Transthyretin (TTR) is one of thirty non-homologous proteins whose misfolding, dissociation, aggregation, and deposition is linked to human amyloid diseases. Previous studies have identified that TTR amyloidogenesis can be inhibited through stabilization of the native tetramer state by small molecule binding to the thyroid hormone sites of TTR. We have(More)
With the aim of obtaining compounds possessing high SERT selectivity, in the present work we synthesized and studied the inhibition of serotonin (SERT), dopamine (DAT) and norepinephrine (NET) transporters by docking studies and experimental binding measurements of a series of 4-(aryl)piperidin-3-one O-4-benzyl oxime hydrochlorides (1-10) of both E and Z(More)
Some oxime ether-substituted aryloxypropanolamines 3-5, structurally related to the active metabolite 2 of sarpogrelate 1, were synthesized and tested for their affinities at 5-HT2A and 5-HT1A serotoninergic receptors as well as at the alpha1-adrenoceptor. The results show that the compounds possess, at least partially, the ability of the model compounds 1(More)
