Summary. 4-Subsituted esculetinederivatives were synthesized by condensation of pyrogalol A ethyl acetoacetate orethyl 4-chloroacetoacetate under Pechmanns reaction. 4-Hydroxymethylesculetin was synthesized by acetylation of 4-chloromethylesculetin with acetic anhydride in presence of potassium acetate and subsequent deacylation in ethanol. Aminomethylation of 4-methyl- and 4-hydroxymethyl esculetin derivatives was studied at various reaction conditions. A different 8-aminomethyl esculetine derivatives and 2H,8H-chromeno[8,7-e][1,3]oxazin-2-ones were synthesized with good or excellent yield.

Keywords: Pechmanns reaction, esculetine, Mannichbase.

Summary. For the first time at MP2/6-311++G(2df,pd)//B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) level of theory by a quantum-chemical methods was received a complete family of H-linked self associates of nucleotide bases m1Thym1Thy, which includes 10 different structures. An intermolecular hydrogen bonds that stabilize them was described; the main attention is paid to hydrogen bonds CH...N.

Keywords: thymine, self association, hydrogen bonds, quantum chemistry.

Summary. Fifteen imidazo[1,5-a]pyridine derivatives were synthesized and their testing in vitro on the ability to inhibit protein kinase CK2 was conducted. Two compounds with residual activity values of 40 and 60 % respectively were discovered. That indicates the advisability of further search of effective inhibitors of protein kinase CK2 in a series of derivatives of imidazo[1,5-a]pyridine.

Keywords: imidazo[1,5-a]pyridine, protein kinase CK2, inhibitor.

Summary. Protein kinase FGFR1 plays important roles in cell proliferation, angiogenesis, migration, and survival. Increased activity of FGFR1 is associated with several malignancies and disorders. FGFR1 has been proved to be attractive molecular target for therapeutic intervention in cancer, and it is high interest to design FGFR1 inhibitors with novel chemical scaffolds. We have developed receptor-based pharmacophore model of FGFR1 inhibitors and performed pharmacophore screening which allowed us to identify two novel classes of FGFR1 inhibitors the derivatives of 3-(1-benzyl-1H-indol-3-yl)-2-cyanoacrylic acid and N-[(phenylmethylidene)amino]thiourea and several hit compounds.

Keywords: protein kinase FGFR1, pharmacophore model, inhibitor.

Summary. Protein kinase 2 is ubiquitous and highly pleiotropic protein kinase, implicated in several human diseases. This paper presents an overview of the published data concerning the role of CK2 in oncogenesis and in progression of viral infections and neurodegenerative diseases. Also, we report chemical classes of CK2 inhibitors available in literature and analyze their efficiency in vitro and in vivo.

Keywords: protein kinase CK2, oncogenesis, viral infections, neurodegenerative diseases, inhibitor.

Summary. We have investigated inhibitory activity of imidazolone derivatives and their precursors toward protein
kinase CK2. As a result, we have found seven inhibitors with
50 values in the range from 8 to 30 .

Summary. The series of halo-substituted cumaranone-3 derivatives was synthesized using base induced cyclization of ortho-hydroxy-chloroacetophenones. Novel aurone derivatines were obtained by the condensation of halo-cumaranones-3 and aldehydes with the yields in a range of 15-90 %.

Keywords: aurones, cumaranones, protein kinase CK2, inhibitor.
