      Martínez Aguayo, Alejandro; Campino, Carmen; Baudrand, René; Carvajal, Cristian; Garcia, Hernán; Aglony, Marlene; Bancalari, Rodrigo; García Nannig, Lorena; Loureiro, Carolina; Vecchiola, Andrea; Tapia Castillo, Alejandra; Valdivia, Carolina; Sanhueza, Sebastián; Fuentes, Cristóbal; Lagos, Carlos F.; Solari, Sandra; Allende, Fidel; Kalergis, Alexis; Fardella, Carlos E. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2016)
      Objective: To identify novel biomarkers associated with pediatric primary hypertension. Methods: We recruited 350 participants (4-16 years). Anthropometric parameters and aldosterone, plasma renin activity, cortisol, ...
    • Design, synthesis, binding and docking-based 3D-QSAR studies of 2-pyridylbenzimidazoles - A new family of high affinity CB1 cannabinoid ligands 

      Mella Raipán, Jaime A.; Lagos, Carlos F.; Recabarren Gajardo, Gonzalo Iván; Espinosa Bustos, Christian; Romero Parra, Javier; Pessoa Mahana, Hernán; Iturriaga-Vásquez, Patricio; Pessoa Mahana, Carlos David (2013)
      A series of novel 2-pyridylbenzimidazole derivatives was rationally designed and synthesized based on our previous studies on benzimidazole 14, a CB1 agonist used as a template for optimization. In the present series, 21 ...

    • Design, synthesis, biological evaluation and binding mode modeling of benzimidazole derivatives targeting the cannabinoid receptor type 1 

      Espinosa Bustos, Christian; Lagos, Carlos F.; Romero Parra, Javier; Zárate, Ana M.; Mella Raipán, Jaime A.; Pessoa Mahana, Hernán; Recabarren Gajardo, Gonzalo Iván; Iturriaga-Vásquez, Patricio; Tapia, Ricardo A.; Pessoa Mahana, Carlos David (Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2015)
      © 2015 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA. A series of N-acyl-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl-1H-benzimidazoles were designed based on a CoMFA model for cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1) ligands. Compounds were synthesized and radioligand ...
    • Polymorphisms in the RAC1 gene are associated with hypertension risk factors in a chilean pediatric population 

      Tapia Castillo, Alejandra; Carvajal, Cristian A.; Campino, Carmen; Vecchiola, Andrea; Allende, Fidel; Solari, Sandra; García Nannig, Lorena; Lavandero González, Sergio; Valdivia, Carolina; Fuentes, Cristobal; Lagos, Carlos F.; Martínez Aguayo, Alejandro; Baudrand, René; Aglony, Marlene; García, Hernán; Fardella, Carlos E. (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      The GTPase Rac1 has been implicated in hypertension as a modulator of mineralocorticoid receptor activity. Our aim is to investigate the frequency of polymorphisms rs10951982 (intron 1, G>A) and rs836478 (intron 3, T>C) ...
    • Sodium intake is associated with endothelial damage biomarkers and metabolic dysregulation 

      Campino, Carmen; Baudrand, Rene; Valdivia, Carolina; Carvajal, Cristian; Vecchiola, Andrea; Tapia Castillo, Alejandra; Martínez Aguayo, Alejandro; Garcia, Hernán; García Nannig, Lorena; Allende, Fidel; Solari, Sandra; Fuentes, Cristóbal; Lagos, Carlos; Rojas, Maria; Muñoz, Doris; Fardella, Carlos (Oxford University Press, 2018)
      BACKGROUND : Mounting evidence has associated high sodium (HS) intake with hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. We investigated whether HS intake modulates the parameters of endothelial damage, inflammation, ...
