23-O-(1,4'-Bipiperidine-1-carbonyl)betulinic acid (BBA), a synthetic derivative of 23-hydroxybetulinic acid (23-HBA), shows a reversal effect on multidrug resistance (MDR) in our preliminary screening. Overexpression of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters such as ABCB1, ABCG2, and ABCC1 has been reported in recent studies to be a major factor(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major obstacle to successful chemotherapy for cancer; thus, novel MDR reversers are urgently needed. In the present study, we assessed whether two synthetic derivatives of 23-hydroxybetulinic acid, 3,23-O-diacetyl-17-1,4'-bipiperidinyl betulinic amide (DABB) and 3,23-O-dihydroxy-17-1,4'-bipiperidinyl betulinic amide (DHBB),(More)
INTRODUCTION There is an urgent need to discover novel antibiotics to overcome the growing problem of antibiotic resistance, which has become a serious concern in current medicine. Ketolides, the third generation of macrolide antibiotics, have shown promising effect against macrolide-resistant pathogens in respiratory diseases. Currently, a number of(More)
The trypanothione reductase (TryR) has been used as a key validated target to guide drug discovery for human African trypanosomiasis (HAT). 3D-QSAR and docking studies were performed on a series of 3,4-dihydroquinazolines as TryR inhibitors to establish a molecular model for new drug design. The CoMFA and CoMSIA models resulted from 53 molecules gave r cv 2(More)
A series of novel oxazolidinone compounds with a substituted ligustrazine C-ring unit and different substituted groups at the C-5 side chain were designed and synthesized using linezolid as a lead and based on a scaffold hopping strategy. Their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activities were evaluated. The results of in vitro antibacterial assays showed(More)
