    Bestatin, also known as Ubenimex, is a competitive protease inhibitor. It is an inhibitor of aminopeptidase B, leukotriene A4 hydrolase, aminopeptidase N. It is being studied for use in the treatment of acute myelocytic leukemia.
  2. Beta-Lactamase and Microbial Antibiotic Resistance

    Beta-Lactamase and Microbial Antibiotic Resistance
    β-Lactamases continue to be the leading cause of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics among gram-negative bacteria. In recent years there has been an increased incidence and prevalence of extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs), enzymes that hydrolyze and cause resistance to oxyimino-cephalosporins and aztreonam.
  3. What is Thapsigargin? Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Thapsigargin? Frequently Asked Questions
    Thapsigargin is derived from the plant Thapsia garganica that produces tumor promoters. This effect is a result of emptying the intracellular calcium stores, which leads to a chain of events that causes apoptosis. Mechanism of Action Chemical structure of Thapsigargin Thapsigargin is an inhibitor of sarco endoplasmic reticulum Ca2 ATPase (SERCA). It pumps calcium ions from the cytoplasm into the lumen...
  4. RNase A: Frequently Asked Questions

    RNase A: Frequently Asked Questions
    Introduction to RNase Ribonucleases (RNases) are a large group of hydrolytic enzymes that degrade ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules. These are nucleases that catalyze the breakdown of RNA into smaller components. They are a superfamily of enzymes which catalyze the degradation of RNA, operating at the levels of transcription and translation. 3D conformation of ribonuclease A enzyme These enzymes are present...
  5. Rapamycin: Most Commonly Asked Questions

    Rapamycin: Most Commonly Asked Questions
    Discovery of Rapamycin Rapamycin is a macrocyclic triene antibiotic that binds to the cytosolic protein FK-binding protein 12 (FKBP12) and inhibits mTOR pathway by directly binding to the mTOR Complex 1 (mTORC1). It is a potent immunosuppressant having a variety of uses both in vitro and in vivo and is used to prevent organ rejection after transplantation. Chemical structure of...
