The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antitumor potential of iminoflavones in in vitro and in vivo anticancer models. Preliminary screening in various cancer cell lines revealed four potential iminoflavones out of which IMF-8 was taken based on its activity against colon cancer cells. This was further confirmed by observing the nuclear changes in(More)
A fast and highly efficient method for the synthesis of some of the schiff bases of aminothiazolylbromocoumarin (4a-m) has been performed by microwave irradiation of 2'-amino-4'-(6-bromo-3-coumarinyl) thiazole (3) and substituted aromatic aldehydes (a-m). Microwave assisted reactions have resulted in better yields of the desired products than when prepared(More)
Chalcones were synthesized by reacting indole-3-aldehyde, prepared by Vilsemeir Haack reaction with 4-substituted acetophenone in ethanolic KOH solution. These chalcones were immediately reacted with hydroxylamine hydrochloride in presence of glacial acetic acid as reagent to obtain the corresponding isoxazole derivatives. The synthesized heterocycles were(More)
An attempt was made to synthesise newer 3-methylflavones with various substitution on the ring A and B of 2-phenylchromen-4-one. They were evaluated for antioxidant activity and antibacterial activity against the Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Five test compounds exhibited DPPH radical scavenging activity with IC50 below 100 μg/ml, and the same(More)
Benzopyrones are proven antidiabetic drug candidate in diabetic drug discovery. In this view novel synthetic benzopyrone analogues were selected for testing in experimental diabetes. Type 2 diabetes (T2D) was induced in Wistar rats by streptozotocin (60 mg/kg, i.p.) followed by nicotinamide (120 mg/kg i.p.). Rats having fasting blood glucose (FBG)>200(More)
Synthetic 3-hydroxyflavone analogues (JY-1, JY-2, JY-3, JY-4), were tested for antidiabetic activity in high-fructose-diet-fed (66 %, for 6 weeks) insulin-resistant Wistar rats (FD-fed rats). The fasting blood glucose, insulin, creatinine and AGEs were decreased to near normal upon treatment with test compounds. Insulin resistance markers such as HOMA-IR,(More)
3-Bromo acetyl coumarins (4a-c) on treatment with methyl and ethyl esters of nicotinic acid, isonicotinic acid (5a-d) gave 3-coumrinoyl pyridinium bromides (7a-l) and with quinoline (6) gave 3-coumarinoyl quinolinium bromides (8a-c). The structures of the final compounds were established by their spectral data. The antimicrobial activitiy of all the newly(More)
