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)
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)
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)
Two series of closely related antimalarial agents, 7-chloro-4-(3',5'-disubstituted anilino)quinolines, have been analyzed using Combinatorial Protocol in Multiple Linear Regression (CP-MLR) for the structure-activity relations with more than 450 topological descriptors for each set. The study clearly suggested that 3'- and 5'-substituents of the anilino(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)
Fatty acid biosynthesis is essential for most of the bacterial survival. Components of this biosynthetic pathway have been identified as attractive targets for the development of new antibacterial agents. FabH, beta-ketoacyl-ACP synthase III, is a attractive target since it is central to the initiation of fatty acid biosynthesis. Quantitative(More)
Inhibition of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling is considered to be a promising treatment strategy for estrogen receptor (ER)-negative breast tumors. We have investigated here the anti-breast cancer properties of a novel anti-proliferative benzopyran compound namely, 2-[piperidinoethoxyphenyl]-3-phenyl-2H-benzo(b)pyran (CDRI-85/287) in ER-(More)
The antimycobacterial activity of nitro/acetamido alkenol derivatives and chloro/amino alkenol derivatives has been analyzed through combinatorial protocol in multiple linear regression (CP-MLR) using different topological descriptors obtained from Dragon software. Among the topological descriptor classes considered in the study, the activity is correlated(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)
