Asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of a new N-tosyltetrahydrocarbazole-1-one ester with the Noyori-Ikariya catalyst
Enantioselective reduction of a new 1-oxotetrahydrocarbazole compound (ethyl 2-(1-oxo-9-tosyl-2,3,4,9-tetrahydro-1H-carbazol-2-yl)acetate) through asymmetric transfer hydrogenation by using the commercially available Noyori–Ikariya ruthenium catalyst and HCO2H/Et3N or HCO2H/DABCO as the hydrogen source have been investigated. High enantiomeric excesses (up to 96% ee) and moderate to good yields (24–72%) for corresponding alcohol and lactone compounds have been achieved. Structures of all compounds have been characterized by spectroscopic techniques.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc2307.2838 Keywords Asymmetric transfer hydrogenation Noyori–Ikariya ruthenium catalyst Chiral tetrahydrocarbazoles N-Tosyltetrahydrocarbazolone Enantioselective lactone synthesis Available online: September 14, 2023 DETAILS DOWNLOAD PDF © ACG Publications.

Synthesis and biological evaluation of [1,2,3]triazolo[4',5':3,4]pyrrolo[1,2-a] indoles: one-pot reaction under microwave irradiation
The synthesis and structural determination of several new fused [1,2,3]triazolo-[4',5':3,4]pyrrolo-[1,2-a]indole derivatives (4a-4p) utilising 1HNMR, 13CNMR, and mass spectrum analysis were discussed. The in vitro antibacterial activity of the compounds (4a-4p) against three gramme positive bacterial strains such as B.subtilis, S.aureus, and S.epidermidis revealed that the compounds 4h, 4j, and 4k demonstrated greater activity than the remaining compounds. Compounds 4d, 4i, and 4l had comparable activity to the standard. The antioxidant activity screening findings show that compounds 4c, 4d, and 4j have higher activity than conventional Trolox. Compounds 4b, 4h, 4k, and 4l have high activity, whereas the remaining compounds have moderate to low activity.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.155.2307.2833 Keywords Indole fused 1,2,3-triazoles MWI antibacterial activity antioxidant activity Available online: September 06, 2023 DETAILS DOWNLOAD PDF © ACG Publications.

Novel oxalamide derivatives for COXs expression and breast cancer: design, synthesis, biological evaluation, and docking studies
IIn the present study, new oxalamide-based compounds were designed from thalidomide and synthesized easily and with high yields (from 69% up to 93%) by a two-step method. The antiproliferative effects of synthesized 6a-d and 7a-d compounds on (ER+) MCF-7 and (ER-) MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cell line and human fibroblast WI-38 healthy cell line were investigated by the MTT method. The results showed that compound 7d was the most potent candidate against both MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 cell lines with IC50 = 4.72 µM and 6.37 µM, respectively. To investigate whether antiproliferative effect of the compounds on breast cancer cell lines is dependent on COXs, expressions of COX-1/2 on the MCF-7 cell line were investigated by the Western-Blot technique. Among synthesized compounds, compound 7d increased the expression of both COX-1 and COX-2. The inhibition potential of compounds on COX-1/2 enzymes was investigated by molecular docking compared to inhibitor co-ligand celecoxib in crystal structures of COX-1 (PDB ID: 3KK6) and COX-2 (PDB ID: 3LN1). Docking results indeed showed that compound 7d had a higher binding affinity for both COX-1 and COX-2 active sites. Consequently, the novel oxalamide-based compounds presented here may be important candidate molecules for the development of new COX-dependent antiproliferative agents.DOI http://doi.org/10.25135/acg.oc.154.2306.2820 Keywords Oxalamides antiproliferation western-blotting COXs expression molecular docking Available online: August 15, 2023 DETAILS DOWNLOAD PDF © ACG Publications.
