A pharmacophore model has been developed for determining the essential structural requirements for antimalarial activity from the eight series of substituted 1,2,4-trioxanes. The best pharmacophore model possessing two aliphatic hydrophobic, one aromatic hydrophobic, one hydrogen-bond (H-bond) acceptor, and one H-bond acceptor (lipid) feature for(More)
A new series of side chain-modified 4-aminoquinolines were synthesized and screened for in vitro antiplasmodial activity against both chloroquine-sensitive (3D7) and chloroquine-resistant (K1) strains of Plasmodium falciparum. Among the series, compounds 30 and 31 showed significant inhibition of parasite growth against K1 strain of P. falciparum with IC50(More)
The development of new antimalarial compounds remains a pivotal part of the strategy for malaria elimination. Recent large-scale phenotypic screens have provided a wealth of potential starting points for hit-to-lead campaigns. One such public set is explored, employing an open source research mechanism in which all data and ideas were shared in real time,(More)
A strategy is described to identify new antimalarial agents to overcome the drug resistance and/or failure issues through in silico screening of multiple biological targets. As a part of this, three enzymes namely CTPS, CK, and GST were selected, from among 56 drug targets of P. falciparum, and used them in virtual screening of ZINC database entries which(More)
