Scavenger receptor A (SRA), as an immune regulator, has been shown to play important roles in lipid metabolism, cardiovascular diseases, and pathogen recognition. Several natural product inhibitors of SRA have been studied for their potential application in modulating SRA functions. To understand the binding mode of these inhibitors on SRA, we conducted(More)
Candidate drugs to counter intracellular polymerization of deoxygenated sickle hemoglobin (Hb S) continue to represent a promising approach to mitigating the primary cause of the pathophysiology associated with sickle cell disease (SCD). One such compound is the naturally occurring antisickling agent, 5-hydroxymethyl-2-furfural (5-HMF), which has been(More)
Scavenger receptor A (SRA) has been known as an immunosuppressive factor and therefore therapeutic inhibition of SRA may be potentially exploited for cancer immunotherapy. Our previously work suggested that rhein may act as an inhibitor of SRA in reversing immunosuppression of SRA during T cells activation. Herein, three deconstruction analogs of rhein,(More)
The fundamental pathophysiology of sickle cell disease is predicated by the polymerization of deoxygenated (T-state) sickle hemoglobin (Hb S) into fibers that distort red blood cells into the characteristic sickle shape. The crystal structure of deoxygenated Hb S (DeoxyHb S) and other studies suggest that the polymer is initiated by a primary interaction(More)
