A series of novel carbazole-based mono-/bis-thiocarbohydrazone derivatives were synthesized. Their structures were characterized by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR spectra and elemental analysis. The inhibitory activities of the target compounds against Cdc25B/PTP1B were evaluated, and the relationship between structure and activity was discussed. The results showed that most of the target compounds had good inhibitory activity against Cdc25B and PTP1B. Among them, 1,5-bis[(9-pentyl-3-carbazolyl)methylene]thiocarbohydrazone (4d) had the highest inhibitory activity against Cdc25B with IC50=(0.23±0.02) μg/mL, and 1,5-bis[(9-ethyl-3-carbazolyl)methylene]thiocarbohydrazone (4a) had the highest inhibitory activity against PTP1B with IC50=(1.00±0.16) μg/mL. Molecular docking and density functional theory (DFT) calculations of the target compounds 4a and 4d were performed. Molecular docking results indicated that the target compounds 4d and 4a entered the active sites of Cdc25B and PTP1B enzymes, respectively, and thiocarbohydrazone and carbazole groups play the importent role of activity.

Key words: thiocarbohydrazone, carbazole, synthesis, Cdc25B and PTP1B inhibitor, molecular docking, DFT calculations
