A series of new N1-(flavon-7-yl)amidrazones incorporating N-piperazines and related congeners were synthesized by reacting the hydrazonoyl chloride derived from 7-aminoflavone and 7-amino-2-methylchromen-4-one with the appropriate piperazine. The chemical structures of the newly prepared compounds were confirmed by elemental analyses, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, and ESI-HRMS spectral data. The antitumor activity of these compounds was evaluated on breast cancer (MCF-7 and T47D) and Leukemic (K562) cell lines by a cell viability assay utilizing the tetrazolium dye 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT). Although with varying degrees, a significant growth inhibitory and cytotoxic effect was observed on all three cancer cell lines. Among the compounds tested compounds, 5a, 15a, and 18b, were the most active against T47D cell line with IC(50) values of 1.42, 1.92, and 2.92 μM, respectively. By using other cancer cell lines and with further characterization of their biological mechanism of action, these compounds could prove to be useful candidates as anticancer drugs.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
