A series of nitroflavones, 8a-p, and their corresponding aminoflavone hydrochloride salts, 10a-p, was synthesized. The preparation of nitroflavones 8b-i,o,p began with commercially available o-hydroxyacetophenones 2b-f which were converted to o-hydroxynitroacetophenones 3a-h via a variety of nitration methods, followed by condensation with nitrobenzoyl chlorides and cyclization under acidic condition. The nitroflavones 8aj-n were prepared by nitration of the corresponding flavones 7a-e. These new compounds were evaluated for their abilities to inhibit the in vitro protein-tyrosine kinase activities of p56lck, EGFr, and p60v-src, and all of the active compounds were amino-substituted flavones. None of the nitroflavones inhibited the enzymes. The most active substance in this series against p56lck was compound 10j, which had an IC50 of 18 microM. When tested versus EGFr, compounds 10a,m displayed IC50's of 8.7 and 7.8 microM, respectively. Against p60v-src, 10a,m showed IC50 values of 28.8 and 38.4 microM, respectively.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
