A number of small molecules bind directly and selectively to DNA, by inhibiting replication, transcription or topoisomerase activity. In this work the interaction of native calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) with Aspartame (APM), an artificial sweeteners was studied at physiological pH. DNA binding study of APM is useful to understand APM-DNA interaction mechanism(More)
The interaction of native calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) with isatin was studied at physiological pH by spectrophotometric, spectrofluorometric, competition experiment, circular dichroism, and viscometric techniques. No red shift and isobestic points are observed in UV absorption band of isatin. A strong fluorescence quenching reaction of DNA to isatin was(More)
The interaction of native calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) with [Cu(ph(2)phen)(phen-dione)Cl]Cl was studied at physiological pH by spectrophotometric, spectrofluorometric, circular dichroism, and viscometric techniques. Considerable hypochromicity and red shift are observed in the UV absorption band of the Cu complex. Binding constants (K(b)) of DNA with the(More)
The DNA binding behavior of [Cu(phen)(phen-dione)Cl]Cl (1) and [Cu(bpy)(phen-dione)Cl]Cl (2) was studied with a series of techniques including UV-vis absorption, circular dichroism spectroscopy, and viscometric methods. Cytotoxicity effect and DNA unwinding properties were also investigated. The results indicate that the Cu(II) complexes interact with(More)
In this research, synthesis, antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of a series of catecholthioethers having benzoxazole and tetrazole moieties are described. Antimicrobial activity was evaluated by minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) assay. The synthesized compounds were tested in vitro against three Gram-positive bacteria including Staphylococcus(More)
A new series of hydrazone and bishydrazone derivatives was synthesized starting from adipic dihydrazide, oxalyl dihydrazide, 4-hydroxybenzhydrazide, 2-furancarboxylic acid hydrazide, acetohydrazide, 4-pyridinecarboxylic acid hydrazide, and isatin. The chemical structures were confirmed by means of 1H-NMR, UV, and IR spectral data and elemental analysis. The(More)
Isatin-3-isonicotinylhydrazone was synthesized and characterized. The interaction of native calf thymus DNA with isatin-3-isonicotinylhydrazone (IINH) in 10 mM Tris–HCl aqueous solutions at neutral pH 7.4 has been investigated by spectrophotometric, circular dichroism (CD), melting temperature (T m ), spectrofluorimetric, and viscometric techniques. It is(More)
A new, convenient method for the syntheses of 2-substituted benzimidazole and benzothizole is described. Short reaction times, large-scale synthesis, easy and quick isolation of the products, excellent chemoselectivity, and excellent yields are the main advantages of this procedure.
9-Diazofluorene, on treatment with stoichiometric or substoichiometric amounts of quaternary ammonium hydroxide or methoxide or of potassium t-butoxide in solution in aqueous or alcoholic dimethyl sulfoxide or acetonitrile at 30 degrees C, decomposes with evolution of nitrogen to yield fluorenone azine [bis(fluorenylidene)hydrazine] in almost quantitative(More)
Isatin, 1H-indole-2,3-dione, is a heterocyclic compound of significant importance in medicinal chemistry. It is a synthetically versatile molecule, a precursor for a large number of pharmacologically active compounds. Isatin and its derivatives have aroused great attention in recent years due to their wide variety of biological activities, relevant to(More)
