A series of 4-quinolylhydrazones was synthesized and tested in vitro against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. At a concentration of 6.25microg/mL, most of the newly synthesized compounds displayed 100% inhibitory activity against M. tuberculosis in cellular assays. Further screening allowed the identification of very potent antitubercular agents. Compound 4c was(More)
Here we describe the identification and preliminary characterization of a new class of pyrrolo(imidazo)quinoxaline hydrazones as florescent probes for Aβ(1-42) fibrils. All the newly developed compounds were able to bind amyloid fibrils formed in vitro and some of them displayed an increase of their fluorescence upon binding. When tested on brain tissue(More)
Plasmodium falciparum subtilisin-like protease 1 (PfSUB1) is a serine protease that plays key roles in the egress of the parasite from red blood cells and in preparing the released merozoites for the subsequent invasion of new erythrocytes. The development of potent and selective PfSUB1 inhibitors could pave the way to the discovery of potential(More)
Among the enzymes involved in the life cycle of HCV, the non-structural protein NS3, with its double function of protease and NTPase/helicase, is essential for the virus replication. Exploiting our previous knowledge in the development of nucleotide-mimicking NS3 helicase (NS3h) inhibitors endowed with key structural and electronic features necessary for an(More)
