Hide Abstract
Design and synthesis of new pyrimidine derivatives clubbed with thiazolidin-4-one from 4-(2-chlorophenyl)-6-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)pyrimidin-2-amine and their in vitro anticancer activities were screened at National Cancer Institute (NCI), USA against full NCI 60 cell lines. Compound 2 (NSC: 765735) exhibited remarkable growth inhibition at single dose (10 ?M) and encourage chosen for broadcast at 10-fold dilutions of five different concentrations (0.01, 0.1, 1, 10 and 100 ?M). The compound 2 was found better quality for Lung cancer cell line (HOP-92) by viewing growth inhibition (GI50 0.52) and no cytotoxicity seen (LC50 > 100). Molecular docking study was performed using Maestro 9.0 (Schrodinger Inc. USA) to provide binding mode into binding sites of CDK2. Compound 2 could be used as a lead compound for developing new potential anticancer agents.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The advent of Camptothecin added a new dimension in the field anticancer drug development containing quinoline motif. Quinoline scaffold plays an important role in anticancer drug development as their derivatives have shown excellent results through different mechanism of action such as growth inhibitors by cell cycle arrest, apoptosis, inhibition of angiogenesis, disruption of cell migration, and modulation of nuclear receptor responsiveness. The anti-cancer potential of several of these derivatives have been demonstrated on various cancer cell lines. In this review we have compiled and discussed specifically the anticancer potential of quinoline derivatives, which could provide a low-height flying bird's eye view of the quinoline derived compounds to a medicinal chemist for a comprehensive and target oriented information for development of clinically viable anticancer drugs.

Hide Abstract
A series of 1-(substituted-phenyl)-1-[(2-chloroquinolin-3-yl)methyl]thiocarbamide and 1-(substituted-phenyl)-1-[(2-chloroquinolin-3-yl)methyl]methylthiocarbamide derivatives was synthesized as antitubercular agent. The structure of quinolinyl amines and their thiocarbamide derivatives were established on the basis of IR, (1) H and (13) C-NMR and mass spectral data. All the compounds were tested in vitro for antimycobacterial activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (ATCC-25177) in Lowenstein-Jensen medium by well diffusion method and MIC by twofold serial dilution method. Results of the antitubercular screening revealed that compounds showed moderate to good antitubercular activity. Compound having two halogens in the phenyl rings viz. 3g, 3h, 4g, and 4h exhibited MIC of 50 ?g/mL. The computational parameters relevant to absorption and permeation of target compounds were also calculated and found to be well correlated with antitubercular activity.

Docking based virtual screening and molecular dynamics study to identify potential monoacylglycerol lipase inhibitors.
Bioorg. Med. Chem. Lett.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) is one of the key enzymes of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It hydrolyzes one of the major endocannabinoid, 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), an endogenous full agonist at G protein coupled cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. Numerous studies showed that MGL inhibitors are potentially useful for the treatment of pain, inflammation, cancer and CNS disorders. These provocative findings suggested that pharmacological inhibition of MAGL function may confer significant therapeutic benefits. In this study, we presented hybrid ligand and structure-based approaches to obtain a novel set of virtual leads as MAGL inhibitors. The constraints used in this study, were Glide score, binding free energy estimates and ADME properties to screen the ZINC database, containing approximately 21 million compounds. A total of seven virtual hits were obtained, which showed significant binding affinity towards MAGL protein. Ligand, ZINC24092691 was employed in complex form with the protein MAGL, for molecular dynamics simulation study, because of its excellent glide score, binding free energy and ADME properties. The RMSD of ZINC24092691 was observed to stay at 0.1 nm (1 Å) in most of the trajectories, which further confirmed its ability to inhibit the protein MAGL. The hits were then evaluated for their ability to inhibit human MAGL. The compound ZINC24092691 displayed the noteworthy inhibitory activity reducing MAGL activity to 21.15% at 100 nM concentration, with an IC50 value of 10 nM.

Hide Abstract
Depression is currently the fourth leading cause of disease or disability worldwide. Antidepressant is approved for the treatment of major depression (including paediatric depression), obsessive-compulsive disorder (in both adult and paediatric populations), bulimia nervosa, panic disorder and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Antidepressant is a psychiatric medication used to alleviate mood disorders, such as major depression and dysthymia and anxiety disorders such as social anxiety disorder. Many drugs produce an antidepressant effect, but restrictions on their use have caused controversy and off-label prescription a risk, despite claims of superior efficacy. Our current understanding of its pathogenesis is limited and existing treatments are inadequate, providing relief to only a subset of people suffering from depression. Reviews of literature suggest that heterocyclic moieties and their derivatives has proven success in treating depression.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
To investigate the functional sites on a protein and the prediction of binding sites (residues)in proteins, it is often required to identify the binding site residues at different distance threshold from protein three dimensional (3D)structures. For the study of a particular protein chain and its interaction with the ligand in complex form, researchers have to parse the output of different available tools or databases for finding binding-site residues. Here we have developed a tool for calculating amino acid contact distances in proteins at different distance threshold from the 3D-structure of the protein. For an input of protein 3D-structure, ContPro can quickly find all binding-site residues in the protein by calculating distances and also allows researchers to select the different distance threshold, protein chain and ligand of interest. Additionally, it can also parse the protein model (in case of multi model protein coordinate file)and the sequence of selected protein chain in Fasta format from the input 3D-structure. The developed tool will be useful for the identification and analysis of binding sites of proteins from 3D-structure at different distance thresholds.

Eur J Med Chem
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A series of pyrazolo[4,3-c]cinnoline derivatives was synthesized, characterized and evaluated for anti-inflammatory and antibacterial activity. Test compounds that exhibited good anti-inflammatory activity were further screened for their ulcerogenic and lipid peroxidation activity. Compounds 4d and 4l showed promising anti-inflammatory activity with reduced ulcerogenic and lipid peroxidation activity when compared to naproxen. Docking results of these two compounds with COX-2 (PDB ID: 1CX2) also exhibited a strong binding profile. Among the test derivatives, compound 4i displayed significant antibacterial property against gram-negative (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus) bacteria. However, compound 4b emerged as the best dual anti-inflammatory-antibacterial agent in the present study.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
