The effect of Glu→Asp substitution on a 310 type fold in


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07C

The solution conformation of the peptide Boc-(d)-Asp1-Ala2-Gly3-Lys4-NHMe based on NMR studies is compared with its (d)-Glu1 analog reported earlier. Results establish that (d)-Asp analog is devoid of the salt bridge and is a complex ensemble of consecutive folds.

Synthesis and antimicrobial investigation of some novel phenyl pyrazole, azetidinone and diazenyl ethanone derivatives of benzofurans


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

Salicylaldehyde and 2-hydroxy acetophenone on reaction with chloroacetone afford corresponding benzofurans 2a and 2b. The compounds 2a and 2b on treatment with phenylhydrazine in ethanol give 3a-d. The products 3a-d underwent cyclization to produce substituted pyrazoles 4a-d. The compounds 2a-b on treatment with aromatic amines afford 5a-h, these on treatment with chloroacetyl chloride produced azetidinones 6a-h. The compounds 2a and 2b with various diazotized aromatic amines produced phenyl diazenyl benzofurans 7a-h. Their antimicrobial activities have been evaluated.

Synthesis and pharmacological study of thiazolidinones and mannich bases of 4-amino-3-mercapto-5-pyridin-3-yl-[1,2,4]-triazole


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

4-Amino-5-(3-pyridyl)-4H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thiol 1 is prepared from methyl nicotinate through a multi-step reaction sequence1. Compound 1 react with various aromatic aldehydes in the presence of gl. acetic acid to give 4-substituted-benzal-amino-3-mercapto-5-pyridin-3yl-[1,2,4]-triazoles 2a-i, which on further cyclocondensation with thioacetic acid afforded 3-(3-mercapto-5-pyridin-3’’-yl-[1, 2, 4]-triazole-4-yl)-2-aryl-1,3-thiazolidin-4-ones 3a-i. Compounds 2a-i on reaction with formaldehyde and with different aromatic amines in dioxane yielded 2-[bis-aryl-amino-methyl]-5-pyridin-3-yl-4-substi­tuted-banzal-amino-2,3-di­­­hydro-[1,2,4]-triazlole-3-thiones 4a-i. The pharmacological evaluations have been performed for their antimicrobial and antitubercular activities.
