MAO inhibitory activity modulation: 3-Phenylcoumarins versus 3-benzoylcoumarins.

With the aim of finding the structural features for the human MAO inhibitory activity and selectivity, in the present communication we report the synthesis, pharmacological evaluation and a comparative study of a new series of 3-phenylcoumarins (compounds 1-4) and 3-benzoylcoumarins (compounds 5-8). A bromo atom and a methoxy/hydroxy substituent were… CONTINUE READING
