The synthesis, in vitro evaluation, and conformational study of a new series of small-size peptides acting as antifungal agents are reported. In a first step of our study we performed a conformational analysis using Molecular Mechanics calculations. The electronic study was carried out using Molecular electrostatic potentials (MEPs) obtained from RHF/6-31G(More)
Twenty one phenylpropanoids (including eugenol and safrole) and synthetic analogues, thirteen of them new compounds, were evaluated for antifungal properties, first with non-targeted assays against a panel of human opportunistic pathogenic fungi. Some structure-activity relationships could be observed, mainly related to the influence of an allyl substituent(More)
The present work describes the synthesis and antifungal evaluation of new 5-arylidene-(Z)-2-dimethylamino-1,3-thiazol-4-ones 4a-f, obtained by the reaction of aromatic aldehydes 1 and rhodanine 2 followed by treatment with DMF. All compounds were tested against a panel of yeasts, hialohyphomycetes, and dermatophytes using the microbroth dilution method.(More)
The synthesis, in vitro evaluation, and conformational study of RQIKIWFQNRRMKWKK-NH(2) (penetratin) and related derivatives acting as antifungal agents are reported. Penetratin and some of its derivatives displayed antifungal activity against the human opportunistic pathogenic standardized ATCC strains Candida albicans and Cryptococcus neoformans as well as(More)
The design, synthesis, in vitro evaluation, and conformational study of nitrosopyrimidine derivatives acting as antifungal agents are reported. Different compounds structurally related with 4,6-bis(alkyl or arylamino)-5-nitrosopyrimidines were evaluated. Some of these nitrosopyrimidines have displayed a significant antifungal activity against human(More)
New hetaryl- and alkylidenerhodanine derivatives 3a-d, 3e, and 4a-d were prepared from heterocyclic aldehydes 1a-d or acetaldehyde 1e. The treatment of several rhodanine derivatives 3a-d and 3e with piperidine or morpholine in THF under reflux, afforded (Z)-5-(hetarylmethylidene)-2-(piperidin-1-yl)thiazol-4(5H)-ones and 2-morpholinothiazol-4(5H)-ones 5a-d,(More)
A new series of novel thiazole-based 8,9-dihydro-7H-pyrimido[4,5-b][1,4]diazepines 6a-g and 7a-g were obtained with high regioselectivity from the reaction of triamino- or tetraaminopyrimidines 4 and 5 with α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds 3a-g based on 2,4-dichlorothiazol-5-carbaldehyde 1. Twelve of the synthesized compounds were selected and tested by(More)
Forty four extracts from nine Baccharis spp. from the Caulopterae section were tested in combination with terbinafine against Trichophyton rubrum with the HTSS assay at six different ratios with the aim of detecting those mixtures that produced a ≥50% statistically significant enhancement of growth inhibition. Since an enhanced effect of a combination(More)
A series of pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridines were prepared by a microwave-assisted aza-Diels-Alder reaction between pyrazolylformimidamides 1 and β-nitrostyrenes 2 in toluene as the solvent. This procedure provides a simple one-step and environmentally friendly methodology with good yields for the synthesis of these compounds. All compounds were tested for(More)
The synthesis, in vitro evaluation, and conformational study of penetratin analogues acting as antifungal agents are reported. Different peptides structurally related with penetratin were evaluated. Analogues of penetratin rich in Arg, Lys and Trp amino acids were tested. In addition, HFRWRQIKIWFQNRRM[O]KWKK-NH(2), a synthetic 20 amino acid peptide was also(More)
