Antibodies against the amino-terminal domain of the Plasmodium falciparum P0 phosphoriboprotein were detected extensively in immune people living in malaria endemic areas of India. It has been shown earlier that specific antibodies raised against the PfP0N domain (17-61 amino acid) of the PfP0 protein inhibit P. falciparum growth in vitro. To study the(More)
mPGES-1 is inducible terminal synthase acting downstream of COX enzymes in arachidonic acid pathway, regulates the biosynthesis of pro-inflammatory prostaglandin PGE2. Cardiovascular side effect of coxibs and NSAIDs, selective for COX-2 inhibition, stimulated interest in mPGES-1, a therapeutic target with potential to deliver safe and effective(More)
This letter describes the synthesis and biological evaluation of furan and dihydrofuran-fused tricyclic benzo[d]imidazole derivatives as novel mPGES-1 inhibitors, capable of inhibiting an increased PGE2 production in the disease state. Structure-activity optimization afforded many potent mPGES-1 inhibitors having <50 nM potencies in the A549 cellular assay(More)
The discovery and SAR of potent, selective dioxane-fused tricyclic benz[d]imidazole derivatives as mPGES-1 inhibitor are herein described. Various amide modifications in this series afforded many potent mPGES-1 inhibitors, of which 17d proved to be suitable for further profiling in vivo. Compound 17d(More)
A series of substituted tricyclic 4,4-dimethyl-3,4-dihydrochromeno[3,4-d]imidazole derivatives have been synthesized and their mPGES-1 biological activity has been disclosed in detail. Structure-activity relationship (SAR) optimization provided inhibitors with excellent mPGES-1 potency and low to moderate PGE2 release A549 cell potency. Among the mPGES-1(More)
