NP603, the 6-dimethoxy phenyl indolin-2-one, was designed as FGF receptor 1 inhibitor by computational study. NP603 was synthesized and found to be more active against endothelial proliferation of HUVEC after the rhFGF-2 stimulation than SU6668 with minimum effective dose of 0.4 microM but with similar potency as SU16g. NP603 inhibited the tyrosine(More)
Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) is an aggressive malignancy with a very high morbidity and mortality for which an effective treatment is lacking. In this study, seventeen zerumbone derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for in vitro cytotoxicity against cholangiocarcinoma cell lines. 5 showed the most potent antiproliferative activity against KKU-100 cell line(More)
Tryptoline, a core structure of ochrolifuanine E, which is a hit compound from virtual screening of the Thai herbal database against BACE1 was used as a scaffold for the design of BACE1 inhibitors. The tryptoline was linked with different side chains by 1,2,3-triazole ring readily synthesized by catalytic azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions. Twenty two(More)
New tacrine-carbazole hybrids were developed as potential multifunctional anti-Alzheimer agents for their cholinesterase inhibitory and radical scavenging activities. The developed compounds showed high inhibitory activity on acetylcholinesterase (AChE) with IC50 values ranging from 0.48 to 1.03 μM and exhibited good inhibition selectivity against AChE over(More)
Four new carbazole alkaloids, claurailas A-D (1-4), as well as 12 known carbazoles and three known coumarins were isolated from the roots of Clausena harmandiana. Heptaphylline (6) and 7-methoxyheptaphylline (7) showed strong cytotoxicity against NCI-H187 and KB cell lines with IC(50) values ranging from 1.3 to 2.7 μM. Compound 7 showed no cytotoxicity(More)
Administration of praziquantel for treatment of liver fluke infection may affect the host, with mild and severe effects after treatment caused by host immune response. Therefore, we focused on the antioxidant property, inflammatory and anthelmintic effects of the traditional folk medicine, G. mangostana pericarp extract, in hamster opisthorchiasis. Syrian(More)
N(alpha)-vanillyl-N(omega)-nitroarginine (N - 1) that combines the active functions of natural antioxidant and nitric oxide synthase inhibitor was developed for its neuroprotective properties. N - 1 exhibited protective effects against hydrogen peroxide-induced cell damage and the inhibitory effect on nitric oxide 'NO' production induced by calcium(More)
Heptaphylline derivatives are carbazoles in Clausena harmandiana, a medicinal plant that is utilized for headache, stomach ache, and other treatments of illness. The present study examined the effects of heptaphylline and 7-methoxyheptaphylline on apoptosis of human colon adenocarcinoma cells (HT-29 cell line). Quantification of cell viability was performed(More)
NP506, the 3-{2,4-dimethyl-5-[2-oxo-5-(N'-phenylhydrazinocarbonyl)-1,2-dihydro-indol-3-ylidenemethyl]-1H-pyrrol-3-yl}-propionic acid, was designed as FGF receptor 1 inhibitor by computational study and found to be more active against endothelial proliferation of HUVEC after the rhFGF-2 stimulation than SU6668 with minimum effective dose of 10 microM. NP506(More)
AIMS The aims of the present study were to investigate the effect of crebanine on memory and cognition impairment in mice and to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanisms. MAIN METHODS The memory-enhancing effects of crebanine were assessed with a water maze test using scopolamine-induced amnesic mice. The molecular mechanism was explored in silico by(More)
