Licochalone C (7a) is a retrochalcone isolated from Glycyrrhiza inflata, which shows potent antioxidant properties and inhibition of bacterial growth and cellular respiration. Biological studies have suggested that licochalcone C attenuates the lipopolysaccharide and interferon-gamma induced inflammatory response by decreasing the expression and activity of(More)
The limitations of established serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) and norepinephrine (NE) reuptake inhibitors necessitate the development of safer and more effective therapeutic agents. Based on the structures of 4-benzylpiperidine carboxamides and trazodone, arylpiperazine-benzylpiperidines with chemical scaffolds different from those of marketed drugs(More)
A series of 4-benzylpiperidine carboxamides were designed and synthesized, and tested for their dual (serotonin and norepinephrine) reuptake inhibition. The synthesis of 4-benzylpiperidine carboxamides involved two main steps: amidation and substitution. Derivatives with 3 carbon linker displayed better activity than with 2 carbon linker. 4-Biphenyl- and(More)
Monoamine transporters regulate the concentration of monoamine neurotransmitters, which are essential for vital physiological processes, and their dysfunction can cause several central nervous system diseases. Monoamine transporters currently appear to be the potential target in the management of these disorders. In this study, homologation and(More)
In this study, we aimed to demonstrate the antidiabetic potential of (E)-N-(4-(3-(5-bromo-4-hydroxy-2-methoxyphenyl)acryloyl) phenyl)-4-tert-butylbenzamide (SN158) through peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-α/γ dual activation. SN158 interacted with both PPARα and PPARγ, and increased their transcriptional activities. Simultaneously, SN158(More)
In the search for potent dual norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake inhibitors, several substituted arylpiperazine-tetrazoles were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their neurotransmitter reuptake inhibitory activities. Various derivatives exhibited selective and strong neurotransmitter reuptake inhibitory activity. In particular, compounds with a(More)
The dopamine D3 receptor (D3R) preferential ligands have been universally adopted as a strategy for the treatment of drug addiction and other neuropsychiatric disorders due to fewer side effects. However, the high sequence homology between D3R and the D2 receptor (D2R) challenges the development of D3R-biased compounds. Herein, we design and synthesize a(More)
