Loss of the Phenolic Hydroxyl Group and Aromaticity from the Side Chain of Anti-Proliferative 10-Methyl-aplog-1, a Simplified Analog of Aplysiatoxin, Enhances Its Tumor-Promoting and Proinflammatory Activities. Molecules. 2017;22: pubmed publisher..However, the translocation profiles for PKC?-GFP due to induction by 1-3 were similar. ..

Bioorg Med Chem. 2018;: pubmed publisher..These results demonstrate that extension of the conjugated system in 1 by autoxidation can promote its planarity, which is required for intercalation into the Î²-sheet of AÎ²42 nuclei, thereby suppressing further aggregation. ..
- Hanaki Y, Shikata Y, Kikumori M, Hotta N, Imoto M, Irie K. Identification of protein kinase C isozymes involved in the anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic activities of 10-Methyl-aplog-1, a simplified analog of debromoaplysiatoxin, in several cancer cell lines. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2018;495:438-445 pubmed publisher..Since the mechanism underlying 10-Me-aplog-1's anti-proliferative activities resembles that of DAT, 10-Me-aplog-1 may be regarded as a special key derived from pleiotropic DAT as a bunch of keys. ..
