Author(s): Shahnaz Perveen, Khalid Mohammed Khan, Muhammad Arif Lodhi, Muhammad Iqbal Choudhary, Atta-ur-Rahman, Wolfgang Voelter.

Abstract:

A number of urea derivatives were synthesized and screened for their urease and α-chymotrypsin inhibition effects, whereby one of the compounds, N-4-nitrophenyl-N’-4’-nitrophenylurea (3), showed strong urease inhibition (IC50 = 1.25μM). We found that the same compound is also an efficient α-chymotrypsin inhibitor having an IC50 value of 3.15μM.

Keywords: Urease, α-chymotrypsin, Urea derivatives
