurately and objectively, the growth of tumour cells transplanted to the foot, and the reactions of the normal tissues (tumour bed) to tumour growth. General features on the apparatus and the(More)
Structure-based drug design was exploited in the synthesis of 3-(6-chloronaphth-2-ylsulfonyl)aminopyrrolidin-2-one-based factor Xa (fXa) inhibitors, incorporating an alanylamide P4 group with acyclic tertiary amide termini. Optimized hydrophobic contacts of one amide substituent in P4 were complemented by hydrophobicity-modulating features in the second,(More)
Subdermal inoculation of the foot of the rat with lethally irradiated (LI) Walker tumour (W256) cells, mixed with viable (V) W256 cells, decreased the latent period for initiation of allogeneic tumour growth without significantly affecting its rate. This Révész effect decreased with increase in the number of inoculated V cells, and with decrease in age of(More)
Impregnation of the vasculature with ink was used to study microvascular changes induced in rats by liquid (ascites) and solid growth of W256 and Y-P388 tumour cells. Ascites fluid produced by both tumours was heavily blood-stained; the deep red colour of solid tumour deposits was similarly due to the presence of free blood. In both types of tumour growth(More)
PURPOSE The National Health Service in Scotland published a best practice framework to support occupational therapists and physiotherapists to deliver effective services for children with developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD); however, adherence is variable. To highlight areas for development, this study compared the care pathway within a paediatric(More)
Heteroalicyclic carboxamidines were synthesised and evaluated as inhibitors of nitric oxide synthases. (2R)-2-Pyrrolidinecarboxamidine, in particular, was shown to be a highly potent in vitro (IC(50)=0.12 μM) and selective iNOS inhibitor (>100-fold vs both eNOS and nNOS), with probable binding to the key anchoring glutamate residue and co-ordination to the(More)
