Quaternary Indolizidine and Indolizidone Iminosugars as Potential Immunostimulating and Glycosidase Inhibitory Agents: Synthesis, Conformational Analysis, Biological Activity, and Molecular Docking Study.
Pune, India. In J Med Chem, Nov 2015
New quaternary indolizidine iminosugars, with hydroxymethyl group at the ring junction, namely, C-8a-hydroxymethyl-1-deoxycastanospermine congeners 1a, 2a, 3a and their 3-oxo analogs 1b, 2b, and 3b were synthesized by using intramolecular reductive aminocyclization/lactamization of d-mannose/D-glucose derived C5-γ-azido esters as a key step wherein both the rings of the indolizidine skeleton were built up in one pot following the cascade reaction pathway.
Identification of Circulating Biomarker Candidates for Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC): An Integrated Prioritization Approach.
Islamabad, Pakistan. In Plos One, 2014
Finally, interactome analysis of these proteins with midkine (MDK), dickkopf-1 (DKK-1), current standard HCC biomarker alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), its interacting partners in conjunction with HCC-specific circulating and liver deregulated miRNAs target filtration highlighted seven novel statistically significant putative biomarkers including complement component 8, alpha (C8A), mannose binding lectin (MBL2), antithrombin III (SERPINC1), 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (HSD11B1), alcohol dehydrogenase 6 (ADH6), beta-ureidopropionase (UPB1) and cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily A, polypeptide 6 (CYP2A6).
Myelin basic protein undergoes a broader range of modifications in mammals than in lower vertebrates.
Ann Arbor, United States. In J Proteome Res, 2012
Other modifications found in bovine MBP include N-terminal acetylation in components C1, C2, and C3; oxidation of methionine 19 in all five components; all charge isomers having both a mono- and dimethylated (symmetric) arginine at position 106; deimination in arginines 23 and 47 found only in component C8b; deimination of arginine 96 and deamidation in glutamine 102 found in components C2, C3, C8a, and C8b; phosphorylation in threonine 97 restricted to charge components C2 and C3; deimination in arginine 161 only found in component C3; deamidation of glutamine 120 was only observed in C3.
Genetic variability of the coding region for the prion protein gene (PRNP) in gayal (Bos frontalis).
Kunming, China. In Mol Biol Rep, 2012
A total of ten single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), including six silent mutations (C60T, G75A, A108T, G126A, C357T and C678T) and four mis-sense mutations (C8A, G145A, G461A and C756G), corresponding to amino acids T3K, G49S9, N154S and I252M were identified, revealing high genetic diversity.
Coding polymorphisms in the genes of the alternative complement pathway and abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Belfast, United Kingdom. In Int J Immunogenet, 2011
This study tested 49 single nucleotide polymorphisms, including common putatively functional polymorphisms, in the genes of the alternative complement cascade (CFH, CFB, CFD, CFI, properdin, CR1, CR1L, CR2, CD46, vitronectin, C3, C5, C6, C7, C8A, C8B, C8G and C9).
The three-way relationship of polymorphisms of porcine genes encoding terminal complement components, their differential expression, and health-related phenotypes.
Germany. In Bmc Proc, 2010
The terminal complement components (TCCs: C6, C7, C8A, C8B, and C9) are encoded by the genes C6, C7, C8A, C8B, C8G, and C9.
