Mucosal absorption of therapeutic peptides by harnessing the endogenous sorting of glycosphingolipids
(eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2018-11-09)
Transport of biologically active molecules across tight epithelial barriers is a major challenge preventing therapeutic peptides from oral drug delivery. Here, we identify a set of synthetic glycosphingolipids that harness ...
Monoamine Biosynthesis via a Noncanonical Calcium-Activatable Aromatic Amino Acid Decarboxylase in Psilocybin Mushroom
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 2018-11-28)
Aromatic l-amino acid decarboxylases (AAADs) are a phylogenetically diverse group of enzymes responsible for the decarboxylation of aromatic amino acid substrates into their corresponding aromatic arylalkylamines. AAADs ...
Fracture in drug‐eluting stents increases focal intimal hyperplasia in the atherosclerosed rabbit iliac artery
Objectives: Drug-eluting stent (DES) strut fracture (SF) is associated with higher incidence of In-stent restenosis (ISR)—return of blockage in a diseased artery post stenting—than seen with bare metal stents (BMS). We ...
Identification of a transporter complex responsible for the cytosolic entry of nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates
(eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd, 2018-05-10)
Nitrogen-containing-bisphosphonates (N-BPs) are a class of drugs widely prescribed to treat osteoporosis and other bone-related diseases. Although previous studies have established that N-BPs function by inhibiting the ...
