Chemical modifications of cinchona alkaloids lead to enhanced inhibition of human butyrylcholinesterase.


Butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibitors were identified from a collection containing cinchonine, cinchonidine and synthetic derivatives, and further characterized using cytotoxicity and molecular docking studies. The most active ones were: (10 triple bond)-10,11-dibromo-10,11-dihydrocinchonidine (11), a competitive inhibitor with Ki = 3.45 +/- 0.39 microM… (More)
