The A-domain is a approximately 200-amino acid peptide present within structurally diverse proadhesive proteins including seven integrins. A recombinant form of the A-domain of beta 2 integrins CR3 and LFA-1 has been recently shown to bind divalent cations and to contain binding sites for protein ligands that play essential roles in leukocyte trafficking to(More)
The 4-piperidyl moiety and the pyrazole ring in 1-(3-chlorophenyl)-5-(4-phenoxyphenyl)-3-(4-piperidyl)pyrazole 2, which has previously shown improved DNA gyrase inhibition and target-related antibacterial activity, were transformed to other groups and the in vitro antibacterial activity of the synthesized compounds was evaluated. The selected pyrazole,(More)
Formaldehyde is a well-known air impurity. The possibility was investigated in this study that pharmaceutical excipients commonly used in oral solid dosage forms might also be sources of formaldehyde. The results showed that formaldehyde is generated by the excipients lactose, D-mannitol, microcrystalline cellulose, low-substituted hydroxypropylcellulose,(More)
The importance of protein phosphorylation in biological regulation is widely recognized; thus, a number of extracellular signal- and second messenger-linked protein kinases have been well characterized, and various substrates for these kinases have been identified. We present evidence that the glycolytic intermediate 3-phosphoglycerate can cause a marked(More)
Two major metabolites in humans of blonanserin, 2-(4-ethyl-1-piperazinyl)-4-(4-fluorophenyl)-5,6,7,8,9,10-hexahydrocycloocta-[b]pyridine (code name AD-5423), were synthesized. The first, 7-hydroxylated AD-5423, was synthesized through a four-step process starting from 4-fluorobenzoylacetonitrile (1), and the second, 8-hydroxylated AD-5423, a nine-step(More)
A new antibiotic, which is structurally related to 5-aminolevulinic acid, a precursor of heme biosynthesis, and named alaremycin, was isolated from the culture broth of an actinomycete strain through a random screening with the blue assay to detect the formation of anucleate cells in Escherichia coli. The producing strain was identified as Streptomyces sp.(More)
[3-[(2R)-[[(2R)-(3-Chlorophenyl)-2-hydroxyethyl]amino]proryl]-1H-indol-7-yloxy]acetic acid (AJ-9677), which was being developed as an antidiabetic, was observed to degrade in tablet preparations. The main degradation product in tablets, AD-9889, was a carbon adduct of the drug substance. When the drug substance was exposed to formaldehyde in aqueous(More)
We principally used two strategies for gene prediction and combined the results (see Supplementary Information for details). (1) Each read-pair of cDNA clones was mapped on the contigs using BLAST and putatively transcribed regions were determined by clustering the mapped pairs. (2) ORFs likely to encode a protein showing similarity to known proteins or(More)
