Various 3,3′-diindolylmethane (DIM) derivatives were synthesized and the antibacterial activity of these compounds were tested against ten bacterial strains and their minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values were determined. The MIC values of derivatives 3a–d and 5a–e were ranging from 125 to 500 μg/mL. Among these derivatives,… (More)
A simple synthesis and in vitro antileishmanial activity of 29,30-dibromo-28-oxoallobetulin against the parasitic protozoans, Leishmania donovani and Leishmania major is described. The structure of the compound is established on the basis of spectral data (IR, NMR, MS). Both the antiproliferative effect and the cell cycle progression were studied.
