DNA sequence information underpins genetic research, enabling discoveries of important biological or medical benefit. Sequencing projects have traditionally used long (400-800 base pair) reads, but the existence of reference sequences for the human and many other genomes makes it possible to develop new, fast approaches to re-sequencing, whereby shorter(More)
The antiseizure activity of benzodiazepines (BDZs) 1-5 in mice and rats as animal models is described. These BDZs have selective efficacy for alpha2beta3gamma2 and alpha3beta3gamma2 GABA(A)-receptors. Significant anticonvulsant activity with little or no motor impairment and therapeutic indexes (TI) of 2.8-44 (mice, ip) were observed for compounds 2-4 in(More)
A convenient synthesis of novel isoxazole-substituted 9-anilinoacridine derivatives 5a-j was reported. The compounds were confirmed by physical and analytical data and screened for in vitro antioxidant activity by DPPH method, reducing power assay and total antioxidant capacity method. The cytotoxic activity of the compounds was also studied in HEp-2 cell(More)
A number of novel ofloxacin analogues were synthesized by modifying the carboxylic acid at C-6. To investigate the antimicrobial data on structural basis, in-silico docking studies of the tested compounds into the crystal structure of topoisomerase II using Autodock vina 4.0 program was performed in order to predict the affinity and orientation of the(More)
