Molecular mechanisms of metabotropic GABAB receptor function
These discoveries provide comprehensive insights into the activation of the GABAB receptor, which not only broaden the understanding of its structure, pharmacology, and physiological effects but also will ultimately facilitate the discovery of new therapeutic drugs and neuromodulators. Expand
Nature-inspired remodeling of (aza)indoles to meta-aminoaryl nicotinates for late-stage conjugation of vitamin B3 to (hetero)arylamines
The development of a strategy for the synthesis of meta-aminoaryl nicotinates from 3-formyl(aza)indoles that enables the late-stage conjugation of bioactive (hetero)arylamines with Nicotinates and nicotinamides and allows access to the previously unexplored chemical space for biomedical research. Expand
The Psychonauts’ World of Cognitive Enhancers
Assessing psychonaut fora/platforms to better understand the online situation regarding CEs shows that NPSfinder® is helpful as part of an Early Warning System, which could update clinicians with the growing numbers of nootropics in the increasingly difficult-to-follow internet world. Expand
Study on the Interaction of Nicotinic Acid with l-Phenylalanine in Buffer Solution by Heat Capacity Measurements at Various Temperatures
The interaction between nicotinic acid (NA) and l-phenylalanine (Phe) was studied in aqueous phosphate buffer solutions (pH = 7.35) by differential scanning calorimetry. Heat capacities of nicotinicExpand
Syntheses and Preliminary Study on the DNA-Binding Property of Nicotinoyl Aspartic Acid Dipeptide and Tetrapeptide
Nicotinic acid and niacinamide are used in a variety of therapeutic application as important components of the co-factors, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotideExpand
Identification and quantification of vinpocetine and picamilon in dietary supplements sold in the United States.
It is found that consumers cannot obtain accurate information from supplement labels regarding the presence or quantity of vinpocetine and picamilon. Expand
A promising codrug of nicotinic acid and ibuprofen for managing dyslipidemia. I: Synthesis and in vitro evaluation
Codrug will be rapidly released from codrug to manage dyslipidemia, followed by the later release of IBP from IBP 2-hydroxyethyl ester to alleviate nicotinic acid cutaneous flushing. Expand
Determination of picamilon concentration in human plasma by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
A rapid liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method was developed and validated and successfully applied to characterize the pharmacokinetic profiles of picamilon in healthy volunteers, and is suitable for the Pharmacokinetic study of picAmilon in humans. Expand
Microwave‐Assisted Diversity‐Oriented Domino Synthesis of Functionalized Nicotinic Acid Derivatives
The microwave-assisted diversity-oriented domino synthesis of functionalized alkyl nicotinates from propargyl vinyl ethers is described. The domino manifold comprises a complex network of reactionsExpand


A Dihydropyridine Carrier System for Delivery of 2′,3′-Dideoxycytidine (DDC) to the Brain
Abstract The present study extends the dihdropyridine ⇌ pyridinium salt redox system to the delivery and sustained release of 2′,3′-dideoxycytidine (DDC) to the brains of mice in a continuing searchExpand
A dihydropyridine carrier system for sustained delivery of 2',3'-dideoxynucleosides to the brain.
The sustained local release of a 2',3'-dideoxynucleoside, such as 1, from a chemical delivery system represents a potentially useful approach to the treatment of AIDS dementia complex. Expand
A novel prodrug of an impermeant inhibitor of 3-deoxy-D-manno-2-octulosonate cytidylyltransferase has antibacterial activity.
Intracellular reduction of the disulfide leads to a rapid, intramolecular, displacement of the acid 2, which then inhibits the growth of Gram-negative bacteria by interfering with the biosynthesis of lipopolysaccharide. Expand
Pharmacokinetics of nicorandil.
Preliminary metabolic studies show that the main biotransformation pathways are denitration and then introduction into the nicotinamide metabolism, and unchanged nicorandil and denitrated metabolite excreted into the urine represent only about 1 and 4% of the dose, respectively. Expand
AIDS dementia: Synthesis and properties of a derivative of 3′‐azido‐3′‐deoxythymidine (AZT) that may become ‘locked’ in the central nervous system
The dihydropyridine ester 5′‐(1,4‐dihydro‐1‐methyl‐3‐pyridinylcarbonyl)‐3′‐deoxythymidine, was synthesized and showed potent anti‐HIV‐1 activity in MT‐4 cells most probably by hydrolysis to the parent nucleoside, AZT. Expand
The human immunodeficiency virus: infectivity and mechanisms of pathogenesis.
Infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) results in a profound immunosuppression due predominantly to a selective depletion of helper/inducer T lymphocytes that express the receptor forExpand
The AIDS dementia complex: I. Clinical features
In the most advanced stage of this AIDS dementia complex, patients exhibited a stereotyped picture of severe dementia, mutism, incontinence, paraplegia, and in some cases, myoclonus. Expand
Antihyperlipidemic properties of beta-pyridylcarbinol. A review of preclinical studies.
The available preclinical literature on the antihyperlipidemic properties of beta-pyridylcarbinol is reviewed and similarities between the pharmacological profiles for beta-PC and nicotinic acid, and evidence for the metabolic conversion of Beta-PC to Nicotinic Acid are discussed. Expand
Evaluation of Isonicotinoyl-γ-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) and Nicotinoyl-GABA as Pro-drugs of GABA
Isonicotinoyl-γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) (IG) and nicotinoyl-GABA (NG), candidate prodrugs of GABA, were assessed by measuring various pharmacological responses such as anticonvulsant effect,Expand
Metabolism of the nicotinic acid moiety of d,l-alpha-tocopheryl nicotinate.
The metabolism and distribution of TN incorporated into the cellular organelles of the liver, TN was injected intravenously to normal rats and the livers subjected to cell fractionation to indicate that the metabolism of the NA moiety of TN differs from that of free NA. Expand
