History of Hanukkah
The historical significance of Hanukkah dates back to roughly 200 B.C. At this time the Jews were subjected to the rule of Syrian King Antiochus IV, who outlawed their religion and ordered them to worship Greek gods. Through an uprising, led by Judah Maccabee, the Jews drove out their oppressors and restored their temple. Despite having only enough oil left to keep the flames lit for a single day, it lasted eight. Since then, the eight-day Hanukkah celebration remained a yearly tradition, as Jew

5.4 The medical chemistry strategy

The strategy adopted was to start from first principles. Since prazosin is an alpha1 antagonist, it must compete with the agonist, noradrenaline, for the alpha1 receptor. So the Pfizer scientists decided to compare the structures of the two molecules and look for common structural features that might provide an insight into the way in which they bind to the receptor. One important observation was the fact that, at physiological pH, both compounds would be protonated, nor

5.3 Project initiation

In the early 1970s a discovery was made independently by two different researchers, Klaus Starke in Germany and Salomon Langer in Argentina. Their results showed that there were two types of alpha receptor. The first type, which they called alpha1 is the one already described that is found on the blood vessel wall. The second type, which they called alpha2, is located on the nerve-ending itself. Noradrenaline binds to the alpha2 receptors when the alpha
