Abstract

The synthesis of a novel series of aminostyrylbenzofuran derivatives 1a-w and their inhibitory activities for Abeta fibril formation were described. All the synthesized compounds were evaluated by thioflavin T (ThT) assay and displayed potent inhibitory activities for Abeta fibril formation. Among them, compounds 1i and 1q exhibited excellent inhibitory activities (IC(50)=0.07 and 0.08 microM, respectively) than those of Curcumin (IC(50)=0.80 microM) and IMSB (IC(50)=8.00 microM) as reference compounds. Both compounds were selected as promising candidates for further biological evaluation.
