Incorporation of Basic Side Chains into Cryptolepine Scaffold: Structure−Antimalarial Activity Relationships and Mechanistic Studies

The synthesis of cryptolepine derivatives containing basic side-chains at the C-11 position and their evaluations for antiplasmodial and cytotoxicity properties are reported. Propyl, butyl, and cycloalkyl diamine side chains significantly increased activity against chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium falciparum strains while reducing cytotoxicity Read more ›
