Coiled coils (CCs) are among the best-understood protein folds. Nonetheless, there are gaps in our knowledge of CCs. Notably, CCs are likely to be structurally more dynamic than often considered. Here, we explore this in an abundant class of CCs

α-Galactosidase (αGal) is a lysosomal enzyme that hydrolyses the terminal α-galactosyl moiety from glycosphingolipids. Mutations in the encoding genes for αGal lead to defective or misfolded enzyme, which results in substrate accumulation and subsequent organ dysfunction. The metabolic disease caused

This report demonstrates that NPC-15199 [(N-(9-fluorenylmethoxycarbonyl)L-leucine)], a novel anti-inflammatory agent, increases intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in human bladder female transitional cancer (BFTC) cells. Using fura-2 as a Ca2+ probe, NPC-15199 (0.1-2 mM) was found to increase [Ca2+]i concentration-dependently. The response

Chemotherapy is well recognized to induce immune responses during some chemotherapeutic drugs-mediated tumor eradication. Here, a strategy involving blocking programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) to enhance the chemotherapeutic effect of a doxorubicin nanoprodrug HA-Psi-DOX is proposed and the synergetic

Anti-inflammatory properties have been ascribed to a series of N-(fluorenyl-9-methoxycarbonyl) amino acids called leumedins that inhibit the activity of granulocytes and T-lymphocytes. We evaluated one of these leumedins, N-(fluorenyl-9-methoxycarbonyl) leucine (NPC 15199), in a model of ileitis in guinea pigs.

The self-assembly and hydrogelation properties of two Fmoc-tripeptides [Fmoc = N-(fluorenyl-9-methoxycarbonyl)] are investigated, in borate buffer and other basic solutions. A remarkable difference in self-assembly properties is observed comparing Fmoc-VLK(Boc) with Fmoc-K(Boc)LV, both containing K protected by N(epsilon)-tert-butyloxycarbonate (Boc). In

The transcriptional corepressor complex CoREST is one of seven histone deacetylase complexes that regulate the genome through controlling chromatin acetylation. The CoREST complex is unique in containing both histone demethylase and deacetylase enzymes, LSD1 and HDAC1, held together by the

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a serious comorbidity in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Since plasma ceramides are increased in NAFLD and sphingomyelin, a ceramide metabolite, is an independent risk factor for CVD, the role of ceramides in dyslipidemia was assessed

In Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells, effect of NPC-15199 on intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) was investigated by using fura-2. NPC-15199 (100-1000 microM) caused a rapid and sustained increase of [Ca2+]i in a concentration-dependent manner (EC50=500 microM). NPC-15199-induced [Ca2+]i rise was

There is a real need for new antibiotics against self-evolving bacteria. One option is to use biofriendly broad-spectrum and mechanically tunable antimicrobial hydrogels that can combat multidrug-resistant microbes. Whilst appealing, there are currently limited options. Herein, broad-spectrum antimicrobial biometallohydrogels based
