Recent advances in microtubule-stabilizing agents.
This review focuses on the natural sources, structural features, mechanisms of action, structure-activity relationship (SAR) and chemical synthesis of MSAs, which mainly include paclitaxel, taccalonolides, epothilones, and FR182877 (cyclostreptin). Expand
Synthèse de dérivés de la Névirapine substitués au carbone 13 pour l’étude de l’activation métabolique de cet antirétroviral dans des épidermes humains reconstruits
En utilisant une technique non invasive, the RMN HRMAS associee aux epidermes humains reconstruits, il a ete possible of suivre l’eventuelle bioactivation epidermique de la Nevirapine et de ses derives ainsi que the fixation of l”un d’eux dans l�’epiderme. Expand
Elucidation and characterization of genes associated with montbretin a biosynthesis within crocosmia x crocosmiiflora and white pine weevil defense in picea sitchensis

Terpenoids with Special Pharmacological Significance: A Review
The tricyclic sesquiterpene (–)-englerin A isolated from the stem bark of the Phyllanthus engleri plant (Euphorbiaceae) is highly active against certain renal cancer cell lines, and recent studies showed that engler in A is also a potent and selective activator of TRPC4 and TRPC5 calcium channels.

Controlled Release, Intestinal Transport, and Oral Bioavailablity of Paclitaxel Can be Considerably Increased Using Suitably Tailored Pegylated Poly(Anhydride) Nanoparticles.
In all, PTX-cyclodextrin complexes encapsulated in pegylated nanoparticles managed to promote the intestinal uptake of the drug displaying sustained plasma levels after oral administration to laboratory animals with a more prolonged plasma profile compared with the formulation with no PEG at all.

Production of taxadiene from cultured ginseng roots transformed with taxadiene synthase gene.
This is the first report of the production ofTaxadiene by engineering ginseng roots with a taxadiene synthase gene, and the de novo formation of taxadienes was identified by mass spectroscopy profiling. Expand
Design, Syntheses and Biological Activities of Paclitaxel Analogs
The conformation of paclitaxel in the bound state on the protein has been proposed to be the T-taxol conformation, and paclitaxel analogs constrained to the T-taxol conformation proved to beExpand
