Betulin is a pentacyclic triterpene found in many plant species, among others, in white birch bark. The aim of the study was in vitro characterization of the anticancer activity of betulin in a range of human tumour cell lines (neuroblastoma, rhabdomyosarcoma-medulloblastoma, glioma, thyroid, breast, lung and colon carcinoma, leukaemia and multiple(More)
Our previous in vivo studies showed that chlorpyrifos (CPF) and cypermethrin (CM) in a mixture dermally administered, strongly inhibited cholinesterase activity in plasma and the brain and were very toxic to the rat central nervous system. In this work, the mechanisms of neurotoxicity have not been elucidated. We used human undifferentiated SH-SY5Y cells to(More)
2-(2,4-Dihydroxyphenyl)thieno-1,3-thiazin-4-ones are a group of new compounds with potential anticancer activity. This type of derivatives was poorly investigated in the area of synthesis and biological activities. In the present study the antiproliferative action of the most active derivative BChTT was described. The aim of biological evaluation was to(More)
A new one-step synthesis of novel biologically active 2-substituted 2,4-dihydroxyphenyl-4 $$H$$ H -thieno[3,2- $$d$$ d ][1,3]thiazin-4-ones and 4 $$H$$ H -thieno[2,3- $$d$$ d ][1,3]thiazin-4-ones has been elaborated and described. The compounds were prepared by the reaction of aryl-modified sulfinylbis [(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)methanethione]s and the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG), a key intermediate in Krebs cycle, is an important biological compound involved in the formation of amino acids, nitrogen transport, and oxidation reactions. AKG is already commercially available as a dietary supplement and its supplementation with glutamine, arginine, or ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate has(More)
The anticancer potential of 2-amino-1,3,4-thiadiazole compounds has been documented by in vitro and in vivo studies. In our previous research, we described the synthesis as well as the antiproliferative and neuroprotective activities of 2-(4-fluorophenyloamino)-5-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole (FABT). The aim of the present study was to investigate(More)
Two 2-(monohalogenophenylamino)-5-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazoles were synthesized by reaction of sulfinyl bis(2,4-dihydroxythiobenzoyl) with 4-substituted 3-thiosemicarbazides and evaluated for their antiproliferative activity in tumor cells and for cytotoxicity in normal cells. Both derivatives in micromolar concentrations elicited a prominent(More)
The 2-amino-5-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole set are well known compounds with interesting in vitro and in vivo anti-cancer profiles. The aim of this study was an in vitro evaluation of the anti-cancer activity of a new synthesized aminothiadiazole derivative 2-(3-chlorophenyloamino)-5-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)- -1,3,4-thiadiazole 4ClABT. The effect on(More)
4BrABT (2-(4-Bromophenylamino)-5-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole) is a compound known for its interesting in vitro anticancer profile. 4BrABT inhibited proliferation and motility of several cancer cell lines in concentrations which were not toxic to normal cells. A major problem associated with cancer chemotherapy, but also caused by environmental(More)
We reported the synthesis and characterization of a series of azoloand azino[1,3]thiazinones containing the 2,4-dihydroxyphenyl substituent. The compounds were prepared by a new one-step reaction of aryl-modified sulfinylbis[(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)methanethione]s and the corresponding aminoazolo(azino)carboxamides. Their chemical structures were confirmed by(More)
