  • Novel fluorescent probes of 10-hydroxyevodiamine: autophagy and apoptosis-inducing anticancer mechanisms.
    Related ArticlesNovel fluorescent probes of 10-hydroxyevodiamine: autophagy and apoptosis-inducing anticancer mechanisms. Acta Pharm Sin B. 2019 Jan;9(1):144-156 Authors: Chen S, Dong G, Wu S, Liu N, Zhang W, Sheng C Abstract Natural product evodiamine and its derivatives represent a promising class of multi-target antitumor agents. However, the clinical development of these compounds has been hampered by a poor understanding of their antitumor mechanisms. To tackle this obstacle, herein, novel fluorescent probes were designed to elucidate the antitumor mode of action of 10-hydroxyevodiamine. This compound was proven to be distributed in the mitochondria and lysosomes and to act by autophagy and ... read more

  • Scalable Total Synthesis of (-)-Vinigrol.
    Scalable Total Synthesis of (-)-Vinigrol. J Am Chem Soc. 2019 Feb 15;: Authors: Yu X, Xiao L, Wang Z, Luo T Abstract Vinigrol is a structurally and stereochemically complex natural product that displays various potent pharmacological activities, including the capability to modulate TNF-α. A new and efficient synthetic route towards this natural product has been developed to complete the asymmetric synthesis of (-)-vinigrol and provide over 600 mg material, manifesting the power of macrocyclic stereocontrol and transannular Diels-Alder reaction.PMID: 30767520 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] ... read more

  • Biosynthesis of Providencin: Understanding Photochemical Cyclobutane Formation with Density Functional Theory.
    Biosynthesis of Providencin: Understanding Photochemical Cyclobutane Formation with Density Functional Theory. Org Lett. 2019 Feb 15;: Authors: Tang B, Paton RS Abstract The unique structure of furanocembranoid natural product providencin has stimulated biosynthetic hypotheses, especially concerning the formation of its cyclobutanol ring. One such hypothesis involves a photochemically induced Norrish-Yang cyclization in bipinnatin E. We have used computations to assess the feasibility and the stereochemical outcome of this proposed biosynthetic transformation. Density functional theory calculations reveal that the proposed Norrish-Yang cyclization in bipinnatin E is possible and that the stereoselectivity of this step is consistent with that of the natural ... read more

  • Enhanced bioavailability and hepatoprotectivity of optimized ursolic acid-phospholipid complex.
    Enhanced bioavailability and hepatoprotectivity of optimized ursolic acid-phospholipid complex. Drug Dev Ind Pharm. 2019 Feb 15;:1-45 Authors: Biswas S, Mukherjee PK, Harwansh RK, Bannerjee S, Bhattacharjee P Abstract OBJECTIVE: To prepare and characterize an optimized phospholipid complex of Ursolic acid (UA) to overcome the poor pharmacokinetic properties and to investigate the impact of the complex on hepatoprotective activity and bioavailability in animal model. SIGNIFICANCE: UA is a potential phytoconstituent obtained from several plant sources, which has been explored for its diverse pharmacological activities including hepatoprotection. Its major limitation is poor absorption, rapid elimination and hence low bioavailability after administration. METHODS: ... read more

  • β-Selective C-Glycosylation and its Application in the Synthesis of Scleropentaside A.
    β-Selective C-Glycosylation and its Application in the Synthesis of Scleropentaside A. Angew Chem Int Ed Engl. 2019 Feb 15;: Authors: Boehlich GJ, Schützenmeister N Abstract C-Glycosides are carbohydrates bearing a C-C bond to an aglycon at the anomeric center. Due to their high stability towards chemical and enzymatic hydrolysis, these compounds are widely used as carbohydrate mimics in drug development. Herein, we report a general and exclusively β selective method for the synthesis of a naturally abundant acyl-C-glycosidic structural motif found firstly in the Scleropentaside natural product family. A Corey-Seebach Umpolung reaction as the key step in the synthesis of ... read more

  • Design and synthesis of aminothiazolyl norfloxacin analogues as potential antimicrobial agents and their biological evaluation.
    Design and synthesis of aminothiazolyl norfloxacin analogues as potential antimicrobial agents and their biological evaluation. Eur J Med Chem. 2019 Feb 04;167:105-123 Authors: Wang LL, Battini N, Bheemanaboina RRY, Zhang SL, Zhou CH Abstract A series of aminothiazolyl norfloxacin analogues as a new type of potential antimicrobial agents were synthesized and screened for their antimicrobial activities. Most of the prepared compounds exhibited excellent inhibitory efficiencies. Especially, norfloxacin analogue II-c displayed superior antimicrobial activities against K. pneumoniae and C. albicans with MIC values of 0.005 and 0.010 mM to reference drugs, respectively. This compound not only showed broad antimicrobial spectrum, rapid bactericidal efficacy and ... read more
