Modifications of the hydrophobic character at the 7 and 10 positions of the taxoids greatly modified the effect of these drugs on the tubulin microtubule system. The presence of an alkyl chain at these positions decreased the activity while their corresponding more polar analogues restored the activity of these molecules. It appears that the recognition of(More)
Aldose reductase (AR) plays an important role in the design of drugs that prevent and treat diabetic complications. Aldose reductase inhibitors (ARIs) have received significant attentions as potent therapeutic drugs. Based on combination principles, three series of luteolin derivatives were synthesised and evaluated for their AR inhibitory activity and(More)
α-Glucosidase (AG) play crucial roles in the digestion of carbohydrates. Inhibitors of α-glucosidase (AGIs) are promising candidates for the development of anti-diabetic drugs. Here, five series of apigenin and chrysin nitric oxide (NO)-donating derivatives were synthesised and evaluated for their AG inhibitory activity and NO releasing capacity in vitro.(More)
