Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) is based on the hypothesis that changes in molecular structure reflect changes in the observed response or biological activity. The success of any quantitative structure–activity relationship model depends on the accuracy of the input data, selection of appropriate descriptors, statistical tools and the(More)
Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) have been actively explored as anti-cancer agents due to their ability to prevent deacetylation of histones, resulting in uncoiling of chromatin and stimulation of a range of genes associated in the regulation of cell survival, proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. During the past several years, many HDACi have(More)
A series of novel N(1)-{5-[(naphthalene-2-yloxy)methyl]-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl}-N(4)-(4-substitutedbenzaldehyde)-semicarbazone, N(1)-{5-[(naphthalene-2-yloxy)methyl]-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl}-N(4)-[1-(4-substitutedphenyl)ethanone]-semicarbazone and N(1)-{5-[(naphthalene-2-yloxy)methyl]-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl}-N(4)-[1-(4-substitutedphenyl) (phenyl)(More)
The incomplete seizure control with frequent adverse effects of current anticonvulsant drugs and the importance of semicarbazones, quinazolines and 2,5-disubstituted 1,3,4-thiadiazoles as anticonvulsant pharmacophore prompted us to carry out synthesis of three novel series of semicarbazones containing 1,3,4-thiadiazole and quinazoline ring. The chemical(More)
Tubulin protein is a highly imperative and feasible goal for anticancer drug discovery. Hundreds of naturally occurring, semi synthetic and synthetic antitubulin agents have been reported till now. Among these, Combretastatin A - 4 (CA - 4) is effective antimitotic agent possessing potent cytotoxicity against a panel of cancer cells, including multi-drug(More)
A new series of 3-(benzylideneamino)-2-phenylquinazoline-4(3H)-ones were prepared through Schiff base formation of 3-amino-2-phenyl quinazoline-4(3)H-one with various substituted carbonyl compounds. Their chemical structures were elucidated by spectral studies. Cytotoxicity and antiviral activity were evaluated against herpes simplex virus-1 (KOS), herpes(More)
The enzymatic inhibition of histone deacetylase activity has come out as a novel and effectual means for the treatment of cancer. Two novel series of 2-[5-(4-substitutedphenyl)-[1,3,4]-oxadiazol/thiadiazol-2-ylamino]-pyrimidine-5-carboxylic acid (tetrahydro-pyran-2-yloxy)-amides were designed and synthesized as novel hydroxamic acid based histone(More)
Ketorolac (KC) suffers from the general side effects of NSAIDs, owing to presence of free carboxylic acid group. The study aimed to retard the adverse effects of gastrointestinal origin. Ten prodrugs of KC were synthesized by amidation with ethyl esters of amino acids, namely, glycine, l-phenylalanine, l-tryptophan, l-valine, l-isoleucine, l-alanine,(More)
OBJECTIVES A series of 3(benzylideneamino)-2-phenyl quinazoline-4(3H)-ones was synthesized by reaction of 3-amino-2-phenyl-3H-quinazoline-4-one with various carbonyl compounds. MATERIALS AND METHODS Chemical structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by IR, 1H-NMR and mass spectral analysis. Title compounds were investigated for cytotoxicity(More)
A QSAR study on a series of sulfonamides incorporating 1,3,5-triazine derivatives was performed to explore the physicochemical parameters responsible for their inhibitory activity of carbonic anhydrase I (CA-I) inhibitors. Physicochemical parameters were calculated using WIN CAChe 6.1. Stepwise multiple linear regression analysis was carried out to derive(More)
