Free radical generating substances, including fulvic acids, mycotoxins, Fe(II), etc attack chondrocytes, causing dedifferentiation. The dedifferentiated cells synthesize and secrete abnormal collagens rich in type I instead of the normal type II. These substances also directly attack collagens in the extracellular matrix. The abnormal collagens make the(More)
Inspired by polyhydroxylated pyrrolidine alkaloid natural products, a 18-membered library of 2-aryl polyhydroxylated pyrrolidines has been efficiently prepared in two or three synthetic steps from the known chiral cyclic nitrones with high yield and purity and excellent stereoselectivity. The inhibitory activity of all these compounds against various(More)
