Synthesis of the bis-4-hydroxycoumarin-type compound, 3,3'-[3-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-3-oxopropane-1,1-diyl]bis(4-hydroxy-2H-chromen-2-one), was performed by two alternative pathways, either involving a basic organocatalyzed 1,4-conjugate addition tandem reaction of 4-hydroxycoumarin on chromone-3-carboxylic acid, or a double condensation of 4-hydroxycoumarin on(More)
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in women worldwide and a critical public health concern. Here we investigated the anticancer potential and effects of low-molecular-weight bridgehead oxygen and nitrogen-containing spiro-bisheterocycles on proliferation and apoptosis of the human breast cancer cell lines MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231. The(More)
Coumarins are natural compounds with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer potential known to modulate inflammatory pathways. Here, non-toxic biscoumarin OT52 strongly inhibited proliferation of non-small cell lung cancer cells with KRAS mutations, inhibited stem-like characteristics by reducing aldehyde dehydrogenase expression and abrogated(More)
The title compound, C(15)H(22)N(2)O(3), was obtained as a by-product of oxidative cleavage of 1,3-dicyclo-hexyl-(3-oxo-2,3-dihydro-benzofuran-2-yl)imidazolidine-2,4-dione. Herein, we report the crystal structure of a second polymorph, which was obtained by crystallization from an ethanol solution at 253 K, instead of slow evaporation of the same solvent at(More)
Cholinesterase family consists of two sister enzymes; acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) which hydrolyze acetylcholine. Since deficit of acetylcholine has been evidenced in the patients of Alzheimer's disease (AD), cholinesterase inhibitors are currently the most prescribed drug class for the treatment of AD. In the present study,(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM NF-ĸB affects most aspects of cellular physiology. Deregulation of NF-ĸB signaling is associated with inflammatory diseases and cancer. In this study, we evaluated the cytotoxic and NF-ĸB inhibition potential of new spiro(lactone-cyclohexanone) compounds in two different human leukemia cell lines (U937 and K562). MATERIALS AND METHODS The(More)
The title compound, C(15)H(22)N(2)O(3), has been isolated as a by-product of an oxidative cleavage of the C-C bond linking two five-membered rings of 1,3-dicyclo-hexyl-5-(3-oxo-2,3-dihydro-benzofuran-2-yl)imidazolidine-2,4-dione. Individual mol-ecular units are engaged in weak C=O⋯C=O inter-actions [O⋯C = 2.814 (10) and 2.871 (11) Å], leading to the(More)
