Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of the loss of cognitive function among the elderly, and the aggregation and deposition of misfolded beta-amyloid protein (Abeta) contribute to this progressive central nervous system decline. Therefore, compounds that inhibit or even...

The antirepressor indole 3-propanoate has been shown by X-ray crystallography to bind in a different orientation compared with the natural corepressor for the tryp repressor, L-tryptophan (Lawson, C.L. & Sigler, P. B. (1988) Nature 333, 869-871). This suggests a simple...

Aging is a multi-factorial process, however, it is generally accepted that reactive oxygen species (ROS) are significant contributors. Mitochondria are important players in the aging process because they produce most of the cellular ROS. Despite the strength of the free-radical...

Indole-3-propionic acid (IPA), a phytohormone derivative, is a potent inhibitor of growth of Legionella pneumophila cultivated extracellularly in a chemically defined hypotonic medium and intracellularly in human monocytes. The inhibitory activity turns into bactericidal activity with increasing concentrations. The susceptibility...
