A series of pyrazoloquinoline analogs have been synthesized and shown to bind to PDE10 with high affinity. From the SAR study and our lead optimization efforts, compounds 16 and 27 were found to possess potent oral antipsychotic activity in the MK-801 induced hyperactive rat model.
The 70% aqueous methanolic extract of the Peruvian plant Polygonum cuspidatum sp. was found to contain two novel phenolic saccharides 1 and 2, which were identified as inhibitors of the bacterial DNA primase enzyme. Structures of these two compounds were established based on high resolution NMR studies. Compound 1 and 2 inhibited the primase enzyme with an(More)
A novel primase inhibitor, Sch 642305 (1), was isolated from the fermentation broth of the fungal culture Penicillium verrucosum. The structure of 1 was elucidated on the basis of MS and NMR spectroscopic data as a new and unusual bicyclic 10-membered macrolide. The absolute configuration of the asymmetric centers was determined by X-ray crystallographic(More)
[reaction: see text] A highly stereoselective synthesis of beta-amino sulfones and sulfonamides via addition of sulfonyl anions to chiral N-sulfinyl imines is described. The addition reaction proceeds in good yield (75-99%) and stereoselectivity.
Two novel chemokine receptor CCR-5 inhibitors, Sch 210971 (1) and Sch 210972 (2), were isolated from the fungal fermentation broth of Chaetomium globosum by normal- and reversed-phase HPLC purifications. The structure determination of 1 and 2 was accomplished on the basis of UV, MS, and NMR spectral data analyses including COSY, NOESY, HMQC, and HMBC(More)
Conformational and stereochemical analysis of six new symmetrical dimers was performed using proton-proton vicinal coupling measured from (1)H NMR and (13)C satellites of (1)H NMR signals, natural abundance (13)C-edited nuclear overhauser effect (NOE) experiments, comprehensive NOE analysis and molecular modeling. The (13)C satellite analysis and(More)
A novel fungal secondary metabolite, Sch 213766 was isolated from the fungal fermentation broth of Chaetomium globosum as the chemokine receptor CCR-5 inhibitor and shown to be the methyl ester of the previously described tetramic acid Sch 210972 on the basis of UV, MS and NMR spectral data analyses. Sch213766 exhibited an IC(50) value of 8.6 muM in the(More)
The 70% aqueous methanolic extract of the Chinese plant Aristolochia manshuriensis was found to contain two novel substituted phenanthrene compounds, SCH 546909 (1), and another phenanthrene glycoside (2). The structures of 1 and 2 were established based on NMR studies. They were identified as inhibitors of the CDK2 enzyme. Compound 1 was found to be a(More)
The 70% aq methanolic extract of the Peruvian plant Stylogne cauliflora was found to contain two novel oligophenolic compounds SCH 644343 (1) and SCH 644342 (2), which were identified as inhibitors of HCV NS3 protease. The structure of 1 and 2 was established based on high-resolution NMR studies. Compound 1 inhibited HCV NS3 protease with an IC(50) of 0.3(More)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of an active fraction from a marine sponge Topsentia sp. in our marine fraction library (MFL) led to the isolation and identification of halistanol sulfate (1) and a new sterol sulfate Sch 572423 (2). Compounds 1 and 2 were identified as P2Y(12) inhibitors with IC(50) of 0.48 and 2.2 microM, respectively. The general method of(More)
