An efficient and facile synthesis of 17-pyrazolinyl derivatives of pregnenolone and their evaluation as potential anticancer agents against various human cancer cell lines are reported. The scheme involves the transformation of the starting pregnenolone acetate into pregnenolone, conversion of pregnenolone to the corresponding benzylidine derivatives and(More)
A series of 4beta-[(4-substituted)-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl] podophyllotoxin congeners have been designed and synthesized with significant regioselectivity by employing Cu(I) catalyzed 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of C4beta-azido podophyllotoxin and C4beta-azido-4'-O-demethyl podophyllotoxin with N-prop-2-yn-1-ylanilines. These compounds were evaluated for(More)
A series of novel magnolol derivatives were synthesised and evaluated for in vitro antimicrobial and antiproliferative activities. We found that most of the compounds were effective inhibitors of Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA and VRE with MIC in the range of 1-64 μg/mL and MBC in the range of 1-128 μg/mL. Few derivatives also exhibited promising antifungal(More)
The acylated analogs of picroside-II were synthesized and tested for immune-adjuvant activity in the presence of weak antigen ovalbumin found to stimulate anti-OVA IgG titer, neutralizing antibody (IgG1 and IgG2a) titer as well as the production of soluble mediators of a Th1 response (IL-2 and IFN-γ) and Th2 response (IL-4) and proliferation of T(More)
A facile synthesis of 21-triazolyl derivatives of pregnenolone and their potential antitumour activity is reported. The scheme involves the transformation of the starting pregnenolone acetate into pregnenolone, conversion of pregnenolone to 21-bromo pregnenolone and finally the one-pot, two-step in situ conversion of the bromo derivative to the 21-triazolyl(More)
In the present study, novel spiro derivatives of α-santonin were prepared and tested for their anticancer activity against a panel of six human cancer cell lines. Spiro-isoxazoline and spiro-isoxazolidine derivatives have been generated on C-ring of α-santonin (α-methylene-γ-butyrolactone) by the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of α-santonin derivative 6 with(More)
A series of 4beta-[(4-substituted)-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl]podophyllotoxin analogues have been synthesized with high regio-selectivity by employing copper(I)-catalyzed 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of 1-O-propargyl monosaccharides with C4beta-azido podophyllotoxin and C4beta-azido-4'-O-demethyl podophyllotoxin. All the compounds were evaluated for their anticancer(More)
This study describes the mechanism of trolox and tiron induced potentiation of cytotoxicity caused by Ery5, an analog of magnolol, in human myeloid leukemia HL-60 cells. Ery5 induced cytotoxicity in HL-60 cells by involving activation of bax and cleavage of caspase 3, which contributed towards activation of both apoptotic and autophagic pathways. Trolox and(More)
Synthesis of a focussed library of trans-stilbene compounds through Wittig and other base catalysed condensation reactions is presented. The synthesized stilbenes were screened for their inhibitory potential against murine tyrosinase activity to explore the structure activity relationship (SAR). Presence of electron withdrawing group (-CN) at the double(More)
A series of novel 4beta-[(4-substituted)-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl]podophyllotoxin derivatives were synthesized by employing Cu(I)-catalyzed click chemistry and evaluated for their anticancer activity against a panel of seven human cancer cell lines (HT-29, HCT-15, 502713, HOP-62, A-549, MCF-7, and SF-295). The compounds 9b, 9c, 9e, 9f, and 9h showed significant(More)
