Carbamates are well known for AChE as well as MAO inhibition. In this study, atom-based 3D-QSAR model generation, virtual screening, and molecular docking studies were performed for a known series of 31 carbamate derivatives. The best hypothesis yielded four different pharmacophoric features with statistically significant 3D-QSAR model (correlation(More)
Neuropathological cascades leading to reduced cholinergic transmission in Alzheimer's disease led to development of AChE-inhibitors. Although lethal dose of some inhibitors cause interruption with AChE mediated mechanism but reversible AChE inhibitors can assist in protection from inhibition of AChE and hence in an aim to probe potential molecules as(More)
PURPOSE The utility of 18F-FDG PET/CT in the assessment of thyroid nodules is unclear as there are several conflicting reports on the usefulness of SUV as an indicator to distinguish benign from malignant thyroid lesions. This study incorporated an additional parameter, namely dual time point imaging, to determine the diagnostic accuracy of PET/CT imaging.(More)
We developed the novel positron emission tomography (PET) ligand 2-[5-(4-[(11)C]methoxyphenyl)-2-oxo-1,3-benzoxazol-3(2H)-yl]-N-methyl-N-phenylacetamide ([(11)C]MBMP) for translocator protein (18 kDa, TSPO) imaging and evaluated its efficacy in ischemic rat brains. [(11)C]MBMP was synthesized by reacting desmethyl precursor (1) with [(11)C]CH3 I in(More)
The visualization of the activated microglia/TSPO is one of the main aspects of neuroimaging. Here we describe two new (18)F-labelled molecules, 2-[5-(4-[(18)F]fluoroethoxyphenyl)- ([(18)F]2) and 2-[5-(4-[(18)F]fluoropropyloxyphenyl)- ([(18)F]3) -2-oxo-1,3-benzoxazol-3(2H)-yl]-N-methyl-N-phenylacetamide as novel PET ligands for imaging the translocator(More)
We measure intensity statistics and identify statistical regimes and crossovers in random lasers based on nonresonant feedback. A single parameter extracted from an α-stable Levy fit is used to characterize the intensity distributions in all regimes. Measurements made over a range of scattering strengths, excitation energies, and sample sizes enable us to(More)
The acetylcholine receptor is an essential link between the brain and the muscles, so it is a sensitive location for attack. In this study, some reversible [diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid-(amino acid)2] have been docked computationally to the active site of the acetylcholine receptor. The induced fit method was employed to perform the automolecular(More)
Polyethylene glycols (PEGs) are potential drug carriers for humanizing the therapeutic index of anti-cancer agents. In this paper, we report on the modification of the anticancer drugs, methotrexate (MTX) and melphalan (L-PAM), covalently linked to PEGs for drug delivery. Conjugates of MTX and L-PAM were analyzed through different spectroscopic techniques.(More)
A phosphonate derivative 10'-bis(acetamido)-ethane-bis[1,4,7-tri(methylene phosphonic acid)-1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane] (DO3P-AME-DO3P), was synthesized with 90% yield in high purity. It was labeled with (99m)Tc in 97.5% efficiency and specific activity of 112-250 MBq/μmol. The binding affinity of (99m)Tc-DO3P-AME-DO3P towards bone minerals was tested(More)
Eight novel heterocyclic Schiff bases derived from the condensation reactions of indole 3-carboxaldehyde with different l-amino acids (histidine, glutamic acid, aspartic acid, leucine, valine) as well as with some aminophenols, have been synthesized and characterized by various spectroscopic methods (IR, MS, (1)H NMR). Schiff base derivatives of indole(More)
