A series of bisindole-pyrrolobenzodiazepine conjugates (5a-f) linked through different alkane spacers was prepared and evaluated for their anticancer activity. All compounds exhibited significant anticancer potency and the most potent compounds 5b and 5e were taken up for detailed studies on MCF-7 cell line. Cell cycle effects were examined apart from(More)
A library of new aryl-substituted naphthalene C8-linked pyrrolo[2,1-c][1,4]benzodiazepine (PBD) conjugates with various linker architectures were designed, synthesized, and evaluated for their anticancer activity against a panel of 11 human cancer cell lines. All 32 conjugates show anticancer potential, with some of them exhibiting particularly high(More)
A series of new 4β-sulphonamido and 4β-[(4'-sulphonamido)benzamide] conjugates of podophyllotoxin (11a-j and 15a-g) were synthesized and evaluated for anticancer activity against six human cancer cell lines and found to be more potent than etoposide. Some of the compounds 11b, 11d and 11e that showed significant antiproliferative activity in Colo-205 cells,(More)
The role of Ago-1 in microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis has been thoroughly studied, but little is known about its involvement in mitotic cell cycle progression. In this study, we established evidence of the regulatory role of Ago-1 in cell cycle control in association with the G2/M cyclin, cyclin B. Immunostaining of early embryos revealed that the maternal(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)
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)
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 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)
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 new class of imidazo[2,1-b]thiazole chalcone derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their anticancer activity. These chalcone derivatives show promising activity, with log GI(50) values ranging from -7.51 to -4.00. The detailed biological aspects of these derivatives toward the MCF-7 cell line were studied. Interestingly, these chalcone(More)
