As an important class of compounds, 2-quinolones are isomeric to 4-quinolones and isosteric to coumarins. The compounds that have 2-quinolone moiety are associated with interesting biologic activities such as antibacterial, anticancer, antiviral, cardiotonic, and N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor inhibitor functions, among others. In the current study, based on(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)
Twenty-one 2-chloro-N10-substituted phenoxazines have been synthesized and characterized as potential modulators of multidrug resistance (MDR). Many of the compounds, at a concentration of 100 microM, enhanced accumulation of vinblastine (VLB) in drug-resistant KB8-5 cells to a greater extent than the same concentration of verapamil (VRP). However, the(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)
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)
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)
The potential of cinnamic acid as an anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer agent has been studied previously. In our investigation, novel bio-isosters of cinnamyl sulfonamide hydroxamate were synthesized, characterized and confirmed for their structure and evaluated for cytotoxicity. Three NCEs namely, NMJ-1, -2 and -3 showed cell-growth inhibition in 6 human(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)
