One of the most promising anticancer and recent antimalarial targets is the heterodimeric zinc-containing protein farnesyltransferase (FT). In this work, we studied a highly diverse series of 192 Abbott-initiated imidazole-containing compounds and their FT inhibitory activities using 3D-QSAR and docking, in order to gain understanding of the interaction of(More)
Structure-activity relationship studies were carried out by chemical modification of manzamine A (1), 8-hydroxymanzamine A (2), manzamine F (14), and ircinal isolated from the sponge Acanthostrongylophora. The derived analogues were evaluated for antimalarial, antimicrobial, and antineuroinflammatory activities. Several modified products exhibited potent(More)
A 3D-QSAR investigation of 95 diaminobenzophenone yeast farnesyltransferase (FT) inhibitors selected from the work of Schlitzer et al. showed that steric, electrostatic, and hydrophobic properties play key roles in the bioactivity of the series. A CoMFA/CoMSIA combined model using the steric and electrostatic fields of CoMFA together with the hydrophobic(More)
As a part of our continuing efforts in discerning the structural and physicochemical requirements for selective COX-2 over COX-1 inhibition among the fused pyrazole ring systems, herein we report the QSAR analyses of the title compounds. The conformational flexibility of the title compounds was examined using a simple connection table representation. The(More)
Glycogen synthase kinase-3, a serine/threonine kinase, has been implicated in a wide variety of pathological conditions such as diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, stroke, bipolar disorder, malaria and cancer. Herein we report 3D-QSAR analyses using CoMFA and CoMSIA and molecular docking studies on 3-anilino-4-phenylmaleimides as GSK-3alpha inhibitors, in order(More)
Quaternary carbolinium salts have been reported to show improved antimalarial activity and reduced cytotoxicity as compared to electronically neutral beta-carbolines. In this study, mono- and di-methylated quaternary carbolinium cations of manzamine A were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antimalarial and antimicrobial activity, cytotoxicity,(More)
Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) analysis was performed on a series of 5, 6-diarylthiazolo [3, 2-b]-1, 2, 4-triazoles to explore their possible interaction with the active amino acid residues of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzyme. The significance of orientation and conformational rigidity of 5, 6-diarylthiazolo [3, 2-b]-1, 2, 4-triazoles(More)
A quantitative attempt has been made to correlate the structure-activity relationship (SAR) among the recently reported 6-amino-4-phenyltetrahydroquinoline derivatives as antagonists for the Gs-protein-coupled human follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) receptor. The compounds used for the present study have been reported to show high antagonistic efficacy in(More)
Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) studies have been performed on a combined series of 2-sulfonylphenyl-3-phenyl-indoles and 2-phenyl-3-sulfonylphenyl-indoles with a common 2,3 vicinal diaryl indole scaffold, recently reported as selective COX-2 inhibitors. This study is aimed to throw light on this, special class of diaryl heterocyclic(More)
