Abstract:   (3050 Views)
Background: Hyperglycemia is a metabolic disorder that refers to an increase in blood sugar in diabetic patients. α-Glucosidase has been introduced as a membrane-bound enzyme, and it is the main enzyme for carbohydrate digestion in some parts of the intestine. Inhibition of α -glucosidase enzyme activity is a reliable approach to control post-prandial hyperglycemia condition.
Objectives: In this study, a series of Pyrazolo[1,2-b]phthalazine-5,10-dione derivatives 5a–t were synthesized via a multicomponent reaction and evaluated as new inhibitors for α-glucosidase.
Methods: The biological activity of the synthesized compounds was studied using a source of the α-glucosidase enzyme (EC3.2.1.20, Saccharomyces cerevisiae) at 20 U/mg concentration. 
Results: Four compounds showed higher α-glucosidase inhibitory activity in comparison to a standard, i.e., Acarbose. Compound 5q displays the most potent α-glucosidase inhibitory activity (IC50 = 155.4 ± 6.0 μM). 
Conclusion: In conclusion, some of the synthesized compounds, including heterocyclic core molecules, have shown remarkable activity that could be considered as subjects for the development of new, more efficient inhibitors of the α-glucosidase enzyme.
