Abstract We have designed 1,3-disubstituted-5-membered heteroaromatic ring system as a common core motif from known anti-hyperglycemic agents. Designed compounds were synthesized and screened for in vivo anti-hyperglycemic activity in sucrose loaded model (SLM), sucrose-challenged streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat model (STZ-S) as well as db/db mice model. Some of the synthesized compounds showed promising in vivo anti-hyperglycemic as well as moderate lipid lowering activity. Synthesized Compounds were screened in various in vitro models of type-2 diabeties such as DPP-4, PTP1B and PPARgamma to know the mechanism of their anti-hyperglycemic action. None of the synthesized compounds showed DPP-4 inhibitory as well as PPARgamma activity. These compounds have shown promising PTP-1B inhibitory activity there by revealing that compounds exhibit anti-diabetic activity by PTP1B pathway.
