Methionine synthase catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from 5-methyltetrahydrofolate to homocysteine, producing methionine and tetrahydrofolate. Benzimidazole and deazatetrahydrofolates derivatives have been shown to inhibit methionine synthase by competing with the substrate 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. In this study, a novel series of substituted(More)
Methods for the synthesis of new heterocyclic systems of thieno (3,2-d)- (1,2,3)-triazine derivatives and N-(3-cyano-5,6-dihydro-4H-cyclopenta (b) thiophene derivatives have been developed. The newly synthesized compounds were tested in vitro against human breast carcinoma cell line (MCF-7). Compounds 7 and 9 have shown the highest activity among the two(More)
COX-2 is an inducible enzyme mediating inflammatory responses. Selective targeting of COX-2 is useful for developing anti-inflammatory agents devoid of ulcerogenic activity. Herein, we report the design and synthesis of a series of pyrazoles and pyrazolo[1,2-a]pyridazines with selective COX-2 inhibitory activity and in vivo anti-inflammatory effect. Both(More)
In this study, four series of 4-anilinoquinazoline derivatives were designed and synthesized as potential anti-proliferative agents. Mechanism of anticancer activity was explained through molecular docking of the target compounds into epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase (EGFR-TK) active site which displayed comparable binding mode of certain(More)
Novel 4-(4-bromophenyl)phthalazine derivatives connected via an alkyl spacer to amine or N-substituted piperazine were designed and synthesized as promising α-adrenoceptor antagonists. The structures of the phthalazine derivatives were established using elemental and spectral analyses. Twelve of the tested compounds displayed significant α-blocking(More)
Methionine synthase (MetS) catalyses the transfer of a methyl group from the methyltetrahydrofolate (MTHF) to homocysteine to produce methionine and tetrahydrofolate. MetS is over-expressed in the cytosol of certain breast and prostate tumor cells. In this article, we designed, synthesized, and evaluated the biological activity of a series of substituted(More)
Cobalamin-dependant cytosolic enzyme methionine synthase (MetS) catalyses the transfer of a methyl group from the methyltetrahydrofolate (MTHF) to homocysteine (Hcy) to produce methionine and tetrahydrofolate (THF). MetS is over-expressed in the cytosol of certain breast and prostate tumour cells. Methionine used as a source of one carbon atom for the(More)
