Design, synthesis, quantum chemical studies and biological activity evaluation of pyrazole-benzimidazole derivatives as potent Aurora A/B kinase inhibitors.
Summary of "Design, synthesis, quantum chemical studies and biological activity evaluation of pyrazole-benzimidazole derivatives as potent Aurora A/B kinase inhibitors."
Novel pyrazole-benzimidazole derivatives have been designed and synthesized. The entire target compounds were determined against cancer cell lines U937, K562, A549, LoVo and HT29 and were screened for Aurora A/B kinase inhibitory activity in vitro. The compounds 7a, 7b, 7i, 7k and 7l demonstrated significant cancer cell lines and Aurora A/B kinase inhibitory activities. Molecular modeling studies suggested the derivatives have bound in the active site of Aurora A kinase through the formation of four hydrogen bonds. Quantum chemical studies were carried out on these compounds to understand the structural features essential for activity. The cellular activity of 7k was also tested by immunofluorescence.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Studies determining the effectiveness or value of processes, personnel, and equipment, or the material on conducting such studies. For drugs and devices, CLINICAL TRIALS AS TOPIC; DRUG EVALUATION; and DRUG EVALUATION, PRECLINICAL are available.
A field of biological research combining engineering in the formulation, design, and building (synthesis) of novel biological structures, functions, and systems.
Nanometer sized fragments (the dots) of semiconductor crystalline material which emit PHOTONS. The wavelength is based on the quantum confinement size of the dot. They are brighter and more persistent than organic chemical INDICATORS. They can be embedded in MICROBEADS for high throughput ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY.
Studies designed to assess the efficacy of programs. They may include the evaluation of cost-effectiveness, the extent to which objectives are met, or impact.
Works consisting of studies determining the effectiveness or utility of processes, personnel, and equipment.
