The absorption and disposition of rizatriptan (MK-0462, Maxalt(TM)), a selective 5-HT(1B/1D) receptor agonist used in the treatment of migraine headaches, was investigated in humans. In a two-period, single i.v. (3 mg, 30-min infusion), and single oral (10 mg) dose study with [(14)C]rizatriptan in six healthy human males, total recovery of radioactivity was(More)
Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II molecules displayed clustered patterns at the surfaces of T (HUT-102B2) and B (JY) lymphoma cells characterized by interreceptor distances in the micrometer range as detected by scanning force microscopy of immunogold-labeled antigens. Electron microscopy revealed that a fraction of the MHC class II molecules(More)
Immunogold staining and electron microscopy show that IL-2 receptor alpha-subunits exhibit nonrandom surface distribution on human T lymphoma cells. Analysis of interparticle distances reveals that this clustering on the scale of a few hundred nanometers is independent of the presence of IL-2 and of the expression of the IL-2R beta-subunit. Clustering of(More)
Distribution and lateral organization of Kv1.3 potassium channels and CD3 molecules were studied by using electron microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy, and fluorescence resonance energy transfer. Immunogold labeling and electron microscopy showed that the distribution of FLAG epitope-tagged Kv1.3 channels (Kv1.3/FLAG) significantly differs from(More)
Novel potent and selective diarylimidazole inhibitors of p38 MAP (mitogen-activated protein) kinase are described which have activity in both cell-based assays of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) release and an animal model of rheumatoid arthritis. The SAR leading to the development of selectivity against c-Raf and JNK2alpha1 kinases is presented,(More)
An attempt to develop a water-soluble carbonic anhydrase inhibitor focused on exploring structure-activity relationships in the thienothiopyransulfonamide class. The strategy to influence water solubility while retaining carbonic anhydrase activity involved the introduction of a hydroxyl moiety and adjusting the oxidation state of the sulfur on the(More)
In vivo and in vitro metabolism of 6-chloro-4(S)-cyclopropyl-3,4-dihydro-4-((2-pyridyl) ethynyl)quinazolin-2(1H)-one (L-738,372), a potent human immunodeficiency virus-type 1 reverse transcriptase inhibitor, has been investigated in rats, dogs, and monkeys. Following 0.9 mg/kg iv and 9 mg/kg po doses, systemic blood clearance (CLB) and bioavailability (F)(More)
A series of 73 dibenzo[a,d]cycloalkenimines were synthesized and evaluated for their ability to displace (+)-10,11-dihydro-5-methyl-5H-dibenzo[a,d]cyclohepten-5,10-imine ([3H]-(+)-10) from its specific binding site on rat cortical membranes. A number of the more active compounds (Ki ranging from 0.006 to 0.21 microM) were evaluated for N-methyl-D-aspartate(More)
3(S)-(6-methoxypyridin-3-yl)-3-[2-oxo-3-[3-(5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-[1,8]-naphthyridin-2-yl)propyl]imidazolidin-1-yl]propionic acid 6 was identified as a potent and selective antagonist of the alpha(v)beta(3) receptor. This compound has an excellent in vitro profile (IC(50) = 0.08 nM), a significant unbound fraction in human plasma (12%), and good(More)
