Sphingosine kinase inhibition ameliorates chronic hypoperfusion-induced white matter lesions

530 views | Nov 10 2017

Yang Y et al. suggested a mechanism for hypoperfusion-associated WML involving HIF-1α-SphK2-S1P-mediated disruption of OPC differentiation, and proposes the SphK signaling pathway as a potential therapeutic target for white matter disease. [Read the Full Post]

Cytokine correlation analysis based on drug perturbation

2029 views | Oct 17 2017

Wallner FK et al. showed that cytokines are highly co-regulated, which provide valuable information for how a therapeutic drug might affect clusters of cytokines. In addition, a cytokine that is used as a therapeutic biomarker could be combined with its related cytokines into a biomarker panel to improve diagnostic accuracy. [Read the Full Post]

FTY720 – THE IMMUNE CELLS CONTROLLER

2624 views | Apr 11 2012

FTY720: One of the extensively used immunoregulatory drug is Fingolimod, FTY720 is the code for this drug and it is a product of Novartis. The properties like anti-tumor actions and immunosuppressant activities made FTY720 Fingolimod a new hope against the debilitating diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis. FTY720 price for 100mg is around $40. Like many other compounds it is not soluble in water but a reasonable solubility of concentration of 100mg/ml can be attained using organic solvents such as DMSO and ethanol. Structurally FTY720 is an analogue of sphingosine molecule due to which this molecule has the capability to act on sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor, this report has been confirmed by gene deletion and reverse pharmacology studies. Various chemical modifications have been made with FTY720 in order to enhance its efficiency and to take it in clinical trials based on different diseases. If anyone wants to purchase FTY720 for laboratory and clinical uses one can order FTY720 to any FTY720 suppliers. IC50 of this drug is about 0.13 nM. [Read the Full Post]

The regulation of sphingosine-1-phosphate metabolism

3920 views | Oct 20 2011

Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a signaling sphingolipid and is also referred to as a bioactive lipid mediator. Functions of S1P are mediated by its binding to a class of G-protein coupled receptors of the S1P and Lysophospholipid (LPA) receptor families, and regulate a variety of cell signaling pathways, including cell growth, differentiation, survival, and apoptosis. Many factors in the metabolism pathway of S1P have been considered as potential targets for therapeutic intervention, including the inhibition of S1P activation of the G-protein coupled receptors.
