BACKGROUND Histone demethylases (HDMs) have a prominent role in epigenetic regulation and are emerging as potential therapeutic cancer targets. The search for small molecules able to inhibit HDMs in vivo is very active but at the present few compounds were found to be specific for defined classes of these enzymes. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS In order(More)
Cannabinoid (CB) and opioid systems are both involved in analgesia, food intake, mood and behavior. Due to the co-localization of µ-opioid (MOR) and CB1 receptors in various regions of the central nervous system (CNS) and their ability to form heterodimers, bivalent ligands targeting to both these systems may be good candidates to investigate the existence(More)
Chiral HIV-1 non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) are of great interest since one enantiomer is often more potent than the corresponding counterpart against the HIV-1 wild type (WT) and the HIV-1 drug resistant mutant strains. This review exemplifies the various studies made to investigate the effect of chirality on the antiretroviral(More)
