A serine-threonine kinase IKK-2 plays an important role in activation of NF-κB through phosphorylation of the inhibitor of NF-κB (IκB). As NF-κB is a major transcription factor that regulates genes responsible for cell proliferation and inflammation, development of selective IKK-2 inhibitors has been an important area of anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer(More)

This paper intends to introduce the development of a terminal agent for QoS measurement that is suitable for an NGN environment, and to summarize the results of its performance test. Using the terminal agent for service quality measurement, it is possible to measure the QoE-based end-to-end service quality of voice phone, video phone, and VoD services. In(More)
Although previous studies have investigated Hg sorption on various common minerals, there has been limited study of Hg interaction with apatite. In this study, systematic experiments regarding Hg sorption on HAP were performed over a wide range of physicochemical conditions. In the sorption edge experiments, Hg uptake by HAP exhibits a maximum sorption(More)
There has been much attention to discover mGluR1 antagonists for treating various central nervous system diseases such as seizures and neuropathic pain. Thienopyrimidinone derivatives were designed, synthesized, and biologically evaluated against mGluR1. Among the synthesized compounds, 3-(4-methoxyphenyl)-7-(o-tolyl)thienopyrimidin-4-one 30 exhibited the(More)
5-HT7 receptor (5-HT7R) is a promising target for the treatment of depression and neuropathic pain. 5-HT7R antagonists exhibited antidepressant effects, while the agonists produced strong anti-hyperalgesic effects. In our efforts to discover selective 5-HT7R antagonists or agonists, N-biphenylylmethyl 2-methoxyphenylpiperazinylalkanamides 1 were designed,(More)
Functionalized X-Bi bilayers (X = Ga, In, and Tl) with halogens bonded on their both sides have been recently claimed to be the giant topological insulators due to the strong band inversion strengths. Employing the first-principles electronic structure calculation, we find the topological band order transition from the order p - p - s of the X-Bi bilayers(More)
The local modification of intermolecular interactions in nickel-phthalocyanine molecules (NiPCs) is investigated on an Au(111) substrate using scanning tunneling microscopy. When the molecules are physisorbed on the substrate, they repel each other due to induced charge dipole moments. However, when the NiPC is chemisorbed on the substrate through the(More)
To develop novel, selective, and reversible MAO-B inhibitors for safer treatment of Parkinson's disease, benzothiazole and benzoxazole derivatives with indole moiety were designed and synthesized. Most of the synthesized compounds showed inhibitory activities against MAO-B and selectivity over MAO-A. The most active compound was compound 5b,(More)
