Pyrazole ligands: structure-affinity/activity relationships and estrogen receptor-alpha-selective agonists.
Investigations suggest that the pyrazole triols prefer to bind to ERalpha with their C(3)-phenol in the estradiol A-ring binding pocket and that binding selectivity results from differences in the interaction of thePyrazole core and C(4)-propyl group with portions of the receptor where ERalpha has a smaller residue than ERbeta.
Reinforced uncrosslinked poly (vinyl alcohol) gels produced by cyclic freezing-thawing processes: a short review
Abstract Novel methods of preparation of strong poly(vinyl alcohol) hydrogels without utilization of chemical crosslinking or reinforcing agents are reviewed. Aqueous poly (vinyl alcohol.) solutions
Discovery of Novel Allosteric Modulators of Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor Subtype 5 Reveals Chemical and Functional Diversity and In Vivo Activity in Rat Behavioral Models of Anxiolytic and
Discovery of structurally and functionally diverse allosteric modulators of mGluR5 that demonstrate in vivo efficacy in rodent models of anxiety and antipsychotic activity provide further support for the tremendous diversity of chemical scaffolds and modes of efficacy of mR5 ligands.
Discovery, synthesis, and structure-based optimization of a series of N-(tert-butyl)-2-(N-arylamido)-2-(pyridin-3-yl) acetamides (ML188) as potent noncovalent small molecule inhibitors of the severe
16-(R) is a noncovalent SARS-CoV 3CL Pro inhibitor with moderate MW and good enzyme and antiviral inhibitory activity and provides an excellent starting point for the further design and refinement of 3CLpro inhibitors that act by a non covalent mechanism of action.
Investigating Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor 5 Allosteric Modulator Cooperativity, Affinity, and Agonism: Enriching Structure-Function Studies and Structure-Activity Relationships
An operational model of allosterism that allows quantitative estimation of modulator affinity and cooperativity values is validated and can be applied to PAM and NAM potency curves in combination with maximal fold-shift data to derive reliable estimates of modulators affinities.
Discovery of N-(benzo[1,2,3]triazol-1-yl)-N-(benzyl)acetamido)phenyl) carboxamides as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) 3CLpro inhibitors: Identification of ML300 and
The X-ray structure of SARS-CoV 3CLpro bound with a ML300 analog highlights a unique induced-fit reorganization of the S2–S4 binding pockets leading to the first sub-micromolar noncovalent3CLpro inhibitors retaining a single amide bond.
Synthesis and evaluation of imidazole acetic acid inhibitors of activated thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor as novel antithrombotics.
appropriately substituted imidazole acetic acids such as 10j were found to be potent inhibitors of activated TAFI and selective versus the related carboxypeptidases CPA, CPN, and CPM but not CPB and was shown to be efficacious in a primate model of thrombosis.
Poly (vinyl alcohol) hydrogels prepared by freezing-thawing cyclic processing
Abstract A novel method of preparation of strong poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogels was developed without utilization of chemical crosslinking or other reinforcing agents. Aqueous solutions
Novel structural templates for estrogen-receptor ligands and prospects for combinatorial synthesis of estrogens.
An estrogen pharmacophore is developed that consists of a simple heterocyclic core scaffold, amenable to construction by combinatorial methods, onto which are appended 3-4 peripheral substituents that embody substructural motifs commonly found in nonsteroidal estrogens.
Functional Impact of Allosteric Agonist Activity of Selective Positive Allosteric Modulators of Metabotropic Glutamate Receptor Subtype 5 in Regulating Central Nervous System Function
It is suggested that the level of receptor expression influences the ability of mGlu5 PAMs to act as allosteric agonists in vitro and that ago-PAM activity observed in cell-based assays may not be important for in vivo efficacy.
