Candida albicans utilizes arachidonic acid (AA) released during the course of infection (Candidiasis) from phospholipids of infected host cell membranes and synthesizes extracellular prostaglandin(s) which play an important role in hyphae formation and host cell damage. C. albicans biofilms secrete significantly more prostaglandin(s) and evidence suggests(More)
To understand the influence of different hydrophobic amino acids at "a" and "d" positions of a heptad repeat sequence on antimicrobial, cytotoxic, and antiendotoxin properties, four 15-residue peptides with leucine (LRP), phenylalanine (FRP), valine (VRP), and alanine (ARP) residues at these positions were designed, synthesized, and characterized. Although(More)
Fluconazole based novel mimics containing 1,2,3-triazole were designed and synthesized as antifungal agents. Their antifungal activities were evaluated in vitro by measuring the minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs). Compounds 12, 15, and 16 were found to be more potent against Candida fungal pathogens than control drugs fluconazole and amphotericin B.(More)
A series of 2-Arylamino-3-chloro-1,4-naphthoquinones (3), 2-Amino-3-arylsulfanyl-1,4-naphthoquinones (5), 2-Arylamino-3-arylsulfanyl-1,4-naphthoquinones (6), Dihydrobenzo[f]naphtho[2,3-b][1,4]thiazepine-6,11-diones (9) (via Pictet-Spengler cyclization), Isoindoline-1,3-dione derivatives of 1,4-naphthoquinone (13),(More)
A series of (5S) N-(3-{3-fluoro-4-[4-(3-aryl-4,5-dihydro-isoxazole-5-carbonyl)-piperazin-1-yl]-phenyl}-2-oxo-oxazolidin-5-ylmethyl)-acetamide(6a-o) were synthesized and their in vitro antibacterial activity against various resistant Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria were evaluated. Most of the synthesized compounds showed 2 to 10 fold lower MIC(More)
Novel (5S)-N-[3-(3-fluoro-4-{4-[2-oxo-4-(substituted aryl)-but-3-enoyl]-piperazin-1-yl}-phenyl)-2-oxo-oxazolidin-5-ylmethyl]-acetamide 3a-j analogues were synthesized and their in vitro antibacterial activity was evaluated. Most of the compounds of series showed superior in vitro activity against Gram-positive resistant strains than linezolid. Compound 3f(More)
A series of N-alkylated derivatives of nitroimidazolyl oxazolidinones 6a-i with various substituent at N-1 position of the nitroimidazole were synthesized and their in-vitro antibacterial activities were evaluated against several Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The 6a was found to be most potent compound in the series with MIC at 0.097 microg/mL(More)
BACKGROUND Development of new and effective therapeutics for sexually transmitted herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) infection is important from public health perspective. With an aim to identify natural products from medicinal plants, in the present study, the potential of Terminalia chebula Retz was investigated for its activity against HSV-2. METHODS(More)
Chemo- and regio-selective one pot and one step synthesis of novel 2,3,5,6-tetrakis (substituted thio)cyclohexa-2,5-diene-1,4-diones (4d-14), 2,5-dichloro-3,6-diaminocyclohexa-2,5-diene-1,4-diones and 2,5-diaminocyclohexa-2,5-diene-1,4-diones (16) by economical green methodology approach using LD (Laundry detergent) as a catalyst "In-Water" by nucleophilic(More)
INTRODUCTION Emerging virulent strains of influenza virus pose a serious public health threat with potential pandemic consequences. A novel avian influenza virus, H7N9, breached the species barrier from infected domestic poultry to humans in 2013 in China. Since then, it has caused numerous infections in humans with a close contact to poultry. MATERIALS(More)
