The novel benzimidazol-2-yl-fur-5-yl-(1,2,3)-triazolyl dimeric series with aliphatic and aromatic central linkers was successfully prepared with the aim of assessing binding affinity to DNA/RNA and antitrypanosomal activity. UV-Visible spectroscopy, thermal denaturation showed interaction of heterocyclic bis-amidines with ctDNA. Circular dichroism studies indicated uniform orientation of heterocyclic bis-amidines along the chiral double helix axis, revealing minor groove binding as the dominant binding mode. The amidino fragment and 1,4-bis(oxymethylene)phenyl spacer were the main determinants of activity against Trypanosoma brucei. The bis-benzimidazole imidazoline 15c, which had antitrypanosomal potency in the submicromolar range and DNA interacting properties, emerged as a candidate for further structural optimization to obtain more effective agents to combat trypanosome infections.

A cinnamamido ADENOSINE found in STREPTOMYCES alboniger. It inhibits protein synthesis by binding to RNA. It is an antineoplastic and antitrypanosomal agent and is used in research as an inhibitor of protein synthesis.
A bacteriostatic antibiotic macrolide produced by Streptomyces erythreus. Erythromycin A is considered its major active component. In sensitive organisms, it inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 50S ribosomal subunits. This binding process inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with translocation of amino acids during translation and assembly of proteins.
A class of drugs designed to prevent leukotriene synthesis or activity by blocking binding at the receptor level.
A macrolide antibiotic, produced by Streptomyces erythreus. This compound is an ester of erythromycin base and succinic acid. It acts primarily as a bacteriostatic agent. In sensitive organisms, it inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 50S ribosomal subunits. This binding process inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with translocation of amino acids during translation and assembly of proteins.
A macrolide antibiotic, produced by Streptomyces erythreus. It is the lauryl sulfate salt of the propionic ester of erythromycin. This erythromycin salt acts primarily as a bacteriostatic agent. In sensitive organisms, it inhibits protein synthesis by binding to 50S ribosomal subunits. This binding process inhibits peptidyl transferase activity and interferes with translocation of amino acids during translation and assembly of proteins.
