The crystal structure of diethyl 4-(biphenyl-4-yl)-2,6-dimethyl-1,4-dihydropyridine-3,5-dicarboxylate was solved using Ithaca College’s single crystal X-ray diffractometer. The compound was synthesized by our collaborators at the University of Montana.
1,4-dihydropyridines (DHPs) are an extensively studied class of compounds that are known predominantly for their L-type gated calcium channel modulation. There have been extensive structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies done on DHPs that have revealed the basic structural requirements for robust binding affinity to calcium channels. Other studies in the field have shown DHPs bind to multiple receptors, most notably the multiple drug resistant protein 1 (MDR1).

Matthew Holtmeier, postdoctoral teaching fellow in Screen Studies, authored an article in the anthology Cinematic Homecomings: Exile and Return in Transnational Cinema.
His piece, titled "Burning Straw Men: The 1979 Revolution and Bahman Farmanara's Stubborn Cosmopolitanism," explores director Bahman Farmanara's departure from Iran due to the 1979 revolution, and his subsequent return after working as a producer abroad. The films Farmanara made after returning to Iran illustrate the director's 'stubborn cosmopolitanism,' despite the newly structured sense of national identity in post-revolution Iran.
