3,5-Diaryl pyrazolines analogs were synthesized and evaluated for their monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitory activity. The compounds were found reversible and selective towards MAO-A with selectivity index in the magnitude of 10(3)-10(5). The docking studies were carried out to gain further structural insights of the binding mode and possible interactions with the active site of MAO-A. Interestingly, the theoretical (K-i) values obtained by molecular docking studies were in congruence with their experimental (K-i) values. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
