The design, synthesis and structure activity relationship studies of a series of compounds from benzo[d]imidazo[5,1-b]thiazole scaffold as phosphodiesterase 10A (PDE10A) inhibitors are discussed. Several potent analogs with heteroaromatic substitutions (9a-d) were identified. The anticipated binding mode of these analogs was confirmed by performing the in(More)
Oxazolidinones are known to inhibit protein biosynthesis and act against a wide spectrum of gram-positive bacteria. A new investigational oxazolidinone, ranbezolid, inhibited bacterial protein synthesis in Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis. In S. epidermidis, ranbezolid showed inhibition of cell wall and lipid synthesis and a(More)
Substituted 1,4-dihydropyridines were discovered as a novel and potent series of phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) inhibitors. Structure-activity relationships within this series have been carried out and studies revealed that the dihydropyridine core, with indole moiety and 3,4-dimethoxybenzyl group, is a potent analogue for PDE4 inhibition. These novel series of(More)
Leelamine is an anticancer chemotherapeutic agent inhibiting intracellular cholesterol transport. Cell death mediated by leelamine occurs due to the lysosomotropic property of the compound, its accumulation in the lysosome, and inhibition of cholesterol transport leading to lack of availability for key processes required for functioning of cancer cells. The(More)
The Ser/Thr protein kinase MAPKAP kinase2 (MAPKAPK2 or MK2) plays an important role in inflammation. A comparison of several crystal structures of MK2 shows that differences in active and inactive conformations result in large part from structural variations within the conformations of the glycine rich loop (p-loop) regions. We propose the most preferred(More)
Designing drug candidates exhibiting polypharmacology is one of the strategies adopted by medicinal chemists to address multifactorial diseases. Metabolic disease is one such multifactorial disorder characterized by hyperglycaemia, hypertension and dyslipidaemia among others. In this paper we report a new class of molecular framework combining the(More)
Rhazya stricta is a unique medicinal plant source for many indole alkaloids, non-alkaloids, flavonoids, triterpenes and other unknown molecules with tremendous potential for therapeutic applications against many diseases. In the present article, we generated computational data on predictive properties and activity across two key therapeutic areas of cancer(More)
