The synthesis and NMR structure analysis of a group of oxygenated steroids containing isoxazole, dihydrofuran, tetrahydrofuran rings or enamino carbonyl fragment in the side chain have been fulfilled. The prepared compounds were tested toward several enzymes (human cytochrome P450s CYP17, CYP19, CYP51 and CYP51 of pathogenic fungus Candida glabrata...

With the alarming burden of antibiotic resistance, antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) seem to be novel antimicrobial alternatives for infection treatment due to their rapid broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity and low tendency for bacterial resistance. To obtain promising AMPs, a series of new peptides were designed and synthesized by conjugating vario...
Modification of cell walls of apple, red beet and kiwifruit by heating in acid conditions: common and specific responses. 15th Cell wall meeting
Side chain of syndiotactic-1,2-polybutadiene (SPBU) has been modified by means of hydrogenation, hydrosilylation with trialkylsilane compounds, or thiol–ene reaction with alkyl thiol compounds. Crystallization temperature (Tc) of the resulting polymers, which was detected on the cooling process from melting state, decreased with increasing the modi...

(23S,25R)-1α,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 26,23-lactone (calcitriol lactone) is a major metabolite of 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 that binds to vitamin D receptor (VDR) and exhibits various biological activities. This lactone and its derivatives are considered to have potential as drug candidates to treat VDR-related diseases, but their biological activiti...
Current Treatment Options in Allergy
It was originally thought that, as all betalactams share a four-member ring, they would cross-react, and so the classical recommendation was for allergic patients to avoid all betalactams. However, later studies found that some individuals selectively responded to one betalactam only and tolerated others. This was shown to be more frequent than ini...

Temporin-SHc (FLSHIAGFLSNLFamide) first isolated from skin extraction of the Tunisian frog Pelophylax saharica, which shows potent antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive bacteria and is highly active against yeasts and fungi without hemolytic activity at antimicrobial concentrations. The peptide adopts well-defined α-helical conformation when...

•Hydrogen crossover of membranes with variable side chain was investigated.•Short side chain perfluorosulfonic acid membrane has slower decay.•Membrane decay is related to the hydrogen crossover.
Two spiro paclitaxel-mimics consisting only of an oxetane D-ring and a C-13 side chain were designed and synthesized on the basis of analysis of structure-activity relationships (SAR) of paclitaxel. In vitro microtubule-stabilizing and antiproliferative assays indicated a moderate weaker activity of the mimics than paclitaxel, but which still repre...
Colloid and Polymer Science
Supercooling of micro- and nanoencapsulated phase change material is widely observed as their diameters depress to a limitation upon cooling. The aim of this study is to suppress the supercooling of nanoencapsulated n-octadecane (NanoC18) using a novel copolymer consisting of long n-alkyl side chains as shell. Nanoencapsulations of n-octadecane wit...
