Bioassay-guided fractionation of an active fraction from a marine sponge Topsentia sp. in our marine fraction library (MFL) led to the isolation and identification of halistanol sulfate (1) and a new sterol sulfate Sch 572423 (2). Compounds 1 and 2 were identified as P2Y(12) inhibitors with IC(50) of 0.48 and 2.2 microM, respectively. The general method of(More)
Two novel chemokine receptor CCR-5 inhibitors, Sch 210971 (1) and Sch 210972 (2), were isolated from the fungal fermentation broth of Chaetomium globosum by normal- and reversed-phase HPLC purifications. The structure determination of 1 and 2 was accomplished on the basis of UV, MS, and NMR spectral data analyses including COSY, NOESY, HMQC, and HMBC(More)
The 70% aqueous methanolic extract of the Peruvian plant Polygonum cuspidatum sp. was found to contain two novel phenolic saccharides 1 and 2, which were identified as inhibitors of the bacterial DNA primase enzyme. Structures of these two compounds were established based on high resolution NMR studies. Compound 1 and 2 inhibited the primase enzyme with an(More)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of an active fraction from an extract of a marine starfish, Novodinia antillensis, led to the isolation and identification of two new saponins, Sch 725737 (1) and Sch 725739 (2). Compound 1 was identified as the NaV1.8 inhibitor with IC(50) of approximately 9 microM. The purification and the structure elucidation of these two(More)
The 70% aqueous methanolic extract of the Chinese plant Aristolochia manshuriensis was found to contain two novel substituted phenanthrene compounds, SCH 546909 (1), and another phenanthrene glycoside (2). The structures of 1 and 2 were established based on NMR studies. They were identified as inhibitors of the CDK2 enzyme. Compound 1 was found to be a(More)
A new hydrogenated azaphilone Sch725680 (1) was isolated and identified from the culture of an Aspergillus sp. The structure elucidation of 1 was achieved based on extensive NMR spectroscopic analyses. Compound 1 showed inhibitory activity against Saccharomyces cerevisiae (PM503) and Candida albicans (C43) with MICs of 8 and 64 microg/ml, respectively.
A series of pyrazoloquinoline analogs have been synthesized and shown to bind to PDE10 with high affinity. From the SAR study and our lead optimization efforts, compounds 16 and 27 were found to possess potent oral antipsychotic activity in the MK-801 induced hyperactive rat model.
A novel primase inhibitor, Sch 642305 (1), was isolated from the fermentation broth of the fungal culture Penicillium verrucosum. The structure of 1 was elucidated on the basis of MS and NMR spectroscopic data as a new and unusual bicyclic 10-membered macrolide. The absolute configuration of the asymmetric centers was determined by X-ray crystallographic(More)
