Systems pharmacology of the endocannabinoid system
In this thesis, a system pharmacology approach, integrating metabolomics, pharmacology and chemical biology, was applied to understand and modulate the endocannabinoid system across different model systems (cells, zebrafish, mice and humans).
Lipids as therapeutic targets for barrier repair in skin diseases
The skin is our natural barrier and lipids are a key part of this barrier. In the outer skin layer, the stratum corneum (SC), lipids form a densely organized structure dependent on the composition of these lipids.
Assistant Professor at the Metabolomics group, LUMC, The Nederlands
Medical Biochemistry is a section of the Leiden Institute of Chemistry at Leiden University. The section is headed by Prof. Dr. Hans Aerts.
Discovery of a NAPE-PLD inhibitor that modulates emotional behavior in mice, Nat. Chem. Biol. 2020
N-acylethanolamines (NAEs), which include the endocannabinoid anandamide, represent an important family of signaling lipids in the brain. The lack of chemical probes that modulate NAE biosynthesis in living systems hamper the understanding of the biological role of these lipids.
Rapid and profound rewiring of brain lipid signaling networks by acute diacylglycerol lipase inhibition
Diacylglycerol lipases (DAGLα and DAGLβ) convert diacylglycerol to the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol. Our understanding of DAGL function has been hindered by a lack of chemical probes that can perturb these enzymes in vivo.
Key publications of the Analytical BioSciences and Metabolomics group
Illuminating N-acylethanolamine biosynthesis with new chemical tools
In this thesis, the discovery and optimization is described of chemical tools to study the N-acylethanolamine (NAE) biosynthetic pathway.
Chemical biology of sphingolipids: fundamental studies and clinical applications
Activity-based protein profiling in drug discovery
In the last decades, activity-based protein profiling (ABPP) has emerged as a powerful chemical tool that may aid the ever-challenging drug discovery process.
Discovery of Reversible Monoacylglycerol Lipase Inhibitors
Monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) is the principal enzyme responsible for hydrolysis of the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). MAGL inhibition provides several potential therapeutic opportunities, including anti-nociceptive, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer activity.
