We report the development of two novel neurotensin mimetics (mimics 1 and 2). These compounds were rationally designed and synthesized according to the multiple template approach. We present results of experiments designed to define their pharmacological profiles. In radioligand binding assays with murine neuroblastoma clone N1E-115, we determined the(More)
Novel neurotensin (NT) (8-13) (Arg(8)-Arg(9)-Pro(10)-Tyr(11)-Ile(12)-Leu(13)) mimetics 3, 4 were designed by adopting all intrinsic functional groups of the native neurotensin(8-13) and using a substituted indole as a template to mimic the pharmacophore of NT(8-13). Biological studies at subtype 1 of the NT receptor showed that 3 has a 55 and 580 nM binding(More)
In the enanti-omerically pure title compound, C(15)H(15)NO(6), the five-membered ring displays a twist conformation with the local axis through the N atom. The acetyl groups are perpendicular to the ring [dihedral angles 80.3 (1) and 89.3 (1)°] and project to opposite sides. The packing is governed by two weak C-H⋯O inter-actions, forming layers of(More)
Dipeptides obtained from l-proline and beta(3)-l-amino acids are reported to catalyze enantioselective direct aldol reaction in aqueous medium, leading to significant anti:syn diastereomeric ratios and enantiomeric excesses. The simple introduction of a polar substituent at the C-2 position of the beta(3)-l-amino acid was also found to enhance appreciably(More)
A series of new benzenesulfonamides, most of which are chiral, incorporating 1, 3, 4-oxadiazole and amino acid moieties have been synthesized. Some of these compounds were screened for antimalarial activity and also evaluated for their ability to inhibit hem polymerization. The electrophoretic analysis indicated that one compound was effective in inhibiting(More)
A series of chiral 1,3,4-oxadiazole-5-thiols incorporating 2-substituted-benzenesulfonamide moieties has been prepared from amino acids, via the ester and carbohydrazide intermediate, followed by cyclization with carbon disulfide. Some of these compounds have been investigated for the inhibition of three physiologically relevant carbonic anhydrase (CA, EC(More)
We report the rational design of novel neurotensin mimetics through use of the Multiple Template Approach. This approach is based on our notion that a flexible peptide can be replaced by a partially flexible molecule, identified through testing a comparatively small number of molecules possessing a different intrinsic availability of conformations of the(More)
In the enanti-omerically pure title compound, C(11)H(19)N(3)O(3)S, the chain C-N-C(O)-O-C-C (from the asymmetric carbon to a methyl of the tert-butyl group) displays an extended conformation. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked into chains parallel to the c axis by classical N-H⋯O(diazo-carbon-yl) hydrogen bonding and an unusual inter-molecular(More)
The concept of template-assembled synthetic proteins (TASP) describes a central scaffold that predefines the three dimensional structure for diverse molecules linked to this platform. Cyclic β-tripeptides are interesting candidates for use as templates due to their conformationally defined structure, stability to enzymatic degradation, and ability to form(More)
