Publisher and Date:(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2009)A new series of pyrazoline derivatives were prepared starting from a quinazolinone ring and evaluated for antidepressant anxiogenic and MAO-A and -B inhibitory activities by in vivo and in vitro tests respectively. Most of the synthesized compounds showed high activity against both the MAO-A (compounds 4a-4h 4j-4n and 5g-5l) and the MAO-B (compounds 4i and 5a-5f) isoforms. However none of the novel compounds showed antidepressant activity except for 4b. The reason for such biological properties ...
