Abstract: Tacripyrines (1-14) have been designed by combining an AChE inhibitor (tacrine) with a calcium antagonist such as nimodipine and are targeted to develop a multitarget therapeutic strategy to confront AD. Tacripyrines are selective and potent AChE inhibitors in the nanomolar range. The mixed type inhibition of hAChE activity of compound 11 (IC50 105 ( 15 nM) is associated to a 30.7 ( 8.6% inhibition of the proaggregating action of AChE on the A and a moderate inhibition of A self-aggregation (34.9 ( 5.4%). Molecular modeling indicates that binding of compound 11 to the AChE PAS mainly involves the (R)-11 enantiomer, which also agrees with the noncompetitive inhibition mechanism exhibited by p-methoxytacripyrine 11. Tacripyrines are neuroprotective agents, show moderate Ca2+ channel blocking effect, and cross the blood-brain barrier, emerging as lead candidates for treating AD.
