ANO1, a calcium-activated chloride channel, is highly expressed and amplified in human cancers and is a critical survival factor in these cancers. The ANO1 inhibitor CaCCinh-A01 decreases proliferation of ANO1-amplified cell lines; however, the mechanism of action remains elusive. We explored the mechanism behind the inhibitory effect of CaCCinh-A01 on cell(More)
Permeability and oral bioavailability of macrocyclic peptides still represent difficult challenges in drug discovery. Despite the recognized potential of macrocyclic peptides as therapeutics, their use is still restricted to extracellular targets and intravenous administration. Indeed, macrocyclic peptides generally suffer from limited proteolytic(More)
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) are commonly used for purity and solvent determinations, polymorphism studies and quantitative analysis. These methods are now simple to carry out. Furthermore, automation with robotics allows the use of DSC as a routine control. It is proposed to introduce DSC and TGA in(More)
Hydroxylation of steroids at one of the side chain terminal methyl groups, commonly linked to C-26, represents an important regulatory step established in many phyla. Discrimination between the two sites, C-26 and C-27, requires knowing the stereochemistry of the products. 26-Hydroxylation of the insect steroid hormone 20-hydroxyecdysone by a microsomal(More)
