A series of novel and highly active acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase inhibitors derived from substituted benzothiazoles containing an imidazolidine-2,4,5-trione moiety were synthesized and characterized. The molecular structure of 1-(2,6-diisopropyl-phenyl)-3-[(1R)-1-(6-fluoro-1,3-benzothiazol-2-yl)ethyl]-imidazolidine-2,4,5-trione (3g) was(More)
A series of twenty-five novel salicylanilide N-alkylcarbamates were investigated as potential acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. The compounds were tested for their ability to inhibit acetylcholinesterase (AChE) from electric eel (Electrophorus electricus L.). Experimental lipophilicity was determined, and the structure-activity relationships are discussed.(More)
The pI50 index and separation coefficients of chosen 3-N,N-diethylaminophenyl-N',N'-dialkylcarbamates were determined. Index pL50 (pI50 = negative logarithm of molar concentration of inhibitor inhibiting the enzyme activity by 50%) describes the effectiveness of the inhibitor. The rate of ability of the inhibitor to pass the blood-brain barrier is usually(More)
Kinetics and the mechanism of total in vitro hydrolyses (i.e. up to the exhaustion of substrate) of acetylcholine and acetylthiocholine by acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase were studied in vitro in a batch reactor at 25 degrees C, pH 8 and ionic strength of 0.11 M. Every hydrolysis was monitored by 2-3 independent analytical methods. All(More)
A new series of 27 diethyl 2-(phenylcarbamoyl)phenyl phosphorothioates (thiophosphates) was synthesized, characterized by NMR, IR and CHN analyses and evaluated against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv, Mycobacterium avium and two strains of Mycobacterium kansasii. The best activity against M. tuberculosis was found for(More)
A new and simple analytical method is described for the determination of the IC50 values of the inhibitors of the hydrolysis of acetylcholine (ACh) or acetylthiocholine (ATCh) by cholinesterases. The method is based on monitoring the time course of the pH value during the uninhibited and inhibited reaction. It requires only a pH meter with a suitable pH(More)
