Quinone antitumour agents with wide spectrum of activity have been extensively used in different forms of human cancers. Quinones have been isolated either from animals, microorganisms or plants. Extensive research on quinone compounds is going on to discover novel effective antitumour compound. We also discussed the mechanism of action, which have not been(More)
As a part of our program to discover novel analogues of 7-azaindole (1H-Pyrrolo[2,3-b] pyridine) having useful biological activities, some derivatives have been synthesized and evaluated for their analgesic and hypotensive activity. Compounds evaluated by thermal stimuli (tail immersion method) at the dose of 50 mg/kg of body weight revealed significant(More)
The neuropharmacologic profile of harmala alkaloids has been studied and found to have central effects like convulsions, catalepsy, or altered startle response. In number of studies the effects of diazepam, on harmaline and other beta carboline containing compounds-induced tremors were investigated. The present study was undertaken to examine the effect of(More)
In the present study two phenacyl derivatives of Harmaline; 2-(7-Methoxy-1-methyl-1,3,4,9-tetrahydro-beta-carbolin-2-yl)-1-(3-nitro-phenyl)-ethanone and 1-(3,4-Dihydroxy-phenyl)-2-(7-methoxy-1-methyl-1,3,4,9-tetrahydro-beta-carbolin-2-yl)-ethanone were synthesized and evaluated for their effect on behaviour of mice, only meta-nitro phenacyl derivative(More)
In present study the effects of chlorpromazine (CPZ) were studied on NA, DA and its metabolities i.e. DOPAC and HVA as well as on 5-HT and its metabolite 5-HIAA in normal and hyperglycemic rats. Significant differences were noted in brain biogenic amines of normal and diabetic control animals. In case of CPZ treated normal and hyperglycemic rats significant(More)
