Article
The selective inhibition of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) has become an interesting goal for the treatment of diseases where the immune and inflammatory response of the organism is involved. Septic shock is one prominent example of this type of affections. In this paper, the design and synthesis of twelve substituted pyridinyl- imidamide d...
Article
In search of new Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) inhibitor agents, two isosteric series of derivatives with an imidamide scaffold (one of them with a hydroxyl group and the other with a carbonyl one) were synthesized and evaluated on inducible (iNOS) and neuronal (nNOS) isoforms. These compounds have been designed by combining a kynurenamine framework...

Two new families of pyrazoline and thiadiazoline heterocycles have been developed. Their inhibitory activities against two different isoforms of nitric oxide synthase (inducible and neuronal NOS) are reported. The novel derivatives were synthesized combining the arylthiadiazoline or arylpyrazoline skeleton and a carboxamide or carbothioamide moiety...

Nowadays, the expansion of new technologies in developed countries requires their inclusion in the higher educational systems, focused on the development of new skills to promote a continuous and independent learning process for the students. Internet technologies have reached a wide social diffusion, mainly among young people, and therefore the us...
Article
The synthesis of different compounds with a quinazolinone, quinazolinthione, or quinazolinimine skeleton and their in vitro biological evaluation as inhibitors of inducible and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (iNOS and nNOS) isoforms are described. These derivatives were obtained from substituted 2-aminobenzylamines, using diverse cyclization proced...
Article
Herein we describe the synthesis of a new family of kynurenamine derivatives with a urea or thiourea moiety, together with their in vitro biological evaluation as inhibitors of both neuronal and inducible nitric oxide synthases (nNOS and iNOS, respectively), enzymes responsible for the biogenesis of NO. These compounds were synthesized from a 5-sub...
Article
In a preliminary article, we reported a series of 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole derivatives as neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) inhibitors. Here we present the data about the inhibition of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) of these compounds. In general, we can confirm that these pyrazoles are nNOS selective inhibitors. In addition, taking thes...
Article
The 1H and 13C NMR resonances of twenty-seven 2,2-dimethyl-5-(2-nitrophenyl-5-substituted)-2,3-dihydro-1,3,4-thiadiazoles, and twenty-seven 3-acyl-5-(2-amino-5-substituted)-2,2-dimethyl-2,3-dihydro-1,3,4-thiadiazoles were assigned completely using the concerted application of one-dimensional and two-dimensional experiments (DEPT, HMQC and HMBC). NO...

Nitric oxide (NO), which is produced by oxidation of L-arginine to L-citrulline in a process catalyzed by different isoforms of nitric oxide synthase (NOS), exhibits diverse roles in several physiological processes, including neurotransmission, blood pressure regulation and immunological defense mechanisms. On the other hand, an overproduction of N...

Full-text available
The synthesis of new compounds with a 1,3,4-thiadiazole structure, and their in vitro biological evaluation as inhibitors of both neuronal and inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase (nNOS and iNOS) is described. These compounds have been designed by an isosteric modification of a series of 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole derivatives, previously described as the n...
Article
The (13)  C NMR resonances of 19 1-acyl-3-(2-nitro-5-substitutedphenyl)-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazoles, and 19 1-acyl-3-(2-amino-5-substituted)-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazoles, were completely assigned using the concerted application of one- and two-dimensional NMR experiments (DEPT, gs-HSQC and gs-HMBC).

Melatonin prevents mitochondrial failure in models of sepsis through its ability to inhibit the expression and activity of both cytosolic (iNOS) and mitochondrial (i-mtNOS) inducible nitric oxide synthases. Because Parkinson's disease (PD), like sepsis, is associated with iNOS induction, we assessed the existence of changes in iNOS/i-mtNOS and thei...
Article
The 1H and 13C NMR resonances of 22 5-(5-substituted-2-nitrophenyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamides, 22 5-(5-substituted-2-aminophenyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamides, and 9 5-phenyl-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamides were assigned completely using the concerted application of one- and two-dimensional experiments (DEPT, gs-HMQC and gs-HMBC). NOE studies and conformati...
Article
Full-text available
We have previously described a series of 3-phenyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole derivatives as moderately potent nNOS inhibitors. As a follow up of these studies, several new 5-phenyl-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxamide derivatives have been synthesized, and their biological evaluation as in vitro inhibitors of both neural and inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase (nNOS...
Article
The (1)H and (13)C NMR resonances of 22 1-alkyl-pyrazole and 25 1-alkyl-pyrazoline derivatives were assigned completely using the concerted application of one- and two-dimensional experiments (DEPT, gs-HMQC and gs-HMBC). Nuclear Overhauser enhancement (NOE) effects, conformational analysis and X-ray crystallography confirm the preferred conformatio...
Article
We have previously described a series of 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole as moderately potent nNOS inhibitors. As a follow up of these studies, we report here the preparation and the preliminary evaluation of a series of 1-alkyl-3-benzoyl-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole and 1-alkyl-3-benzoyl-1H-pyrazole as potential inhibitors of both neuronal and inducible nitric...

We assessed the effects of melatonin, N(1)-acetyl-N (2)-formyl-5-methoxykynuramine (AFMK) and N(1)-acetyl-5-methoxykynuramine (AMK) on neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) activity in vitro and in rat striatum in vivo. Melatonin and AMK (10(-11)-10(-3) m), but not AFMK, inhibited nNOS activity in vitro in a dose-response manner. The IC(50) value f...
Article
In this letter we describe the unexpected aromatization that takes place during the N-alkylation reaction performed on several 3-(2-nitrobenzoyl)-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole-5-carboxylic acid methyl esters, giving rise to a mixture of 1-alkyl-3-(2-nitrobenzoyl)-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole-5-carboxylic acid methyl esters and 1-alkyl-3-(2-nitrobenzoyl)-1H-py...

To find new compounds with potential neuroprotective activity, we have designed, synthesized, and characterized a series of neural nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) inhibitors with a kynurenamine structure. Among them, N-[3-(2-amino-5-methoxyphenyl)-3-oxopropyl]acetamide is the main melatonin metabolite in the brain and shows the highest activity in the...

This paper describes the unequivocal structural elucidation of a new kind of Delta2-pyrazoline derivatives carried out by means of monodimensional 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopies, bidimensional ones such as HMBC and HMQC experiments, and NOEDIFF effects. Conformational analysis of this molecule agrees very well with the experimentally NOEDIFF effects...

Compounds 11r [1-cyclopropanecarbonyl-3-(2-amino-5-chlorophenyl)-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazole] and 11e [1-cyclopropanecarbonyl-3-(2-amino-5-methoxyphenyl)- 4,5-dihydro-1H-pyra...
Article
A series of new Δ2-pyrazoline derivatives has been synthesized by means of a 1,3-dipolar-cycloaddition reaction. Ethyl 3-(5-methoxy-2-nitrobenzoyl)-Δ2-pyrazoline-5-carboxylate (5a) has been designed for the formation of the benzoylpyrazoline system present in these derivatives. Two synthetic routes have been utilized changing the starting products...
