• A Promising Cancer Therapy: Thapsigargin’s Anti-Cancer Roles 2016-12-06 16:00:21 Thapsia Garganica is a common Mediterranean weed, but highly toxic to sheep and cattle, thus earning the nickname “death carrot”. Thapsigargin is a natural cytotoxin derived from the plant Thapsia Graganica. Oncologists Samuel Denmeade at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore and his team has exte
  • What is Thapsigargin: Thapsigargin FAQ 2016-12-02 17:51:00 Thapsigargin is a naturally occurring tumor promoter derived from the plant Thapsia garganica. This effect is a result of emptying the intracellular calcium stores, which leads to a chain of events that causes apoptosis. What is Thapsigargin? Thapsigargin is a naturally occurring sesquiterpene lact

  • Beta Lactamase Inhibitors in Research: Anti-Seizure 2016-10-24 16:00:22 Beta-lactam antibiotics contain a cyclic amide ring of which mimics the structure of the terminal amino acid residues comprising the peptidoglycan matrix. It is this structure that the enzyme beta lactamase acts upon as a method of antibiotic defense, hydrolyzing the ring and compromising the struct

  • Top 7 FAQs for Beta Lactamase enzyme 2016-08-19 16:00:38 As a core structure in many antibiotics, beta lactam ring is a cyclic amide. Beta lactam antibiotics almost universally inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis and thus induces the destruction of the bacteria cell. Bacteria have evolved an enzyme that combats this antibiotic and increases resistance
