Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science Bv, 2003)Background: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) refers to the occurrence of episodes of complete or partial pharyngeal obstruction with oxyhemoglobin desaturation during sleep. These hypoxia/reoxygenation episodes may cause generation of reactive oxygen species. Reactive oxygen species are toxic to biomembranes and may lead to the peroxidation of lipids. We tested the hypothesis that obstructive sleep apnea is linked to increased oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation. In order to identify target ...
New pyrazoline bearing 4(3H)-quinazolinone inhibitors of monoamine oxidase: Synthesis biological evaluation and structural determinants of MAO-A and MAO-B selectivity Authors:Gökhan-Kelekçi, Nesrin; Koyunoğlu, Semra; Yabanoğlu-Çiftçi, Samiye; Yelekçi, Kemal; Özgen, Özen; Uçar, Gülberk; Erol, Kevser; Kendi, Engin; Yeşilada, Akguel
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 ...
Synthesis and molecular modeling of some novel hexahydroindazole derivatives as potent monoamine oxidase inhibitors Authors:Gökhan-Kelekçi, Nesrin; Şimşek, O. Özgün; Ercan, Ayşe; Yelekçi, Kemal; Şahin, Z. Sibel; Işık, Şamil; Uçar, Gülberk; Bilgin, Abdullah Altan
Publisher and Date:(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2009)A novel series of 2-thiocarbamoyl-234567-hexahydro-1H-indazole and 2-substituted thiocarbamoyl-33a 4567-hexahydro-2H-indazoles derivatives were synthesized and investigated for the ability to inhibit the activity of the A and B isoforms of monoamine oxidase (MAO). The target molecules were identified on the basis of satisfactory analytical and spectra data (IR H-1 NMR C-13 NMR D-2 NMR DEPT EI-MASS techniques and elemental analysis). Synthesized compounds showed high activity against both the MAO-A ...
