The mouse model of laser-induced choroidal neovascularization (CNV) has been used extensively in studies of the exudative form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). This experimental in vivo model relies on laser injury to perforate Bruch's membrane, resulting in subretinal blood vessel recruitment from the choroid. By recapitulating the main features(More)
A series of 4H-1,2,4-pyridothiadiazine 1,1-dioxides and 2, 3-dihydro-4H-1,2,4-pyridothiadiazine 1,1-dioxides bearing various alkyl and aryl substituents on the 2-, 3-, and 4-positions was synthesized and tested as possible positive allosteric modulators of the (R/S)-2-amino-3-(3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazol-4-yl)propionic acid (AMPA) receptors. Many compounds(More)
The present study was undertaken to characterize the effects of BPDZ 62, an original pyridothiadiazine derivative structurally related to both diazoxide and pinacidil, on ionic and secretory events in the rat pancreatic islet cells. BPDZ 62 increased the rate of 86Rb outflow from islets perfused in the presence or absence of extracellular glucose. These(More)
The interaction with monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) and B has been shown to be sensitive to the absolute configuration of molecules. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare the effects of the racemic pirlindole (a selective and reversible MAO-A inhibitor) and its two enantiomers using biochemical techniques (in vitro and ex vivo determination of rat(More)
The quality assessment and control of traditional Chinese medicines (TCM) nowadays receives a great deal of attention worldwide and particularly in Europe with its increasing local use. Polygonum cuspidatum Siebold & Zucc. and Polygonum multiflorum Thunb. are two members of the Polygonaceae family, which are widely used as Chinese medicinal plants. The aim(More)
The present study was undertaken to characterize the effects of [3-(1',2'-dimethyl-propyl)amino-4H-pyrido[4,3-e][1,2,4]thiadiazine 1,1-dioxide] (BPDZ 44), a new pyridothiadiazine derivative, on ionic and secretory events in rat pancreatic islets. The drug increased the rate of 86Rb outflow regardless of the extracellular glucose concentration. The effects(More)
The molecular mechanisms responsible for the failure of antiangiogenic therapies and how tumors adapt to these therapies are unclear. Here, we applied transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic approaches to preclinical models and provide evidence for tumor adaptation to vascular endothelial growth factor blockade through a metabolic shift toward(More)
Cholecystokinin (CCK) is an important 'brain-gut' hormone located both in the gastrointestinal (GI) system and in the CNS. At least two different G-coupled high affinity receptors have been identified: the CCK-A and the CCK-B receptors. Although the complex biological role of CCK is, as yet, not fully understood, its connection with many different(More)
4-N-Substituted and -unsubstituted 3-alkyl- and 3-(alkylamino)-4H-pyrido[4,3-e]-1,2,4-thiadiazine 1,1-dioxides were synthesized and tested vs diazoxide and selected 3-alykl- and 3-(alkylamino)-7-chloro-4H-1,2,4-benzothiadiazine 1,1-dioxides as potassium channel openers on pancreatic and vascular tissues. Several 4-N-unsubstituted(More)
