Design, synthesis and biological evaluation of new small-molecule modulators of Protein Methyltransferases (PMTs)
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2016-04-21)
A large amount of evidences indicate that dysregulation of protein methylation is linked to the genesis and progression of several human diseases, including cancer. Therefore over the past years small-molecule modulators ...
Biomolecular and biophysical approaches to interrogate epigenetic targets: a platform for drug discovery
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2016-04-20)
The term epigenetics refers to heritable changes in gene expression that do not involve changes in the DNA sequence. A large number of enzymes, which act mainly on histone tails and DNA, carries out epigenetic modifications, ...
Synthesis of novel ligands for the stabilization of organometallic complexes having potential antitumor activity
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2016-05-04)
The design of new metal complexes as anticancer agents has received considerable interest in recent years. Complexes of titanium (e.g.: titanocene dichloride), lanthanides complexes (e.g.: texaphyrrins lanthanide) and ...
Design and synthesis of modulators of apoptotic activity
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2016-03-23)
p53 is a transcription factor with tumour suppressor properties, which is able to induce mitochondrial apoptosis independently of its transcriptional activity. Analogues of the spiro[imidazo[1,5-c] thiazole-3,3′-indoline] ...
