In this study, a novel quercetin derivative bearing a trifluoromethyl group was synthesized by the nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction between rutin and 2-chloro-5-(trifluoromethyl)-1,3-dinitrobenzene in basic medium. This synthetic quercetin showed antifungal activity against Candida albicans cultures. The results indicated a remarkable increase in(More)
The vertebrate retina contains typical photoreceptor (PR) cones and rods responsible for day/night vision, respectively, and intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) involved in the regulation of non-image-forming tasks. Rhodopsin/cone opsin photopigments in visual PRs or melanopsin (Opn4) in ipRGCs utilizes retinaldehyde as a(More)
