Bisquaternary caracurine V and iso-caracurine V salts as ligands for the muscle type of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors: SAR and QSAR studies.
The binding constants and QSAR results revealed that the presence of hydrogen-bond acceptor groups close to the quaternary nitrogen, is detrimental for the nicotinic binding affinity, suggesting that it is possible to develop compounds with high muscarinic allosteric potency and low or negligible affinities for (alpha1)(2)beta1gammadelta nAChR.

Neurological Involvement in Tetrahydrobiopterin Deficiency
Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) is a natural and essential cofactor for the enzymatic hydroxylation of phenylalanine (Phe) and tyrosine (Tyr), and for two tryptophan hydroxylases, three nitric oxideExpand
Hyperphenylalaninemia: From Diagnosis to Therapy
Hyperphenylalaninemia (HPA) is a biochemical condition characterized by mildly or strongly elevated concentrations of the amino acid phenylalanine (Phe) in the blood. HPA is commonly diagnosed byExpand
