3,5-dibenzoyl-1,4-dihydropyridines: synthesis and MDR reversal in tumor cells.
Fifteen 4-phenyl-3,5-dibenzoyl-1,4-dihydropyridines (BzDHPs) (1-15) substituted at the 4-phenyl ring were synthesized and compared to their cytotoxic activity and multidrug resistance (MDR)-reversingExpand
Novel antitumor indolizino[6,7-b]indoles with multiple modes of action: DNA cross-linking and topoisomerase I and II inhibition.
A series of bis(hydroxymethyl)indolizino[6,7-b]indoles and their bis(alkylcarbamates) were synthesized for antitumor studies. These agents were designed as hybrid molecules of β-carbolineExpand
Screening for In Vitro Antimycobacterial Activity and Three‐Dimensional Quantitative Structure–Activity Relationship (3D‐QSAR) Study of 4‐(arylamino)coumarin Derivatives
The resurgence of tuberculosis and the emergence of multidrug‐resistant strains of Mycobacteria necessitate the search for new classes of antimycobacterial agents. We have synthesized a small libraryExpand
Potent DNA-directed alkylating agents: Synthesis and biological activity of phenyl N-mustard-quinoline conjugates having a urea or hydrazinecarboxamide linker.
A series of N-mustard-quinoline conjugates bearing a urea or hydrazinecarboxamide linker was synthesized for antitumor evaluation. The in vitro cytotoxicity studies revealed that compounds withExpand
Structure-activity relationship of 2-hydroxy-2-aryl-2,3-dihydro-imidazo[1,2-a]pyrimidinium salts and 2N-substituted 4(5)-aryl-2-amino-1H-imidazoles as inhibitors of biofilm formation by Salmonella
A library of 80 1-substituted 2-hydroxy-2-aryl-2,3-dihydro-imidazo[1,2-a]pyrimidinium salts and 54 2N-substituted 4(5)-aryl-2-amino-1H-imidazoles was synthesized and tested for the antagonisticExpand
Design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of novel water-soluble N-mustards as potential anticancer agents.
A series of novel water-soluble N-mustard-benzene conjugates bearing a urea linker were synthesized. The benzene moiety contains various hydrophilic side chains are linked to the meta- orExpand
DP7, a novel dihydropyridine multidrug resistance reverter, shows only weak inhibitory activity on human CYP3A enzyme(s).
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of 3,5-dibenzoyl-4-(3-phenoxy-phenyl)-1,4-dihydro-2,6-dimethylpyridine (DP7), a novel multidrug resistance (MDR) reverter, on cytochrome P450Expand
Novel indolizino[8,7-b]indole hybrids as anti-small cell lung cancer agents: Regioselective modulation of topoisomerase II inhibitory and DNA crosslinking activities.
A novel series of bis(hydroxymethyl)indolizino[8,7-b]indole hybrids composed of β-carboline (topoisomerase I/II inhibition) and bis(hydroxymethyl)pyrrole (DNA cross-linking) are synthesized forExpand
2,6-Dimethyl-3-acetyl-5-carbmethoxy-4-(3'nitrophenyl)-1,4-dihydropyridine 1 was condensed with aromatic and heterocyclic aldehydes to form chalcone analogs 2a-h and then cyclised to substitutedExpand
