Novel curcumin-based pyrano[2,3-d]pyrimidine anti-oxidant inhibitors for α-amylase and α-glucosidase: Implications for their pleiotropic effects against diabetes complications.

Curcumin (bis-α,β-unsaturated β-diketone), the chief constituent of turmeric plant (Curcuma longa), plays significant role in prevention of various diseases including diabetes. The research objective in the current study was to synthesize novel anti-diabetic curcumin derivatives with inhibitory properties against α-amylase (α-Amy) and α-glucosidase (α-Gls… (More)
