A novel series of (3-pyridylmethyl)benzoquinone derivatives was molecular designed and synthesized for the dual purpose of inhibiting thromboxane A2 and leukotriene biosynthesis enzymes and scavenging active oxygen species (AOS). They were evaluated for inhibition of TXA2 synthase, inhibition of 5-lipoxygenase...

C75, a known inhibitor of fatty acid synthase is postulated to cause significant weight loss through decreased hypothalamic neuropeptide Y (NPY) production. Peripherally, C75, an alpha-methylene-gamma-butyrolactone, reduces adipose tissue and fatty liver, despite high levels of malonyl-CoA. To investigate this...
