In vitro effects of bioactive extracts of local Italian cultivars: from molecular mechanisms to potential nutraceutical applications for consumers’ well-being
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2017-03-31)
Phytochemicals are non-nutritional compounds, naturally present in food and beverages, which exert beneficial effects on human health. The present Doctorate Thesis evaluates the biological properties of bioactive ...
Design, synthesis and biological evaluation of new small-molecule modulators of proein lysine methyltransferases (PKMTs)
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2018-04-20)
Histone lysine methyltransferases have crucial roles in a number of biological processes and human diseases by controlling gene expression and chromatin state. Within this family, the lysine methyltransferase G9a has emerged ...
NMR-based metabolomic analysis of biological fluids to monitor relevant unsolved diseases
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2017-03-30)
Metabolomics and metabonomics encompass the comprehensive profiling of multiple metabolite concentrations and their cellular and systemic fluctuations in response to drugs, diet, lifestyle, environment, stimuli and genetic ...
Design and synthesis of bioactive small molecules by traditional and innovative methods
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2018-03-28)
My PhD research plan concerns the exploration of the structural requirements determining TRPM8 modulation. We prepared a series of N-substituted tryptamines and identified two compounds acting, respectively, as an activator ...
Structural investigation of gp36-MPER in membrane mimicking systems
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2019-05-07)
FIV is a lentivirus that resembles the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The lentiviral envelope glycoproteins (gp41 in HIV and gp36 in FIV) mediate virus entry by interacting with specific receptors present at the cell ...
