Ferutinin stimulates nitric oxide synthase activity in median eminence of the rat.
Several species of Ferula genus have been used in folk medicine in digestive disorders, rheumatism, headache, arthritis, and as tranquilizers, antispasmodic and aphrodisiac. From the dry and powderedExpand
Synthesis and study of antiproliferative, antitopoisomerase II, DNA-intercalating and DNA-damaging activities of arylnaphthalimides.
A series of arylnaphthalimides were designed and synthesized to overcome the dose-limiting cytotoxicity of N-acetylated metabolites arising from amonafide, the prototypical antitumour naphthalimideExpand
Synthesis and Antimicrobial Activity of 4-Substituted 1,2,3-Triazole-Coumarin Derivatives
A new series of coumarin-1,2,3-triazole conjugates with varied alkyl, phenyl and heterocycle moieties at C-4 of the triazole nucleus were synthesized using a copper(I)-catalysed Huisgen 1,3-dipolarExpand
Benzodihydrofurans from Cyperus teneriffae.
Three new benzodihydrofurans (1-3) and seven known aromatic compounds (4-10) were isolated from the roots of Cyperus teneriffae. Vibrational circular dichroism spectroscopy was used to define theExpand
Synthesis and biological evaluation of naphthoquinone-coumarin conjugates as topoisomerase II inhibitors.
Based on previous Topoisomerase II docking studies of naphthoquinone derivatives, a series of naphthoquinone-coumarin conjugates was synthesized through a multicomponent reaction from aromaticExpand
A new family of densely functionalized fused-benzoquinones as potent human protein kinase CK2 inhibitors.
A new series of 2-amino-4-phenyl-6-hydroxy-7-alkyl-pyranobenzoquinones was synthesized as ATP-competitive CK2 inhibitors. They were readily synthesized through a three-component KnoevenagelExpand
5-Ethynylarylnaphthalimides as antitumor agents: Synthesis and biological evaluation.
A set of 5-ethynylarylnaphthalimides was synthesized by Sonogashira cross-coupling reactions and evaluated for antiproliferative and antitopoisomerase II in vitro activities. Furthermore dockingExpand
Expanding the Chemical Space of Withaferin A by Incorporating Silicon To Improve Its Clinical Potential on Human Ovarian Carcinoma Cells.
Ovarian cancer represents the seventh most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide. Herein, we report on the development of a withaferin A (WA)-silyl ether library with 30 analogues reported for theExpand
α-Hispanolol Induces Apoptosis and Suppresses Migration and Invasion of Glioblastoma Cells Likely via Downregulation of MMP-2/9 Expression and p38MAPK Attenuation
α-Hispanolol (α-H) is a labdane diterpenoid that has been shown to induce apoptosis in several human cancer cells. However, the effect of α-H in human glioblastoma cells has not been described. InExpand
