Pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidine Derivatives as COX-2 Selective Inhibitors: Synthesis and Molecular Modelling Studies

COX-2 inhibitors • Docking • Pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidine • 4(3H)-Quinazolinone
The pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidine system shows a multitude of interesting pharmacological properties. Owing to the potential anti-inflammatory activity of 5-benzamido-pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4-one derivatives and considering the easy synthesis of this class of compounds, a set of new 5-benzamido-1H-pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4-ones has been prepared in 42-80% yields by reacting 5-aminopyrazole-4(N-benzoyl)carbohydrazide derivatives and the opportune triethylorthoesters. Compounds 8a, b, 10a-d, and 11a, b revealed a superior inhibitory profile against COX-2, when compared to that of reference standards NS398
