Nitrocatechol derivatives of chalcone as inhibitors of monoamine oxidase and Catechol-O-Methyltransferase
(Bentham Science, 2018)
Introduction: The efficacy of L-dopa in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease depends on its metabolic conversion to dopamine in the brain, however extensive peripheral metabolism of L-dopa diminishes its availability for ...
Synthesis and evaluation of 2-substituted 4(3H)-quinazolinone thioether derivatives as monoamine oxidase inhibitors
In the present study, a series of fourteen 2-mercapto-4(3H)-quinazolinone derivatives was synthesised and evaluated as potential inhibitors of the human monoamine oxidase (MAO) enzymes. Quinazolinone is the oxidised form ...
Synthesis and in vitro evaluation of 2-heteroarylidene-1-tetralone derivatives as monoamine oxidase inhibitors
The present study investigates the human monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibition properties of a series of twelve 2-heteroarylidene-1-tetralone derivatives. Also included are related cyclohexylmethylidene, cyclopentylmethylidene ...
Methylene blue analogues with marginal monoamine oxidase inhibition retain antidepressant-like activity
Methylene blue (MB) possesses diverse medical applications. Among these, MB presents with antidepressant-like effects in animals and has shown promise in clinical trials for the treatment of mood disorders. As an antidepressant, ...
An investigation of the monoamine oxidase inhibition properties of pyrrolo[3,4‐f]indole‐5,7‐dione and indole‐5,6‐dicarbonitrile derivatives
In recent studies, we have shown that pyrrolo[3,4‐f]indole‐5,7‐dione and indole‐5,6‐dicarbonitrile derivatives act as good potency in vitro inhibitors of the monoamine oxidase (MAO) enzymes. To expand on these series and ...
