Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitory and Anticonvulsant Activities of Some Substituted Isatin Semicarbazones

Ashok Kumar [56] | S. B. Singh [4] | Ismail M. Awheda [3]


Abstract: Substituted isatin-semicarbazones were synthesized by condensation reaction of appropriate N-substituted-5- (un) substituted isatin with corresponding phenyl semicarbazide and studied for monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitory and anticonvulsant activities. In vitro MAO-inhibiting activity was determined by radiometric enzyme assay method in rat liver tissue; and anticonvulsant activity was performed using standard maximal electroshock (MES) induced seizures method in mice. . All of these compounds exhibited MAO inhibiting and anticonvulsant activities; however; there appeared no parallel correlation ship between the activities of these compounds. Thus; these results indicate that MAO inhibiting property does not prove the biochemical basis for the anticonvulsant activity of these compounds. Acute toxicity studies indicate that the compounds have a wide margin of safety.
