ABSTRACT In an ongoing effort to study the environmental fate of endocrine-active steroid hormones, we report the formation of phenolic rearrangement products (3 and 4) with a novel 6,5,8,5-ring system following aqueous photolysis of dienogest (1) and methyldienolone(2). The structures were established by analysis of 2D NMR and HRMS data, and that of 3 was
ABSTRACT Exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals is an established risk factor for obesity. The most commonly used pesticide active ingredients have never been tested in an adipogenesis assay. We tested for the first time the potential of glyphosate, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, dicamba, mesotrione, isoxaflutole and quizalofop-p-ethyl (QpE) to induce lipid accumulation in murine 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Only
ABSTRACT The development and evaluation of selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) is of interest because of the complex and significant role of estrogen receptors in normal tissues as well as disease states. In neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis, estrogen receptor beta (ERβ) seems to provide a protective anti-inflammatory response. Due to

From our understanding today, there are many environmental chemicals that carry the potential to affect the endocrine system. Known as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), these compounds alter drug and xenobiotic metabolic processes and can interfere with the production, release, metabolism, and elimination of natural hormones. Through the examination of suspected endocrine and metabolic disruptors and
ABSTRACT For oligonucleotide therapeutics, chemical modifications of the sugar-phosphate backbone are frequently used to confer drug-like properties. Because 2′-deoxy-2′-fluoro (2′-F) nucleotides are not known to occur naturally, their safety profile was assessed when used in revusiran and ALN-TTRSC02, two short interfering RNAs (siRNAs), of the same sequence but different chemical modification pattern and metabolic stability,
ABSTRACT Takeda G protein-coupled receptor 5 (TGR5) agonists induce systemic release of glucagon-like peptides (GLPs) from intestinal L cells, a potentially therapeutic action against metabolic diseases such as nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and Type 2 diabetes. Historically, TGR5 agonist use has been hindered by side effects, including inhibition of gallbladder emptying.
ABSTRACT This invention is a benzothiophene estrogen receptor modulator or its pharmaceutically acceptable salt or a pharmaceutically acceptable composition thereof to treat an estrogen-related medical disorder.

Structures and biological activities of new carnosic acid- and carnosol-related compounds generated by heat treatment of rosemary
ABSTRACTCarnosic acid (CA) and carnosol (CS) are components of rosemary reported to possess antioxidative and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) transcriptional activities that are useful for preventing metabolic disorders. The aims of this study were to identify new bioactive compounds in heated rosemary and examine their effects on antioxidative stress and PPARγ activation. In heated
ABSTRACT The importance of gut microbiota in human health and pathophysiology is undisputable. Despite the abundance of metagenomics data, the functional dynamics of gut microbiota in human health and disease remain elusive. Urolithin A (UroA), a major microbial metabolite derived from polyphenolics of berries and pomegranate fruits displays anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and anti-ageing activities. Here, we
