A series of hydroxyurea derivatives have been synthesized and elucidated by means of FT-IR, (1)H-, (13)C-NMR and MS. The exact stereostructures of representative compounds have been determined by X-ray crystal structure analysis. In the crystals, inversion dimers linked by pairs of N-H...O hydrogen bonds occurred, and further N-H...O links led to chains of(More)
α-Glucosidase is a therapeutic target for diabetes mellitus, and α-glucosidase inhibitors play a vital role in the treatments for the disease. As a kind of potentially safer α-glucosidase inhibitor, flavonoids have attached much attention currently. In this study, kaempferol was found to show a notable inhibition activity on α-glucosidase in a mixed-type(More)
A series of 3-benzyloxyhydantoin derivatives were designed and synthesized by introducing hydroxyurea pharmacophore into hydantoin rigid scaffold. The cytotoxic activities of the target compounds were evaluated in vitro against three cancer cell lines. Compounds 5b, 5c, 5e, 5g, 6c and 6g displayed high activity on all of the three cancer cell lines and the(More)
Chrysin, a bioactive flavonoid, was investigated for its potential to inhibit the activity of xanthine oxidase (XO), a key enzyme catalyzing xanthine to uric acid and finally causing gout. The kinetic analysis showed that chrysin possessed a strong inhibition on XO ability in a reversible competitive manner with IC50 value of (1.26±0.04)×10(-6)molL(-1). The(More)
Xanthine oxidase (XO) is a key enzyme catalyzing hypoxanthine to xanthine and then uric acid causing hyperuricemia. A Cu(II) complex of chrysin was synthesized and characterized by UV-vis absorption, Fourier transform infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) and mass spectroscopy studies. The interaction of Cu(II)-complex with XO was investigated by(More)
Dietary guidelines to promote health are usually based on the patterns' prediction on disease risk of foods and nutrients. Overactivity of xanthine oxidase (XO) is the underlying cause of gout. Herein, the inhibitory kinetics and mechanism of dietary vitamins D3 and B2 on XO were investigated by multispectroscopic methods and a molecular modeling technique.(More)
An ultra high-performance liquid chromatography/quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry method was established to detect and identify the chemical constituents and metabolites of HuanglianShangqing pill (HLSQ) in vitro and in vivo. A total of 96 compounds were characterized in HLSQ extracts. In vivo, 45 prototype components and 53 metabolites of HLSQ(More)
Myricetin, a plant-derived flavonol, was found to inhibit the formation of uric acid in a mixed-type manner with IC50 value of (8.66±0.03)×10-6molL-1 and more potently inhibit the generation of superoxide anion (O2-) catalysed by xanthine oxidase (XOD) with IC50 value of (4.55±0.02)×10-6molL-1. Inhibiting O2- generation by myricetin may be attributed to the(More)
The flavonoid family has been reported to possess a high potential for inhibition of xanthine oxidase (XO). This study concerned the structural aspects of inhibitory activities and binding affinities of flavonoids as XO inhibitors. The result indicated that the hydrophobic interaction was important in the binding of flavonoids to XO, and the XO inhibitory(More)
Psoralen (PSO) is a naturally occurring furanocoumarin with a variety of pharmacological activities, however very limited information on the interaction of PSO with trypsin is available. In this study, the binding characteristics between PSO and trypsin at physiological pH were investigated using a combination of fluorescence, UV-vis absorption, circular(More)
