Syntrix Publication in Journal of Medicinal Chemistry

Congratulations to Syntrix scientists on their latest publication, which appeared in the ACS Journal of Medicinal Chemistry.  Abstract: The G protein-coupled chemokine receptors CXCR1 and CXCR2 play key roles in inflammatory diseases and carcinogenesis.  In inflammation, they activate and recruit polymorphonuclear cells (PMNs) through binding of the chemokines CXCL1 (CXCR1) and CXCL8 (CXCR1 and CXCR2).  […]

Syntrix Reports the Cellular Mechanism of Compounds It Discovered to Treat COPD and Lung Disease in Neonates

Congratulations to Syntrix scientists and their collaborators at Montana State University on their latest publication in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. Signficance: These studies demonstrate that compounds discovered by Syntrix to treat COPD and lung disease in neonates work by inhibiting CXCR1/2, G-protein coupled receptors, via a novel intracellular mechanism. Abstract: The chemokine receptors CXCR1/2 are […]
