    ABSTRACT: A bisamide compound 1 possessing the pyrrolo[3,2-c]pyridine nucleus was synthesized and biologically evaluated. It was tested for kinase inhibitory activity over a panel of 47 kinases, and its selectivity toward the FMS kinase was accidentally discovered. Compound 1 was tested over a panel of seven ovarian, two prostate, and six breast cancer cell lines at a single dose concentration of 10 ┬ÁM and showed high activity. It was further tested in a 5-dose mode to determine its IC50 and total growth inhibition (TGI) values over the 15 cell lines. Compound 1 showed high potency on the submicromolar scale and good efficacy. The cytotoxic effect of compound 1 over peritoneal macrophages was also investigated. Compound 1 demonstrated higher selectivity against different cancer cell lines compared with HS-27 fibroblasts.

    ABSTRACT: Antimicrobial peptides are a group of natural or semi-synthetic molecules possessing antimicrobial activities against bacteria, fungi, viruses, parasites, etc. They are considered as promising candidates for treatment of microbial infections and suppression of microbial resistance. The increasing emergence of bacterial resistance has required development of new efficient antibiotics that can be added to the antibacterial armamentarium. The marine world provides a rich source of antimicrobial peptides. That world has not been highly explored yet, and much more effort is required in order to discover new efficient antimicrobial peptides. In the present article, we have reviewed the recent progress in the field of marine antimicrobial peptides from 2009 until the mid of 2012.

    ABSTRACT: A new series of diarylureas and diarylamides possessing 1H-pyrrolo[3,2-c]pyridine scaffold was designed and synthesized. Their in vitro antiproliferative activities against A375P human melanoma cell line and NCI-9 human melanoma cell line panel were tested. All the target compounds, except three amino derivatives 8g, h and 9h, demonstrated superior potencies against A375P to Sorafenib. In addition, compounds 8a and 9b-f demonstrated higher potencies than Vemurafenib against A375P. Compounds 8c and 9b were 7.50 and 454.90 times, respectively, more selective towards A375P melanoma cells over NIH3T3 fibroblasts. Furthermore, compounds 8d, e and 9a-d, f demonstrated very high potencies against the nine tested melanoma cell lines at the NCI. The bisamide derivatives 9a-c, f showed 2-digit nanomolar IC(50) values over different cell lines of the NCI-9 melanoma cell lines.
