Abstract

Ovothiols are histidine-derived thiols that are receiving a great interest for their biological activities in human model systems. Thanks to the position of the thiol group on the imidazole ring of histidine, these compounds exhibit unusual antioxidant properties. They have been reveali...read more

Biosynthetic Transformations

Biosyntheic transformtions are multi-step, enzyme-catalyzed processes where substrates are converted into more complex products in living organisms. Simple compounds are modified, converted into other compounds, or joined together to form macromolecules. Discover the latest research on biosynthetic transformations here.

DNA Methylation

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism of gene regulation, and dysregulation of DNA methylation has been associated with tumorigenesis. Discover the latest research on DNA methylation here.

PARP Inhibitors

PARP inhibitors are a novel type of therapeutic agent being investigated for the treatment of some cancer types, particularly targeting tumors that are deficient in the homologous recombination DNA repair pathway. They have shown promise in BRCA mutations in breast cancer. Discover the latest research on PARP inhibitors here.
