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)
The growth and metastasis of solid tumors are dependent on angiogenesis. The vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is of particular interest since it is essential for angiogenesis. The development of novel inhibitors of VEGF receptor type 2 (VEGFR-2) is important. Quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR) studies were performed to understand(More)
Growing resistance of prevalent antitubercular (antiTB) agents in clinical isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) provoked an urgent need to discover novel antiTB agents. Enoyl acyl carrier protein (ACP) reductase (InhA) from Mtb is a well known and thoroughly studied as antitubucular therapy target. Here we have reported the discovery of potent(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)
A new series of structurally diverse chromone containing sulfonamides has been developed. Crystal structures of three representative compounds (2a, 3a and 4a) in the series are reported. All compounds were screened for their inhibitory potential against alkaline phosphatases (ALPs). Two main classes of ALP isozymes were selected for this study, the tissue(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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
