Coexpression of EGFR and HER2 has been found in many tumors such as breast, ovarian, colon and prostate cancers, with poor prognosis of the patients. Herein, our team has designed and synthesized new eighteen compounds with 6-substituted 4-anilinoquinazoline core to selectively inhibit EGFR/HER2 tyrosine kinases. Twelve compounds (8a-8d, 9a, 9c, 9d, 10a,(More)
A series of phenylbipyridinylpyrazoles was synthesized through the reaction of 2-(4-(2-chloropyridin-4-yl)-3-(3-methoxy-5-methylphenyl)-1H-pyrazol-1-yl)acetonitrile (4) with different 6-substituted pyridine-3-ylboronic acids. The final compounds 5a-j were screened at 10 µM against over 60 tumor cell lines at the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI). In(More)
Translocator protein (TSPO) is involved in modulating mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) opening/closure leading to either apoptotic cell death via opening of mPTP or cell protection mediated by mPTP blocking and hence intercepting mPTP induced apoptosis. Herein, 2-(2-aryloxyphenyl)-1,4-dihydroisoquinolin-3(2H)-one derivatives have been(More)
Herein, we report new quinazoline-urea based compounds with potent cytotoxic activities against TMZ-resistant glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) cells. Low micromolar IC₅₀ values were exhibited over a panel of three primary GBM patient-derived cell cultures belonging to proneural (GBM-1), mesenchymal (GBM-2), and classical (GBM-3) subtypes. Eight compounds(More)
Herein, we report a new series of aliphatic substituted pyridyl-urea small molecules synthesized as potential modulators for amyloid beta (Aβ) induced mitochondrial dysfunction. Their blocking activities against Aβ-induced mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) opening were evaluated by JC-1 assay which measures the change of mitochondrial(More)
Herein, we report compound KST9046, a new agent possessing quinazoline-urea scaffold. Preliminary biological evaluation done by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), USA, showed a great inhibitory effect of KST9046 over the 60 cell-line tumor panel. Accordingly, it was selected for a dose-response assay; a broad spectrum antiproliferative activity with(More)
A novel series of twenty-six quinazoline-urea derivatives was designed and synthesized. Their blocking activities against β-amyloid peptide (Aβ) induced mitochondrial permeability transition pore (mPTP) opening were evaluated by JC-1 assay which measured the change of mitochondrial membrane potential. Seven compounds showed better inhibitory activities than(More)
