Establishment of LCMS Based Platform for Discovery of Quorum Sensing Inhibitors: Signal Detection in Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1
Targeting the main three networking systems, viz. Las, RhI, and PQS, via natural quenchers is a new ray of hope for combating the persistent behavior of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In the bacterial chemical vocabulary pyocyanin, N-AHLs and rhamnolipids are the main keywords, which are responsible for the social and nomadic behavior of P. aeruginosa. In the present work, LC-MS based real-time qualitative and quantitative analysis of pyocyanin, green phenazine, N-AHLs, and rhamnolipids were performed on P. aeruginosa PAO1. The quantitative analysis indicates that the production of pyocyanin and NHSLs increases with time while the production of rhamnolipids discontinued after 16 h. This indicates the emergence of persisters in the medium instead of planktonic cells. Rhamnolipids acting as a surfactant enhances the motility of the bacterial cells, whereas the pyocyanin is responsible for the biofilm formation. In a microtiter plate based assay, an effect of capsaicin and 6-gingerol was recorded. In the presence o...

Chemokine receptor CXCR4 plays an important role in cancer cell invasion and metastasis. Recent findings suggest that anti-VEGF therapies upregulate CXCR4 expression, which contributes to resistance to antiangiogenic therapies. Here, we report the development of novel derivatives of polyeth ... mehr
The molecular structures of three parthenolide analogues, (−)-goyazensolide (1), (−)-15-deoxygoyazensolide (2), and (−)-ereglomerulide (3), isolated from the leaves of Piptocoma rufescens in a previous study were determined by X-ray analysis, and the absolute configuration of (−)-goyazensol ... mehr
The molecular integration of poorly water soluble active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) in a suitable polymeric matrix is a possible approach to enhance the dissolution behavior and solubility of these APIs. Like all newly developed pharmaceutical formulations, these formulations (often ... mehr
