Inhibition of 5 alpha-reductase and aromatase by the ellagitannins oenothein A and oenothein B from Epilobium species.
Species of the genus Epilobium (Onagraceae) have been investigated for their activity against 5 alpha-reductase and aromatase, two enzymes which are involved in the aetiology of benign prostaticExpand

Allosteric activation of the protein kinase PDK1 with low molecular weight compounds
Organisms rely heavily on protein phosphorylation to transduce intracellular signals. The phosphorylation of a protein often induces conformational changes, which are responsible for triggeringExpand

A new class of nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitors: design and synthesis of chromone and xanthone derivatives and inhibition of the P450 enzymes aromatase and 17 alpha-hydroxylase/C17,20-lyase.
Aromatase (P450arom) is a target of pharmacological interest for the treatment of breast cancer. In this paper, we report the design, synthesis, and in vitro biological evaluation of a series of newExpand

Discovery of antagonists of PqsR, a key player in 2-alkyl-4-quinolone-dependent quorum sensing in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
The pqs quorum sensing communication system of Pseudomonas aeruginosa controls virulence factor production and is involved in biofilm formation, therefore playing an important role for pathogenicity.Expand

Biosynthesis of 2‐Alkyl‐4(1H)‐Quinolones in Pseudomonas aeruginosa: Potential for Therapeutic Interference with Pathogenicity
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a ubiquitous Gram-negative bacterium capable of surviving in a broad range of natural environments and known to be involved in infectious diseases of various hosts. InExpand

The IGF2 mRNA binding protein p62/IGF2BP2-2 induces fatty acid elongation as a critical feature of steatosis[S]
Liver-specific overexpression of the insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) mRNA binding protein p62/IGF2BP2-2 induces a fatty liver, which highly expresses IGF2. Because IGF2 expression is elevated inExpand

Rule–based regulatory and metabolic model for Quorum sensing in P. aeruginosa
We modeled the las, rhl, and pqs Quorum sensing systems by a multi–level logical approach to analyze how enzyme inhibitors and receptor antagonists effect the formation of autoinducers and virulence factors. Expand

Effects of novel 17α-hydroxylase/C17, 20-lyase (P450 17, CYP 17) inhibitors on androgen biosynthesis in vitro and in vivo
Aiming at the development of new drugs for the treatment of prostate cancer, the effects of steroidal compounds and one non-steroidal substance on androgen biosynthesis were evaluated in vitro and inExpand

Development of a test system for inhibitors of human aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2): screening in fission yeast and evaluation of selectivity in V79 cells
Aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2) is a mitochondrial cytochrome P450 enzyme catalyzing the last steps of aldosterone production in the adrenal cortex. A new pharmacological approach for the treatment ofExpand
