Hepatocyte injury is a common pathological effect of cisplatin (CDDP) in various solid tumor therapies. Thus, strategies for minimizing CDDP toxicity are of great clinical interest. N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a known antioxidant, is often used as an antidote for acetaminophen overdose in the clinic due to its ability to increase the levels of glutathione(More)
A series of novel piperazine or piperidine-containing non-covalent peptidyl derivatives possessing a neopentyl-asparagine residue were designed, synthesized and evaluated as proteasome inhibitors. All target compounds were screened for their 20S proteasome chymotrypsin-like inhibitory activities, and 15 ones displayed more potent activities than carfilzomib(More)
In this study, a series of novel pyridine and pyrimidine-containing derivatives were designed, synthesized and biologically evaluated for their c-Met inhibitory activities. In the biological evaluation, half of the target compounds exhibited moderate to potent c-Met inhibitory activities. Among which, it is noteworthy that compounds 13d not only showed most(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of apigenin on the protein expression levels of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) in liver tissues of rats with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). METHODS The NASH rat model was established by feeding of a high-fat diet. Unmodeled rats served as the normal controls. The modeled rats were divided into(More)
A series of novel non-covalent piperidine-containing dipeptidyl derivatives were designed, synthesized and evaluated as proteasome inhibitors. All target compounds were tested for their proteasome chymotrypsin-like inhibitory activities, and selected derivatives were evaluated for the anti-proliferation activities against two multiple myeloma (MM) cell(More)
