ItemSynthesis and pharmacological evaluation of pyrazolo[4,3-c]cinnoline derivatives as potential anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agents( 2012-11-01) Tonk, Rajiv Kumar ; Bawa, Sandhya ; Chawla, Gita ; Deora, Girdhar Singh ; Kumar, Suresh ; Rathore, Vandana ; Mulakayala, Naveen ; Rajaram, Azad ; Kalle, Arunasree M. ; Afzal, ObaidA series of pyrazolo[4,3-c]cinnoline derivatives was synthesized, characterized and evaluated for anti-inflammatory and antibacterial activity. Test compounds that exhibited good anti-inflammatory activity were further screened for their ulcerogenic and lipid peroxidation activity. Compounds 4d and 4l showed promising anti-inflammatory activity with reduced ulcerogenic and lipid peroxidation activity when compared to naproxen. Docking results of these two compounds with COX-2 (PDB ID: 1CX2) also exhibited a strong binding profile. Among the test derivatives, compound 4i displayed significant antibacterial property against gram-negative (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus) bacteria. However, compound 4b emerged as the best dual anti-inflammatory-antibacterial agent in the present study. © 2012 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
