Emerging flaviviruses are causative agents of severe and life-threatening diseases, against which no approved therapies are available. Among the nucleoside analogues, which represent a promising group of potentially therapeutic compounds, fluorine-substituted nucleosides are characterized by unique structural and functional properties. ABSTRACT Emerging flaviviruses are causative agents of severe and life-threatening diseases, against which no approved therapies are available. Among the… 
High-Throughput Screening of FDA-Approved Drug Library Reveals Ixazomib Is a Broad-Spectrum Antiviral Agent against Arboviruses
TLDR
Screens of small-molecule compounds with anti-tick-borne encephalitis virus, West Nile virus, yellow fever virus and chikungunya virus activity from 2580 FDA-approved drugs offer critical information which supports the role of ixazomib as a broad-spectrum agent against arboviruses.
Drug Discovery of Nucleos(t)ide Antiviral Agents: Dedicated to Prof. Dr. Erik De Clercq on Occasion of His 80th Birthday
TLDR
Overall, the broad-spectrum antiviral potential of nucleos(t)ide analogues supports their development to treat or prevent current and emerging infectious diseases worldwide.
A Review on Biological Activities of Sugars and Sugar Derivatives
TLDR
Biological investigation of different activities of sugar derivatives proves their suitability as one of the interesting classes of molecules for development of new drugs.
Digital Holographic Microscopy of Living Hela Cells Before and After Enzyme Treatments
TLDR
This is the first study to report the trypsin-induced deformation of living HeLa cells by DHM without any pre-treatment, such as fluorescent labeling, which substantiate the potential of DHM techniques to study the effects of enzymes on living cells.
BRNO UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY FACULTY OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMMUNICATION ANALYSIS OF MICROSCOPIC IMAGES OF CANCER CELLS
  • Biology
TLDR
A novel U-Net-based method for robust adherent cell segmentation for quantitative phase microscopy image is designed and optimised and improved iterative thresholding includes two additional steps – Laplacian of Gaussian image enhancement and distance transform-based splitting.

Nucleoside analogs as a rich source of antiviral agents active against arthropod-borne flaviviruses
TLDR
This review summarizes available information on antiviral research of nucleoside analogs against arthropod-borne members of the genus Flavivirus within the family Flaviviridae, being primarily focused on description ofucleoside inhibitors of flaviviral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, methyltransferase, and helicase/NTPase.
Structure-activity relationships of nucleoside analogues for inhibition of tick-borne encephalitis virus.
The Predominant Mechanism by Which Ribavirin Exerts Its Antiviral Activity In Vitro against Flaviviruses and Paramyxoviruses Is Mediated by Inhibition of IMP Dehydrogenase
TLDR
Data provide compelling evidence that the predominant mechanism of action of ribavirin in vitro against flavi- and paramyxoviruses is based on inhibition of cellular IMP dehydrogenase activity.
Inhibition of Dengue Virus RNA Synthesis by an Adenosine Nucleoside
TLDR
The results suggest that this adenosine inhibitor is phosphorylated to an active (triphosphate) form which functions as a chain terminator for viral RNA synthesis.
5'-Silylated 3'-1,2,3-triazolyl Thymidine Analogues as Inhibitors of West Nile Virus and Dengue Virus.
TLDR
A 5'-silylated nucleoside scaffold derived from 3'-azidothymidine (AZT) consistently and selectively inhibiting WNV and DENV at low micromolar concentrations is reported, with particularly interesting is the 5' silyl group which turns on the antiviral activity against WNV while abrogating the previously reported antiviral potency against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1).
Structure-activity relationship of purine ribonucleosides for inhibition of hepatitis C virus RNA-dependent RNA polymerase.
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of the ribo configuration 2'- and 3'-hydroxy pharmacophores for inhibition of HCV RNA replication in the cell-based assay and demonstrate that inclusion of the 2'-C-methylribonucleoside pharmacophore leads to increased resistance to adenosine deaminase and purine nucleoside phosphorylase mediated metabolism.
Anti-parasite activity of nucleoside analogues in Leishmania tropica promastigotes.
Many nucleoside analogs were screened for anti-protozoa activity on Leishmania tropica in an in vitro culture system. 3'-Deoxyinosine and several tubercidin derivatives were found to be potent
