Hydrazides as potential HDAC inhibitors: Structure-activity relationships and biological implications
Curr Top Med Chem. 2023 Apr 5. doi: 10.2174/1568026623666230405124207. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTEpigenetic modulations by HDACs are associated with multiple disease conditions. In this context, HDACs play vital roles in the progression of diseases including several cancers, neurodegenerative diseases, inflammatory diseases, and metabolic disorders. Though several HDAC inhibitors have been established as drug candidates, their usage has been restricted because of broad-spectrum inhibition, highly toxic character, and off-target adverse effects. Therefore, specific HDAC selectivity is essential to get rid of such advers...

Multicomponent Reactions Applied to Total Synthesis of Biologically Active Molecules: A Short Review
Curr Top Med Chem. 2023 Apr 3. doi: 10.2174/1568026623666230403102437. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTMulticomponent reactions (MCRs) are processes in which three or more starting materials are combined in the same reaction vessel, forming an adduct that contains all or most of the atoms of the starting materials. MCRs are one-pot processes that provide attractive advantages for the total synthesis of target molecules. These reactions allow rapid access to structurally complex adducts from particularly simple starting materials. Moreover, MCRs are generally intrinsically associated with principles of green syntheses, such a...

Epigenetics mechanism and therapeutic potential of approved epi-drugs in pulmonary hypertension disease
Curr Top Med Chem. 2023 Apr 3. doi: 10.2174/1568026623666230403090650. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTEpigenetics is defined as a heritable change occurring in gene expression and phenotype without altering the underlying primary DNA sequence itself. Epigenetic variation consists of DNA methylation repatterning, posttranslational modification of histone proteins, and non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). Epigenetic modifications are deeply involved in tumorigenesis and tumor development. Epigenetic abnormalities can be therapeutically reversed, and three families of epigenetic marks, including "readers", "writers" and "erasers", could ...

Plants of the genus Mahonia as a Potential Traditional Chinese Medicine for the Prevention and Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease
Curr Top Med Chem. 2023 Mar 30. doi: 10.2174/1568026623666230330105251. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAlzheimer's disease (AD), a prevalent multiple neurodegenerative disease, has gained attention, particularly in the aging population. However, presently available therapies merely focus on alleviating the symptoms of AD and fail to slow disease progression significantly. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been used to ameliorate symptoms or interfere with the pathogenesis of aging-associated diseases for many years based on disease-modifying in multiple pathological roles with multi-targets, multi-systems and multi-asp...

Coumarin as a Privileged and Medicinally important Scaffold in the Treatment of Tuberculosis
Curr Top Med Chem. 2023 Mar 30. doi: 10.2174/1568026623666230330084058. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCoumarin and its derivatives, which are abundant in nature, have a significant role in medicinal chemistry due to their ability to bind with different targets or receptors. In addition, these possess a wide range of biological activity. Thus coumarin-based scaffold has inspired even further research into coumarin and its substituted derivatives, allowing for the creation of a huge variety of structurally different substituted products. In recent, these were reported to have potent antitubercular activity. Tuberculosis (TB)...
