Anna Stocco, Natalia Smolina, Patrizia Sabatelli, Justina Šileikytė, Edoardo Artusi, Vincent Mouly, Michael Cohen, Michael Forte, Marco Schiavone, Paolo Bernardi,

High-throughput screening identified isoxazoles as potent but metabolically unstable inhibitors of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (PTP). Here we have studied the effects of a metabolically stable triazole analog, TR001, which maintains the PTP inhibitory properties with an in vitro potency in the nanomolar range. We show that TR001 leads ... Read more >>
