A novel series of piperidine-linked amino-triazine derivatives were designed, synthesized and evaluated for in vitro anti-HIV activity as non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors on the basis of our previous work. Screening results indicated that most compounds showed excellent activity against wild-type...

Monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) terminates the signaling function of the endocannabinoid, 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). During 2-AG hydrolysis, MAGL liberates arachidonic acid, feeding the principal substrate for the neuroinflammatory prostaglandins. In cancer cells, MAGL redirects lipid stores toward protumorigenic signaling lipids. Thus MAGL...

A review into the aza-Diels-Alder reaction, mainly concentrating on literature examples that form piperidin-4-ones from the reaction of imines and electron rich dienes or enones, either through a Lewis acidic/Brønsted acid approach or through the use of an organocatalyst. This...
