|Abstract: ||From a screening study of various potential inhibitors for cholinesterases (ChEs), compound (rac)-1 (4-((3-hydroxy-2-oxo-3-phenylindolin-1-yl) methyl) piperidin-1-ium chloride) showed an IC50 of 18 μM for butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE). Herein we present a toxicological and pharmacological evaluation of (rac)-1 to determine its potential for use as an alternative ChE inhibitor for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The strategy adopted included in vivo and ex vivo studies with mouse models, Molecular Modelling and Saturation Transfer Difference (STD) NMR studies.
Preliminary molecular docking studies were conducted with both (R) and (S)-1 with acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and BuChE, prior to advancing to the mouse model, and indeed favorable interactions were observed, with (R)-1 showing the best binding with AChE and (S)-1 with BuChE. STD-NMR studies were used to successfully validate these results. Toxicological studies were also conducted using the Artemia salina model, with donepezil as reference. It was found that in the in vivo mouse studies that (rac)-1 presented a slightly better inhibition of AChE (0.096 µmol.min−1.mg−1) than donepezil (0.112 µmol.min−1.mg−1) and the same level of inhibition for BuChE as donepezil (0.014 µmol.min−1.mg−1).|
