Liposomes are known to be promising nanoparticles (NPs) for drug delivery applications. Among different types of self-assembled NPs, liposomes stand out for their non-toxic nature, and their possession of dual hydrophilic-hydrophobic domains. Advantages of liposomes include the ability to solubilize hydrophobic drugs, the ability to incorporate different hydrophilic and lipophilic drugs at the same time, lessening the exposure of host organs to potentially toxic drugs and allowing modification of the surface by a variety of different chemical groups. This modification of the surface, or of the individual constituents, may be used to achieve two important goals. Firstly, ligands for active...

Application of genetic algorithm-kernel partial least square as a novel nonlinear feature selection method: Activity of carbonic anhydrase II inhibitors, Article European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry ; Volume 42, Issue 5 , 2007 , Pages 649-659 ; 02235234 (ISSN) ; Kyani, A ; Sharif University of Technology
This paper introduces the genetic algorithm-kernel partial least square (GA-KPLS), as a novel nonlinear feature selection method. This technique combines genetic algorithms (GAs) as powerful optimization methods with KPLS as a robust nonlinear statistical method for variable selection. This feature selection method is combined with artificial neural network to develop a nonlinear QSAR model for predicting activities of a series of substituted aromatic sulfonamides as carbonic anhydrase II (CA II) inhibitors. Eight simple one- and two-dimensional descriptors were selected by GA-KPLS and considered as inputs for developing artificial neural networks (ANNs). These parameters represent the role...
Experimental investigation of rheological and morphological properties of water in crude oil emulsions stabilized by a lipophilic surfactant, Article Journal of Dispersion Science and Technology ; Volume 34, Issue 3 , Feb , 2013 , Pages 356-368 ; 01932691 (ISSN) ; Ramazani, S. A. A ; Taghikhani, V ; Ghotbi, C ; Sharif University of Technology
Rheological behavior of two crude oils and their surfactant-stabilized emulsions with initial droplet sizes ranging from 0.5 to 75 μm were investigated at various temperatures under steady and dynamic shear testing conditions. In order to evaluate the morphology and Stability of emulsions, microscopic analysis was carried out over three months and average diameter and size distribution of dispersed droplets were determined. The water content and surfactant concentration ranged from 10 to 60% vol/vol and 0.1 to 10% wt/vol, respectively. The results indicated that the rheological properties and the physical structure and stability of emulsions were significantly influenced by the water content...

Formation of the amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide aggregations represents an indispensable role in appearing and progression of Alzheimer disease. β-sheet breaker peptides can be designed and modified with different amino acids in order to improve biological properties and binding affinity to the amyloid beta peptide. In the present study, three peptide sequences were designed based on the hopeful results of LIAIMA peptide and molecular docking studies were carried out onto the monomer and fibril structure of amyloid beta peptide using AutoDock Vina software. According to the obtained interactions and binding energy from docking, the best-designed peptide (D-GABA-FPLIAIMA) was chosen and...
Efficient synthesis of novel coumarin-3-carboxamides (=2-oxo-2h-1- benzopyran-3-carboxamides) containing lipophilic spacers, Article Helvetica Chimica Acta ; Volume 95, Issue 3 , 2012 , Pages 528-535 ; 0018019X (ISSN) ; Bigdeli, M. A ; Sheikhhosseini, E ; Habibi, A ; Moghadam, H. P ; Naderi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
The novel coumarin-3-carboxamides (=2-oxo-2H-1-benzopyran-3-carboxamides) 5a-5g containing lipophilic spacers were synthesized through the Ugi-four-component reaction (Scheme 1). The reactions of aromatic aldehydes 1, 4,4'-oxybis[benzenamine] or 4,4'-methylenebis[benzenamine] as diamine 2, coumarin-3-carboxylic acid (=2-oxo-2H-benzopyran-3-carboxylic acid; 3), and alkyl isocyanides 4 lead to the desired substituted coumarin-3-carboxamides 5a-5g at room temperature with high bond-forming efficiency. These novel coumarin derivatives exhibit brilliant fluorescence at 544 nm in CHCl 3
