A facile one-pot method has been developed for the synthesis of novel pyrrolo[2,1-a]pyrazine scaffolds. A variety of 1-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrrolo[1,2-a]pyrazine derivatives were obtained in moderate to high yields in methanol using a one-pot four-component condensation of 1-(2-bromoethyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carbaldehyde, amine, isocyanide and sodium azide at room temperature. These reactions presumably proceed via a domino imine formation, intramolecular annulation and Ugi-azide reaction. Unambiguous assignment of the molecular structures was carried out by single-crystal X-ray diffraction...

Human genome project unveiled that only 1.5.-2.0.% of the genome is protein coding. ENCODE and related studies showed that most part of the genome transcribed into RNAs, and most of them do not code for a functional proteins, hence the name non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). ncRNAs are small ncRNAs (less than 200 nucleotides) and long ncRNAs (longer than 200 nucleotides up to 10 kb). They act as a direct link between highly ordered chromosome structures, gene expression and serve as a bridge between genome and chromatin modification complexes as guides, scaffolds, and decoys...

BACKGROUND: Heat shock protein90 (Hsp90) are overexpressed in tumor cells, so the inhibition of the Hsp90 ATPase activity would be a significantly effective strategy in cancer therapy. METHODS: In the current study, 3,4-isoxazolediamide derivatives were suggested as an Hsp90 inhibitor for anti-cancer therapy. Multiple linear regression (MLR) and genetic algorithm of partial least square (GA-PLS) methods were performed to build models to predict the inhibitory activity of Hsp90...

Heat shock protein 90(Hsp90), as a molecular chaperone, play a crucial role in folding and proper function of many proteins. Hsp90 inhibitors containing isoxazole scaffold are currently being used in the treatment of cancer as tumor suppressers. Here in the present studies, new compounds based on isoxazole scaffold were predicted using a combination of molecular modeling techniques including three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship (3D-QSAR), molecular docking and molecular dynamic (MD) simulations...

The conventional covalently cross-linked double network (DN) hydrogels with high stiffness often show low toughness and self-healing property due to the irreversible bond breakages in their networks. Therefore, scarcity of hydrogels that possess simultaneous features of stiffness, toughness, and autonomous self-healing properties at the same time remains a great challenge and seriously limits their biomedical applications. While, many natural materials acquire these features from their dynamic sacrificial bonds...

Collagen is the single most abundant protein in the extracellular matrix in the animal kingdom, with remarkable structural and functional diversity and regarded one of the most useful biomaterials. Etymologically, the term collagen comes from Greek kola 'glue' and gen 'giving birth to'. Thus, it is not surprising that the various collagens and the structures they form all serve the same purpose, to help tissues withstand stretching. Among the functions the various collagens are involved in are cell adhesion and migration, tissue repair, scaffolding and morphogenesis...

Soil-borne plant pathogens such as nematodes, fungi and some bacteria not only affect the plant cultures but also economy and environmental implications. As a result of these pathogens attacks, the yield and quality of crops is affected. Therefore, synthesis of new compounds to control these pathogens is very important and need of time. Chromenes are considered important group of heterocyclic compounds and exhibited significant biological activities. 2-amino-3-cyano chromenes are considered important medicinal scaffolds among the chromenes...

Somatic missense mutations in the Ser/Thr protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) Aα scaffold subunit gene PPP2R1A are among the few genomic alterations that occur frequently in serous endometrial carcinoma (EC) and carcinosarcoma, two clinically aggressive subtypes of uterine cancer with few therapeutic options. Previous studies reported that cancer-associated Aα mutants exhibit defects in binding to other PP2A subunits and contribute to cancer development by a mechanism of haploinsufficiency. Here we report on the functional significance of the most recurrent PPP2R1A mutations in human EC, which cluster in Aα HEAT repeats 5 and 7...

Heat shock protein90s (Hsp90s) play a crucial role in the development of cancer, and their inhibitors are a main target for tumor suppression. P53 also is a tumor suppressor, but in cancer cells, mutations in the p53 gene lead to the inactivation and accumulation of protein. For instance, the ninth p53 cancer mutation, Y220C, destabilizes the p53 core domain. Small molecules have been assumed to bind to Y220C DNA-binding domain and reactivate cellular mutant p53 functions. In this study, one of the mutant p53 activators is suggested as an Hsp90 inhibitor according to a pyrazole scaffold...

Neural differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells in combination with three-dimensional electrospun nanofibers as an artificial extracellular matrix can be utilized to reconstruct a spinal cord defect. In this study, random and parallel-aligned nanofibrous poly ɛ-caprolactone was fabricated using electrospinning. Its hydrophobicity was modified by O2 plasma treatment to facilitate enhanced cell attachment. Embryoid bodies (EBs), which contain all three embryonic germ layers, were cultured on poly ɛ-caprolactone scaffolds to study the effect of fiber orientation on cell morphology and differentiation...

This presentation discloses a one-pot synthesis of a series of spiropyrroloquinoline isoindolinone and spiropyrroloquinoline aza-isoindolinone scaffolds. The reaction proceeds by the combination of a Ugi four-component reaction (4CR) and two intramolecular cyclizations under metal-free conditions. The proof of the structures relies on analytical investigation and X-ray crystallography.

BACKGROUND: MMP-2 enzyme is a kind of matrix metalloproteinases that digests the denatured collagens and gelatins. It is highly involved in the process of tumor invasion and has been considered as a promising target for cancer therapy. The structural requirements of an MMP-2 inhibitor are: (1) a functional group that binds the zinc ion, and (2) a functional group which interacts with the enzyme backbone and the side chains which undergo effective interactions with the enzyme subsites...

Freeze-drying is extensively used for fabrication of porous materials in tissue engineering and biomedical applications, due to its versatility and use of no toxic solvent. However, it has some significant drawbacks. Conventional freeze-drying technique leads to the production of heterogeneous porous structures with side orientated columnar pores. As the top and bottom surfaces of the sample are not in contact with similar environments, different rates of heat transfer in the surfaces and the temperature gradient across the sample establish the preferential direction of heat transfer...

A combined freeze-drying and particulate leaching method for scaffold synthesis showed an improvement in the horizontal microstructure of the gelatin/chitosan scaffolds. Type and concentration of the cross-linking agent, freezing temperature, concentration of the polymeric solution and gelatin/chitosan weight ratio were the variables affecting the scaffold properties. Assessment of the tensile properties of the scaffolds revealed that for a scaffold with 50% chitosan, glutaraldehyde, as a cross-linking agent, created much tighter polymeric network compared to N,N-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-N'-ethyl carbodiimide (EDC)...

Here we report for the first time the design and expression of highly charged, unfolded protein polymers based on elastin-like peptides (ELPs). Positively and negatively charged variants were achieved by introducing lysine and glutamic acid residues, respectively, within the repetitive pentapeptide units. Subsequently it was demonstrated that the monodisperse protein polyelectrolytes with precisely defined amino acid compositions, sequences, and stereochemistries can be transferred into superstructures exploiting their electrostatic interactions...

Colloidal nanocrystal (NC) donors wrapped with a polymer coating including multiple organic acceptor molecules are promising scaffolds for fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET)-based nanobiosensors. Over other self-assembling donor-acceptor configurations, our preloaded polymers have the virtue of producing compact assemblies with a fixed donor/acceptor distance. This property, together with the possibility of stoichiometric polymer loading, allowed us to directly address how the FRET efficiency depended on the donor/acceptor...
