Inhibition of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) is considered a promising strategy for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). This research project aims to provide a comprehensive knowledge of newly synthesized coumarin analogues with anti-AD potential. In the present work a series of 3-thiadiazolyl- and(More)
Tylosin is a macrolide antibiotic used as veterinary drug and growth promoter. Attempts were made for hyper production of tylosin by a strain of Streptomyces fradiae NRRL-2702 through irradiation mutagenesis. Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation of wild-type strain caused development of six morphologically altered colony types on agar plates. After screening using(More)
Protein kinase CK2, also known as casein kinase-2, has been found to be involved in cell growth, proliferation and suppression of apoptosis, which is related to human cancers. The series of compounds were identified as casein kinase-2 inhibitors and their inhibitory activities are a function of a variation of their structures. The current study deals with(More)
Members of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) family of proteins are frequently overactive in solid tumors. A relatively new therapeutic approach to inhibit the kinase activity is the use of ATP-competitive small molecules. In silico techniques were employed to identify the key interactions between inhibitors and their protein receptors. A series(More)
Amino azobenzenes are important dyes in the food and textile industry but their application is limited due to their mutagenicity. Computational modeling techniques were used to help understand the factors responsible for mutagenicity, and several quantitative structure toxicity relationship (QSTR) models have been derived. HQSTR (hologram QSTR) analyses(More)
Isothiazole-carboxamidines are potent ATP competitive checkpoint kinases (Chk2) inhibitors. Three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship models were developed using comparative molecular field analysis and comparative molecular similarity indices analysis. The study was performed using three different geometrical methods. In geometrical(More)
RE derivatives, which are cell-permeable and non-electrophilic dual-specificity protein phosphatase inhibitors developed in our laboratory, inhibit CDC25A/B non-competitively, as determined by means of kinetic experiments. To identify the binding site of RE derivatives, we designed and synthesized the new probe molecule RE142, having a Michael acceptor(More)
Alzheimer's disease is among the most widespread neurodegenerative disorder. Cholinesterases (ChEs) play an indispensable role in the control of cholinergic transmission and thus the acetylcholine level in the brain is enhanced by inhibition of ChEs. Coumarin linked thiourea derivatives were designed, synthesized and evaluated biologically in order to(More)
On the basis of the observed biological activity of the coumarins, a new set of 3-thiazolocoumarinyl Schiff-base derivatives with chlorine, hydroxy and methoxy functional group substitutions were designed and synthesized. These compounds were tested against acetylcholinesterase from Electrophorus electricus and butyrylcholinesterase from horse serum and(More)
1. Background and purpose of the project, relationship of the project with other projects Structure based virtual screening of small molecule compound libraries has been proven as an efficient methodology in drug discovery. Furthermore structure based virtual screening combined with experimental screening is a very powerful strategy to discover drug-like(More)
