A series of C-3 alkyl and arylalkyl 2,3-dideoxy hex-2-enopyranoside derivatives were synthesized by Morita-Baylis-Hillman reaction using enulosides 4, 5, and 6 and various aliphatic and aromatic aldehydes. The compounds were evaluated in vitro for the complete inhibition of growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv. They exhibited moderate to good activity(More)
Comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) and comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA) were performed on thiazolidin-4-one class of compounds as HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (HIV-1 RT) inhibitors using global minima and crystal structure conformations. Results obtained from the crystal structure-based model yielded superior statistical(More)
The HIV-1 RT inhibitory activity of 2-(2,6-dihalophenyl)-3-(substituted pyridin-2-yl)-thiazolidin-4-ones has been analyzed with different topological descriptors obtained from DRAGON software. Here, simple topological descriptors (TOPO), Galvez topological charge indices (GVZ) and 2D autocorrelation descriptors (2DAUTO) have been found to yield good(More)
The inhibition of dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) has emerged as an attractive target in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. In view of this development, a critical analysis of structural requirements of the DPP-IV inhibitors is envisioned to identify the significant features toward design of selective inhibitors. The comparative molecular field analysis(More)
Cypermethrin is reported to affect astrocytes in rat brain; however, its mechanism of action is obscure. Here, we observed an increase in apoptosis in the cortical astrocytes upon treatment of rats with cypermethrin. We then characterized the mechanism governing the apoptosis. Because the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling regulates the(More)
The quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR) of the Aldose Reductase (AR) inhibitory activity of 48 flavones were studied using Free-Wilson, Combinatorial Protocol in Multiple Linear Regression (CP-MLR), and Partial Least Squares (PLS) procedures. For the latter two procedures 152 Molconn-Z parameters and six indicators corresponding to the(More)
The human A(3) adenosine receptor agonistic activity of 2-chloro-N(6)-substituted-4'-thioadenosine-5'-uronamides has been analyzed through Combinatorial Protocol in Multiple Linear Regression (CP-MLR) using 488 topological descriptors obtained from DRAGON software for the energy minimized 3D-structures of these molecules. Among the various descriptor(More)
The malonyl-CoA decarboxylase (MCD) inhibition activity of derivatives of N-alkyl-N-(1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoro-2-hydroxypropylphenyl)amide has been analyzed through combinatorial protocol in multiple linear regression (CP-MLR) using different topological descriptors obtained from Dragon software for the energy minimized 3D-structures of these molecules. Among(More)
The structure-activity models of the VEGFR2 kinase inhibitory activity of the derivatives of 2-anilino-5-aryloxazole have been investigated using Combinatorial Protocol in Multiple Linear Regression (CP-MLR) with nearly 500 topological descriptors which were calculated from DRAGON software. Among the descriptor classes considered collectively in the study,(More)
A series of 4-thiazolidinones were evaluated as selective inhibitors of the HIV-RT enzyme. Our attempt in correlating the derived physicochemical properties with the HIV-RT inhibitory activity resulted in some statistically significant QSAR models with good predictive ability. The QSAR studies indicated the role of lipophilicity, dipole moment and(More)
