Brartemicin is a trehalose-based inhibitor of tumor cell invasion produced by the actinomycete of the genus Nonomuraea. In order to explore the preliminary structure-activity relationship and obtain more potent inhibitors, a series of brartemicin analogs were synthesized through the Mitsunobu coupling of the secondary hydroxyls benzyl protected(More)
The small chemical compound 8-ethoxy-2-(4-fluorophenyl)-3-nitro-2H-chromene (S14161) was recently identified as an inhibitor of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K). In the present study, we designed a novel synthesis of S14161 and prepared a series of its analogues via the oxa-Michael-Henry reaction in the presence of catalytic amounts of l-proline and(More)
A novel recyclable Pd/C catalyst mediated dehydrogenation of sterols is developed. The conversion of sterols to 1,4,6-trien-3-ones is best achieved with Pd/C as a catalyst (10%) in the presence of six equivalents of allyl diethyl phosphate (ADP) and excess amount of sodium carbonate in DMF under vigorous reflux conditions. This transformation gives(More)
A series of new HIV-1 protease inhibitors with the hydroxyethylamine core and different hydroxyprolinamide P2 ligands were designed and synthesized. Variation of substitutions at the P2 significantly affected the enzyme inhibitory potency of the inhibitors. Compounds 2a and 2d showed excellent enzyme inhibitory activity with IC(50) values in the nanomolar(More)
By targeting a new binding region at the interface between αβ-tubulin heterodimers at the colchicine binding site, we designed a series of 7-substituted 1-methyl-1,4-dihydroindeno[1,2-c]pyrazoles as potential tubulin polymerization inhibitors. Among the compounds synthesized,(More)
