Factor VIII was purified from cryoprecipitate by ion exchange chromatography on solid phase polyelectrolyte E-5 (PE-E5). The product was highly purified (3.5 u VIII:C/mg protein) compared to conventional concentrate (0.3 u VIII:C/mg protein) with low fibrinogen, low isoagglutinin titre, and a ratio of factor VIII coagulant activity (VIII:C) to factor VII(More)
Nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB), a transcription factor with a critical role in promoting inflammation and cell survival, is constitutively activated in estrogen-receptor (ER)-negative breast cancer and is considered a potential therapeutic target for this type of neoplasia. We have previously demonstrated that cyclopentenone prostaglandins are potent(More)
Privileged structures bind to multiple receptors with high affinity, thus aiding the development of novel biologically active compounds. Indoles are classed as privileged structures, and as a result of the indole nucleus being present in a broad range of biologically active molecules, it has been suggested that indoles probably represent the most important(More)
The Smiles rearrangement is the intramolecular nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction incorporating a heteroatom as the nucleophilic component and an activated electrophilic arene. One particular variation--the Truce-Smiles rearrangement--utilises a carbon-based nucleophile and an electrophilic arene which does not require additional activation. Such a(More)
When adorned with n-octyl chains azobenzene is able to disrupt a variety of calcein-loaded phospholipid liposomes. The levels of lysis observed are dependent both on the lipid headgroup and the conformation of the azobenzene compound. In all cases studied, it has been shown that the cis-conformer is more membrane-interactive than the trans-conformer,(More)
Tumours of the central nervous system are intrinsically more dangerous than tumours at other sites, and in particular, brain tumours are responsible for 3% of cancer deaths in the UK. Despite this, research into new therapies only receives 1% of national cancer research spend. The most common chemotherapies are temozolomide, procarbazine, carmustine,(More)
The versatility and reaction specificity of a novel bioinorganic catalyst is demonstrated in various reactions. Palladized cells (bioPd) of the sulphate-reducing bacterium Desulfovibrio desulfuricans showed an increased product selectivity and a catalytic activity comparable to a commercial Pd catalyst in several industrially relevant hydrogenations and(More)
