A series of benzoxazinones 1-28 were synthesized via reaction of anthranilic acid with various substituted benzoyl chlorides in the presence of triethylamine in chloroform. Compounds 1-18 showed a good inhibition of α-chymotrypsin with IC50±SEM values between 6.5 and 341.1μM. Preliminary structure-activity relationships studies indicated that the presence of substituents on benzene ring reduces the inhibitory potential of benzoxazinone. Also the increased inhibitory potential due to fluoro group at phenyl substituent was observed followed by chloro and bromo substituents...

Current research is based on the synthesis of novel (E)-4-aryl-2-(2-(pyren-1-ylmethylene)hydrazinyl)thiazole derivatives (3-15) by adopting two steps route. First step was the condensation between the pyrene-1-carbaldehyde (1) with the thiosemicarbazide to afford pyrene-1-thiosemicarbazone intermediate (2). While in second step, cyclization between the intermediate (2) and phenacyl bromide derivatives or 2-bromo ethyl acetate was carried out. Synthetic derivatives were structurally characterized by spectroscopic techniques such as EI-MS, (1)H NMR and (13)C NMR...

In this work, novel chromenones linked to 1,2,3-triazole ring system were synthesized and evaluated for their anti-ChE activity. Among them, N-((1-(2-chlorobenzyl)-1H-1,2,3-triazol-5-yl)methyl)-8-methoxy-2-oxo-2H-chromene-3-carboxamide (6m) showed good anti-acetylcholinesterase activity (IC50=15.42μM). Also, compound 6m demonstrated neuroprotective effect against H2O2-induced cell death in PC12 neurons, however, it showed no beta-secretase (BACE1) inhibitory activity. Docking and kinetic studies separately confirmed dual binding activity of compound 6m since it targeted both the catalytic active site (CAS) and the peripheral anionic site (PAS) of AChE...

Thymidine phosphorylase (TP) catalyzes the cleavage of thymidine into thymine and 2-deoxy-α-d-ribose-1-phosphate. Elevated activity of TP prevents apoptosis, and induces angiogenesis which ultimately leads to tumor growth and metastasis. Critical role of TP in cancer progression makes it a valid target in anti-cancer research. Discovery of small molecules as TP inhibitors is vigorously pursued in cancer therapy. In the present study, we functionalized thymidine as benzoyl ester to synthesize compounds 3-16...

A new series of 1,3,5-triaryl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole 10a-l was designed and synthesized via cyclization of chalcones 8a-f with 4-amino/methanesulfonylphenylhydrazine hydrochloride 9a-b. All the synthesized compounds were evaluated for their cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibition, anti-inflammatory activity, ulcerogenic liability and analgesic activity. All compounds were more COX-2 inhibitors than COX-1. While most compounds showed good anti-inflammatory activity, the trimethoxy derivatives (10a, 10b, 10g and 10h) were the most potent derivatives (ED50=55...
