3D-QSAR and Docking Studies of Selective GSK-3beta Inhibitors. Comparison with a Thieno[2, 3-b]pyrrolizinone Derivative, a New Potential Lead for GSK-3beta Ligands
The three-dimensional structures of 3-anilino-4-arylmaleimides, selective GSK-3beta inhibitors, were correlated to their biological affinities by 3D-QSAR studies. Expand

Design of donecopride, a dual serotonin subtype 4 receptor agonist/acetylcholinesterase inhibitor with potential interest for Alzheimer's disease treatment
Significance Targeting more than one molecular cause implied in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) with a sole drug is considered a promising challenge, because it may address the numerousExpand

Therapeutic Potential of 5-HT6 Receptor Agonists.
Given its predominant expression in the central nervous system (CNS), 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT: serotonin) subtype 6 receptor (5-HT6R) has been considered as a valuable target for the development ofExpand

Virtual Screening Discovery of New Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors Issued from CERMN Chemical Library
In our quest to find new inhibitors able to inhibit acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and, at the same time, to protect neurons from beta amyloid toxicity, a virtual screening of the Centre d'Etudes et de Recherche sur le Medicament de Normandie (CERMN) chemical library was carried out. Expand

3-(Dipropylamino)-5-hydroxybenzofuro[2,3-f]quinazolin-1(2H)-one (DPA-HBFQ-1) plays an inhibitory role on breast cancer cell growth and progression.
A series of unknown 3-(alkyl(dialkyl)amino)benzofuro[2,3-f]quinazolin-1(2H)-ones 4-17 has been synthesized as new ellipticine analogs, in which the carbazole moiety and the pyridine ring wereExpand

Synthesis and biological evaluation of novel pyrrolopyrrolizinones as anticancer agents.
We herein describe the synthesis of novel 3-(het)aryl-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyrrolizin-8(1H)-ones starting from commercial (het)aryl-acetonitriles. A more convergent route was also described through theExpand
