In order to produce potent new leads for anticancer drugs, a new series of quinazoline analogs was designed to resemble methotrexate (MTX, 1) structure features and fitted with functional groups believed to enhance inhibition of mammalian DHFR activity. Molecular modeling studies were used to assess the fit of these compounds within the active site of human(More)
A new series of 2,6-substituted-quinazolin-4-ones was designed, synthesized, and evaluated for their in vitro DHFR inhibition, antimicrobial, and antitumor activities. Compounds 22, 33-37, 39-43, and 45 proved to be active DHFR inhibitors with IC(50) range of 0.4-1.0microM. Compound 18 showed broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity comparable to the known(More)
The synthesis of some new 2-thieno-4(3H)-quinazolinone derivatives and their biological evaluation as antitumor agents using the National Cancer Institute (NCI) disease oriented antitumor screen protocol are investigated. Compounds 2-(2-thienylcarbonylamino)-5-iodo-N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-benzamide (16),(More)
Novel derivatives of quinazoline (1-27) have been synthesized and tested for their antitumor activity against three tumor cell lines among these cell lines the human breast carcinoma cell line (MCF-7) in which EGFR is highly expressed. All tested compounds showed potent and selective activity against breast cancer (MCF-7) with IC(50) range of 3.35-6.81(More)
A new series of 2-substituted mercapto-3H-quinozolines bearing 6-iodo and 2-heteroarylthio functions was synthesized and screened for their in vitro antitumor activity. Eighteen compounds were identified as active anticancer agents. N'-[(3-Benzyl-4-oxo-6-iodo-3H-quinazoline-2-yl)thioacetyl]-N(3)-ethylthiosemicarbazide (10),(More)
A new series of quinazoline analogs was designed, synthesized, and evaluated for their anticonvulsant activity. Compounds 6, 12, 21, 36, 37, and 38 showed 70–100 % protection against PTZ-induced seizures acting as GABAA receptor agonists. Compound N-(3,4,5,6-tetrachloro-phthalimido)-2-[(3-phenyl-4-oxo-6-methyl-3H-quinazolin-2-yl)-thio]acetamide (12)(More)
New series of quinolines 2, 6, 7, 9, 14-17, 20, 21; pyrano[3,2-c]quinolines 3, 4, 5, 11; furo[3,2-c]quinolines 8, 18; oxazino[5,6-c]quinoline 19 and thieno[3,4-b]quinoline 22 were prepared and the impact of synthesized compounds on some pathogenic microorganisms isolated from clinical samples was studied. Compounds 4, 11 and 14 were found to be the most(More)
In this study, we have synthesized a series of 3H-quinazolin-4-ones in order to obtain new compounds with potential analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity. The structures of the newly synthesized compounds were confirmed by means of infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectroscopy. Some compounds were evaluated for their analgesic and(More)
A novel series of 6-chloro-2-p-tolylquinazolinone and substituted-(4-methylbenzamido)benzamide (1-20) were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their in-vitro antitumor activity. Compounds 3, 14 and 16 possessed remarkable broad-spectrum antitumor activity. Compound 16 was found to be a particularly active growth inhibitor of the renal cancer (GI50 =(More)
