A series of 33 quinoline derivatives have been synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antibacterial activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H(37)Rv using the Alamar Blue susceptibility test and the activity expressed as the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) in microg/mL. Compounds 5e and 5f exhibited a significant activity at 6.25 and 3.12 microg/mL, respectively, when compared with first line drugs such as ethambutol and could be a good starting point to develop new lead compounds in the fight against multi-drug resistant tuberculosis.

    ABSTRACT: A new series of N-arylamino biquinoline derivatives 5a–x were synthesized under microwave irradiation technique in good yields compared with conventional method and screened for their antimicrobial activity. All the synthesized compounds have been established by elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectral data. In vitro antimicrobial activity was carried out against three Gram-positive bacteria (Bacillus subtilis, Clostridium tetani, Streptococcus pneumoniae), three Gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhi, Vibrio cholerae) and two fungal species (Aspergillus fumigatus, Candida albicans) using broth microdilution method. Of the compounds studied, compound 5u exhibited promising antimicrobial activity against Streptococcus pneumoniae and Salmonella typhi.

    ABSTRACT: A series of substituted N-(quinolin-4-yl)ethanediamine phenyl urea derivatives of biological interest were prepared by sequential quinoline synthesis, chlorination, and substitution reaction followed by reaction of resulting amine with different aryl isocyanates. All synthesized compounds (1–13) were screened for their pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α and IL-6) and antimicrobial activity (antibacterial and antifungal). Biological activity evaluation study revealed that among all the compounds screened, compounds 4 and 6 were found to have promising anti-inflammatory activity (up to 78–71 % TNF-α and 96–90 % IL-6 inhibitory activity) at a higher concentration of 10 μM with reference to standard dexamethasone (72 % TNF-α and 86 % IL-6 inhibitory activities at 1 μM). Compounds 6, 8, 10, and 11 overall exhibited promising antimicrobial activity at MIC values ranging from 10 to 30 μg/mL against all the selected pathogenic bacteria and fungi.

    ABSTRACT: A series of quinoline derivatives were synthesized and their immunosuppressive activity and cytotoxicity were evaluated with a T-cell functional assay and MTT method, respectively. Most of 5,7-dimethoxyquinolin-4-yl ortho-substituted benzoate derivatives (18, 22, 24, 28, 31 and 37) showed a quite stronger inhibitory activity compared to other analogs. Among the synthesized compounds, 5,7-dimethoxyquinolin-4-yl 2,6-dichlorobenzoate (22) and 5,7-dimethoxyquinolin-4-yl 4-methylbenzenesulfonate (40) exhibited a potent inhibitory activity without significant cytotoxicity at 10 microM concentration. The preliminary mechanism of the active compounds 22 and 40 was further clarified based on the fluorescence activated cell sorter (FACS) assay, and the compounds exerted immunosuppressive activity via inhibiting the T cell activation in a dose dependent manner.
