Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Salts of pyridazino[2,3-a]pyrrolo[2,1-c]quinoxaline for the treatment of leishmania infections and diseases that involve the protein tyrosine phosphatise 1B (metabolic syndrome, diabetes and obesity)Research groups from the Department of Organic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry and the Department of Systems Biology of the University of Alcalá have developed pyridazino[2,3-a]pirrolo[2,1-c]-quinoxalinium salts as therapeutic agents in the treatment of leishmaniasis, metabolic syndrome, diabetes and obesity. The compounds exhibit high activity and selectivity for the Leishmania parasite, and they provide a new therapeutic tool for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. The group seeks pharmaceutical companies to reach licensing agreements or collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Centre Technology Transfer CITTRU posted this:Staphylococcus pseudintermedius & bacteriocins – various applicationsThe subject of the present offer is new bacterial strain Staphylococcus pseudintermedius Sp222, isolated from dog pathologic dermal lesions. The offer includes also peptide and protein bacteriocins produced by S. pseudintermedius Sp222. These bacteriocins exhibit a broad spectrum of biological activities: - bacteriocin BacSp222 is able to kill a variety of Gram+ bacteria strains, including the methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strain. It is also cytotoxic towards selected eukaryotic cells and is resistant to action of proteolytic enzymes (either eukaryotic or prokaryotic) as well as to high temperature. The biological activity of BacSp222 is sustained even after limited fragmentation of its molecule by chemical reagents; - lysostaphin Sp222 has an ability to effectively lyse (and, in consequence, to kill) the cells of Gram+ bacteria.
