AMDD: antimicrobial drug database.
Alīgarh, India. In Genomics Proteomics Bioinformatics, 2012
Thus, we developed a comprehensive database, anti microbial drug database (AMDD), of known synthetic antibacterial and antifungal compounds that were extracted from the available literature and other chemical databases, e.g., PubChem, PubChem BioAssay and ZINC, etc.
Aryl Piperazinyl Ureas as Inhibitors of Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase (FAAH) in Rat, Dog, and Primate.
San Diego, United States. In Acs Med Chem Lett, 2012
A potent and selective (does not inhibit FAAH-2) member of this class, JNJ-40355003, was found to elevate the plasma levels of three fatty acid amides: anandamide, oleoyl ethanolamide, and palmitoyl ethanolamide, in the rat, dog, and cynomolgous monkey.
Tempo and mode in the endocannaboinoid system.
United States. In J Mol Evol, 2007
Next we used FUGE (tree-based maximum-likelihood model) to compute human lineage-specific Ka/Ks calculations for 18 genes, which ranged from 1.11 to 0.00, in rank order from highest to lowest: PTPN22, NAAA, TRPV1, TRPA1, NAPE-PLD, MAGL, PPARgamma, FAAH1, COX2, FAAH2, ABDH4, CB2, GPR55, DAGLbeta, PPARalpha, TRPV4, CB1, DAGLalpha; differences were significant (p < 0.0001).
Coevolution between cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoid ligands.
United States. In Gene, 2007
We addressed this debate with a coevolutionary analysis, by examining genes for CB1, CB2, and ten genes that encode ligand metabolic enzymes: abhydrolase domain containing 4 protein, cyclooxygenase 2, diacylglycerol lipase paralogs (DAGLalpha, DAGLbeta), fatty acid amide hydrolase paralogs (FAAH1, FAAH2), monoglyceride lipase, N-acylethanolamine acid amidase, NAPE-selective phospholipase D, and protein tyrosine phosphatase non-receptor type 22. Gene trees (cladograms) of CB1, CB2, and ligand enzymes were obtained by searching for orthologs (tBLASTn) in the genomes of nine phylogenetically diverse species, aligning ortholog sequences with ClustalX, and applying Bayesian analysis (MrBayes).
A shifted repertoire of endocannabinoid genes in the zebrafish (Danio rerio).
United States. In Mol Genet Genomics, 2007
Zebrafish expressed orthologs of cannabinoid receptor 1, transient receptor potential channel vanilloid receptor 4, GPR55 receptor, fatty acid amide hydrolase 1, monoacylglycerol lipase, NAPE-selective phospholipase D, abhydrolase domain-containing protein 4, and diacylglycerol lipase alpha and beta; and paired paralogs of cannabinoid receptor 2, fatty acid amide hydrolase 2, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha, prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2, and transient receptor potential cation channel subtype A1.
