Enhancing Macrocyclic Diterpenes as Multidrug-Resistance Reversers: Structure–Activity Studies on Jolkinol D Derivatives

The phytochemical study of Euphorbia piscatoria yielded jolkinol D (1) in a large amount, whose derivatization gave rise to 12 ester derivatives (2–13) and hydrolysis to compound 14. The in vitro modulation of P-gp of compounds 1–14 was evaluated through Read more ›

Insights on P-Glycoprotein’s Efflux Mechanism Obtained by Molecular Dynamics Simulations

P-Glycoprotein (P-gp) is often involved in multidrug resistance (MDR) to the pharmacological action of a wide number of anticancer agents. In this article, a series of molecular dynamics simulations of murine’s P-gp were developed, elucidating the importance of the lipid Read more ›
