Amyloid beta (Aβ) and cholinesterase enzymes (AChE, BuChE) are important biological targets for the effective treatment of Alzheimer's disease. In this study, the aim was to synthesize new donepezil-like secondary amide compounds that display a potent inhibition of cholinesterases and Aβ with antioxidant and metal chelation abilities. All test compounds(More)
The aim of this study was to design new molecules and evaluate their anticholinesterase and amyloid beta (Aβ1-42) inhibition activities as multifunctional drug candidates for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). A series of 5,6-dimethoxy-1H-indene-2-carboxamides (1-22) was synthesized; cholinesterase inhibitory activities of the compounds were(More)
A novel series of meta-substituted ethanediamide and 2-butenediamide derivatives were synthesized and tested for their ability to inhibit electric eel acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and equine serum butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE). The synthesized compounds were evaluated against ChE enzymes using the colorimetric method described by Ellman et al. (Biochem.(More)
Several new oxalamide and 2-butenediamide derivatives have been designed, synthesized and evaluated as the acetyl- and butyryl-cholinesterase inhibitors for Alzheimer's disease. The enzyme inhibitory activity of the synthesized compounds was measured using Ellman's colorimetric method. It was revealed that compound 1a(More)
In recent years, very intensive studies for the synthesizing of heterocyclic compounds have been done because of their important roles as the scaffolds of bioactive substances. Quinoline and its hydro-derivatives are themost popular N-heteroaromatics incorporated into the structures of many pharmaceuticals. It is known that many of hydroquinolinone(More)
