In this study, a series of multipotent phenylthiazole-tacrine hybrids (7a-7e, 8, and 9a-9m) were synthesized and biologically evaluated. Screening results showed that phenylthiazole-tacrine hybrids were potent cholinesterase inhibitors with pIC(50) (-logIC(50)) value ranging from 5.78 ± 0.05 to 7.14 ± 0.01 for acetylcholinesterase (AChE), and from 5.75 ±(More)
Cooperating mercapto groups with tacrine in a single molecular, novel multifunctional compounds have been designed and synthesized. These mercapto-tacrine derivatives displayed a synergistic pharmacological profile of long-term potentiation enhancement, cholinesterase inhibition, neuroprotection, and less hepatotoxicity, emerging as promising molecules for(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder with enhanced retention of fear memory and has profound impact on quality of life for millions of people worldwide. The β-adrenoceptor antagonist propranolol has been used in preclinical and clinical studies for the treatment of PTSD, but the mechanisms underlying its potential(More)
As an endogenous gaseous molecule, hydrogen sulfide (H2 S) has attracted extensive attention because of its multiple biological effects. However, the effect of H2 S on amygdala-mediated emotional memory has not been elucidated. Here, by employing Pavlovian fear conditioning, an animal model widely used to explore the neural substrates of emotion, we(More)
