Despite significant progress in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, their occurrence and mortality are still high around theworld. The resistance of cancer cells to the drugs remains a significant problem in oncology today,while in the case of neuro-degenerative diseases, therapies reversing the process are still yet to be found. Furthermore, it is important to seek new...
Tacrine is a potent inhibitor of cholinesterases (acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase) that shows limiting clinical application by liver toxicity. In spite of this, analogues of tacrine are considered as a model inhibitor of cholinesterases in the therapy of Alzheimer’s disease. The interest in these compounds is mainly related to a high variety of their structure and biological properties. In the present review, we...
Synthesis and biological evaluation of fluorinated N-benzoyl and N-phenylacetoyl derivatives of 3-(4-aminophenyl)-coumarin-7-O-sulfamate as steroid sulfatase inhibitors
In the present work, we report convenient methods for the synthesis of 3-(4-aminophenyl)-coumarin-7-O-sulfamate derivatives N-acylated with fluorinated analogues of benzoic or phenylacetic acid as steroid sulfatase (STS) inhibitors. The design of these potential STS inhibitors was supported by molecular modeling techniques. Additionally, computational docking methods were used to determine the binding modes of the synthesized inhibitors...
