Activation of metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) subtypes can prevent neuronal injury through the signal transduction pathways of nitric oxide (NO). It is this link to NO free radical injury and subsequent DNA damage that is the most intriguing. We therefore examined whether neuronal protection through mGluR activation was dependent on the molecular(More)
Diosgenin, a promising anticancer steroidal sapogenin, was isolated from Dioscorea deltoidea. Keeping its stereochemistry rich architecture intact, a scheme for the synthesis of novel diosgenin analogues was designed using Cu (I)-catalysed alkyne-azide cycloaddition in order to study their structure-activity relationship. Both diosgenin and its analogues(More)
