The Dracaena resin is widely used in traditional medicine as an anticancer agent, and benzofuran lignan is the active component. In this report, we provide evidence that the synthetic derivative of benzofuran lignan (Benfur) showed antitumor activities. It induced apoptosis in p53-positive cells. Though it inhibited endotoxin-induced nuclear factor kappaB(More)
In the present study, we demonstrate the biological activity of esterified caffeic acid with methyl vanillate also termed as caffeic acid methyl vanillate ester (CAMVE). CAMVE potentiates TNF-induced cell death as analyzed by cell viability assay and blocks inflammatory stimuli-induced nuclear transcription factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) activation and(More)
The mTOR pathway is often upregulated in cancer and thus intensively pursued as a target to design novel anticancer therapies. Approved and emerging drugs targeting the mTOR pathway have positively affected the clinical landscape. Recently, activin receptor-like kinase 1 (ALK1), belonging to the TGFβ receptor family, has been reported as an emerging target(More)
With the aim to discover orally active small molecules that stimulate glucose uptake, high throughput screening of a library of 5000 drug-like compounds was conducted in differentiated skeletal muscle cells in presence of insulin. N-Substituted phthalazinone acetamide was identified as a potential glucose uptake modulator. Several novel derivatives were(More)
Lung cancer is the major cause of cancer-related deaths and many cases of Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC), a common type of lung cancer, have frequent genetic/oncogenic activation of EGFR, KRAS, PIK3CA, BRAF, and others that drive tumor growth. Some patients though initially respond, but later develop resistance to erlotinib/gefitinib with no option(More)

A series of novel 2-amino-4-pyrazolecyclopentylpyrimidines have been prepared and evaluated as IGF-1R tyrosin kinase inhibitors. The in vitro activity was found to depend strongly on the substitution pattern in the 2- amino ring, 4-pyrazolo moieties and size of fused saturated ring with the central pyrimidine core. A stepwise optimization by combination of(More)
Considering anti-tumorigenic activity of caffeic acid phenyl ester, synthesis of several esterified form of caffeic acid is a novel approach in designing for potent drugs. Our study demonstrates that esterified caffeic acid with methyl vanillate, termed as caffeic acid methyl vanillate ester (CAMVE), blocked inflammatory stimuli-induced inflammatory(More)

Diacylglycerol acyltransferase 1 (DGAT1) is known to play an important catalytic role in the final step of triglyceride biosynthesis. High fat diet fed DGAT1 knockout mice were resistant to weight gain and exhibited increased insulin and leptin sensitivity thereby indicating a plausible role for DGAT1 inhibitors in the treatment of obesity.(More)
