To develop more potent therapeutic agents with therapeutic efficacy for ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, we linked an antiinflammatory moiety (1,3-dioxane derivative) to the key pharmacophoric moiety of melatonin. We hypothesized that the resulting new indole derivatives might induce a synergistic protection against oxidative damage associated with I/R(More)
We describe a novel class of β-carboline alkaloid-peptide conjugates that possess both free radical scavenging and thrombolytic activity. These conjugates demonstrate therapeutic efficacy in a rat arterial thrombosis assay, as well as free radical scavenging capacity as evaluated in a PC12 cell survival assay. Our results indicate that β-carboline(More)
We have synthesized a series of new β-carboline-tripeptide conjugates, and examined their anti-inflammatory properties in a mouse model of xylene-induced ear edema. The analgesic capacity of these compounds was further evaluated in a rodent tail flick assay. Our results indicate that β-carboline conjugate 4a manifests potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic(More)
Renal ischemia/reperfusion is a common cause of acute renal failure. Glycine is an effective anti-inflammatory, cytoprotective agent and is reported to have a beneficial effect against ischemia/reperfusion injury in various organs. Previous research notes that free radicals and inflammatory leukocytes both play important roles in the pathogenesis of renal(More)
