An Efficient And Improved Chemical Conversion Of The Natural Product Physachenolide D (LG-01) To Its Analogue LG-134 With Potent Anticancer Activity
Invention: An improved process of chemical conversion of the natural plant product physachenolide D (PCD) to a C-18 analogue (LG-134) of physachenolide C (PCC).Background: The standard yield of LG-134 using current methods is relatively low at 1/3 resultant from original products. This method allows for the yield to be double current chemical processes....

An Alternative Mode of RNA Interference Triggered through Feeding Synthetic RNAs that are Processed into piRNAs
This invention describes a new method of the widely-used RNA interference technique with potential clinical and research applications. Background: RNA interference is a commonly used method to knockdown or “silence” genes. This is typically done using small interfering RNA (siRNA) probes designed with specificity to bind and tag certain...

Specific 17-Beta-Hydroxywithanolides Sensitize Cancer Cells to Apoptosis in Response to Toll-like Receptor (TLR)
This invention describes the use of physachenolide C for cancer treatment through cancer cell apoptosis (cell self-destruction) through extrinsic pathways of “death ligand” proteins. Physachenolide C is a natural product in which the 17-beta-hydroxy group and orientation of the molecule chain result in improved apoptosis sensitivity, with...

Controlled Transfer of Endohyphal Symbionts among Fungal Strains
University of Arizona researchers discovered that diverse endophytic fungi were found to harbor endohyphal bacteria (EHB), which live within apparently healthy, viable fungal cells. Differences in suites of EHB between closely related fungal endophytes suggest horizontal transfer of these symbionts in nature. This relationship appears facultative for...

Semi-Synthetic 17beta-Hydroxywithanolides (17-Bhws) Promote Caspase-8-Dependent Apoptosis in Renal Carcinoma and Melanoma and Specifically Inhibit Human Prostate Cancer Cell Proliferation
This novel, partially naturally-derived compound can be used to treat three different kinds of cancer (melanoma, renal carcinoma, and prostate cancer) in patients without other treatment options. Background: The treatment of all kinds of cancers leaves much to be desired in terms of an efficient treatment that is highly effective and has comparably...
