Topics from this paper

Identification of two natural compound inhibitors of Leishmania donovani Spermidine Synthase (SpdS) through molecular docking and dynamic studies
The pharmacokinetic properties of the identified compounds were validated and the binding efficiency of these ligands over the original substrate has been demonstrated, and Geraniol and Linalool can be considered as lead molecules for future investigations targeting SpdS.
Pegg and as a Target for Chemotherapy Polyamine Metabolism and Its Importance in Neoplastic Growth
The polyamine-biosynthetic pathway represents an inviting target for the development of agents inhibiting carcinogenesis and tumor growth. Polyamines play an essential role in the proliferation and
Inhibition of polyamine biosynthesis in fungi
The results of research on the use of ODC inhibitors to control plant and animal pathogens are reviewed, and the effects of such inhibitors on mycorrhizal fungi are examined.
General Screening of Enzyme Inhibitors
In the past several decades, microorganisms have provided us with many antibiotics useful as chemotherapeutic agents. Screening for new enzyme inhibitors from microorganisms has led us to new
Detection of novel secondary metabolites.
This review focuses on the genesis and development of the gamut of methodologies that have led to the successful detection of the wide variety of novel secondary metabolites that include antibacterial, antigungal, antiviral and antitumour antibiotics, enzyme inhibitors, pharmacologically and immunologically active agents, products useful in agriculture and animal husbandry, microbial regulators, and other compounds for which no bioactive role has yet been found.


Polyamines in mammalian tumors. Part II.
This chapter investigates the links between polyamines and tumors by modifying the culture conditions to clarify the influence of the environmental milieu on the activities of the polyamine biosynthetic enzymes by enhancing or decreasing the levels of these enzymes to see the role of polyamines in the cell growth process.
Studies of inhibition of rat spermidine synthase and spermine synthase.
It is suggested that 5'-methylthiotubercidin and the sulphone of S-adenosyl-3-thiopropylamine may be particularly valuable in this respect of the possible regulation of polyamine synthesis by endogenous nucleosides.
A carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance study of mollisin and its biosynthesis.
New antibiotics, griseusins A and B. Isolation and characterization.
New antibiotics, griseusins A and B were isolated from a strain of Streptomyces griseus. Both antibiotics have a 5-hydroxy-1, 4-naphthoquinone chromophore and their molecular formulae were determined
Nanomycins, new antibiotics produced by a strain of Streptomyces. II. Structure and biosynthesis.
Evidence is put forward which describes the structure and stereochemistry of new antibiotics, nanaomycins A and B, as I and V, respectively, which were found to be synthesized from acetate via a polyketide by Streptomyces rosa var.
