Pyrano[3,2-a]carbazole alkaloids as effective agents against ischemic stroke in vitro and in vivo

Pyrano[3,2-a]carbazole alkaloids as effective agents against ischemic stroke in vitro and in vivo A series of pyrano[3,2-a]carbazole alkaloids were designed and synthesized as analogues of Claulansine F (Clau F, 10a) isolated from Clausena lansium. Some of compounds showed strong neuroprotective effects and were promising agents against ischemic stroke. Among these compounds, 7c was the most active in inhibiting the programmed death of PC12 cells and primary cortical neurons. This compound induced neuroprotection following ischemic reperfusion and decreased neurological deficit scores in treated animals. Furthermore, 7c could penetrate the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in rats, and its exposure in the brain was 4.3-fold higher than that in plasma. More importantly, compared to edaravone, 7c exhibited stronger free radical scavenging activity. Our findings suggest that 7c may be promising for further evaluation as an intervention for ischemic stroke. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry Elsevier

Abstract

A series of pyrano[3,2-a]carbazole alkaloids were designed and synthesized as analogues of Claulansine F (Clau F, 10a) isolated from Clausena lansium. Some of compounds showed strong neuroprotective effects and were promising agents against ischemic stroke. Among these compounds, 7c was the most active in inhibiting the programmed death of PC12 cells and primary cortical neurons. This compound induced neuroprotection following ischemic reperfusion and decreased neurological deficit scores in treated animals. Furthermore, 7c could penetrate the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in rats, and its exposure in the brain was 4.3-fold higher than that in plasma. More importantly, compared to edaravone, 7c exhibited stronger free radical scavenging activity. Our findings suggest that 7c may be promising for further evaluation as an intervention for ischemic stroke.
