A series of anilino substituted pyrimidine sulfonamides were prepared and evaluated for their anticancer activity. These sulfonamides showed promising activity with IC(50) values ranging from 5.6 to 12.3 μM. The detailed biological aspects of some of the promising compounds (3d, 3e and 3g) on the K562 cell line were studied. Interestingly, compounds induced(More)
A series of benzothiazole and benzoxazole linked pyrrolobenzodiazepine conjugates attached through different alkane or alkylamide spacers was prepared. Their anticancer activity, DNA thermal denaturation studies, restriction endonuclease digestion assay and flow cytometric analysis in human melanoma cell line (A375) were investigated. One of the compounds(More)
Chrysin and its analogues, belongs to flavonoid family and possess potential anti-tumour activity. The aim of this study is to determine the molecular mechanism by which chrysin controls cell growth and induce apoptosis in A375 cells. Effect of chrysin and its analogues on cell viability and cell cycle analysis was determined by MTT assay and flowcytometry.(More)
It has previously been shown that anthranilamide-pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine conjugates activate p53 and cause apoptosis in cervical cancer cells such as HeLa and SiHa. Here we establish the role of these conjugates in activating p53 pathway by phosphorylation at Ser15, 20 and 46 residues and downregulate key oncogenic proteins such as MYCN and Mdm2 in IMR-32(More)
A series of new 3,5-diaryl isoxazoline/isoxazole linked 2,3-dihydro quinazolinone hybrids with different linker architectures have been designed and synthesized. These compounds have been evaluated for their anticancer activity. One of the compounds 4c amongst this series has shown promising anticancer activity. Further some detailed biological assays(More)
Argonaute-1 (Ago-1) plays a crucial role in gene regulation and genome stability via biogenesis of small non-coding RNAs. Two “Argonaute” family genes, piwi and Ago-2 in Drosophila are involved in multiple silencing mechanisms in the nucleus, transgene cosuppression, long-distant chromosome interaction, nuclear organization and heterochromatin formation. To(More)
In Drosophila embryos, checkpoints maintain genome stability by delaying cell cycle progression that allows time for damage repair or to complete DNA synthesis. Drosophila MOF, a member of MYST histone acetyl transferase is an essential component of male X hyperactivation process. Until recently its involvement in G2/M cell cycle arrest and defects in(More)
A series of novel quinazolinone linked pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD) conjugates were synthesized. These compounds 4a-f and 5a-f were prepared in good yields by linking C-8 of DC-81 with quinazolinone moiety through different alkane spacers. These conjugates were tested for anticancer activity against 11 human cancer cell lines and found to be very potent(More)
aza-Flavanones have been identified as a new class of selective microRNA inhibitors. These compounds were found to arrest cell cycle via a novel cross species microRNA-dependent regulatory pathway interpreting an unexpected link between cell cycle arrest and microRNA mediated control in cancer.
A series of new estradiol linked pyrrolo[2,1-c][1,4]benzodiazepine (E(2)-PBD) conjugates (3a-f, 4a-f and 5a-f) with different linker architectures including a triazole moiety have been designed and synthesized. All the 18 compounds have been evaluated for their anticancer activity and it is observed that some of the compounds particularly 4c-e and 5c,d(More)
