Three series of novel sulfonylurea podophyllotoxin derivatives were designed, synthesized, and evaluated for in vitro cytotoxicity against four tumor cell lines (A-549, DU-145, KB and KBvin). Compounds 14c (IC₅₀: 1.41-1.76 μM) and 14e (IC₅₀: 1.72-2.01 μM) showed superior cytotoxic activity compared with etoposide (IC₅₀: 2.03 to >20 μM), a clinically(More)
Continuing our search for natural product-based compounds for the control of Brontispa longissima Larvae, 31 camptothecin analogs were first tested for their insecticidal activity against the fifth-instar larvae of B. longissima in vivo. Among them, compounds 6–8, 11, 26, 28, and 29 showed more promising and pronounced insecticidal activity than(More)
In our continuing search for camptothecin (CPT)-derived antitumor drugs, novel structurally diverse PEG-based 20(S)-CPT sulfonylamidine derivatives were designed, synthesized via a Cu-multicomponent reaction (MCR), and evaluated for cytotoxicity against four human tumor cell lines (A-549, MDA-MB-231, KB, and KBvin). All of the derivatives showed promising(More)
A series of novel spin-labeled 4β-[(4-substituted)-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl]podophyllotoxin derivatives (17a–h) were firstly designed and synthesized with significant regioselectivity by employing Cu(I) catalyzed click approach, and evaluated for cytotoxicity against four human tumor cell lines (A-549, DU145, KB, and KBvin). Among them, compound 17h displayed the(More)
Chemotherapy is a general treatment option for various cancers, including lung cancer. In order to find compounds with superior bioactivity and less toxicity against lung cancer, novel spin-labeled 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) derivatives (3a–f) were synthesized and evaluated against four human tumor cell lines (A-549, DU-145, KB, and KBvin). Two promising(More)
Three novel series of N3-substituted imidacloprid derivatives were designed and synthesized, and their structures were identified on the basis of satisfactory analytical and spectral ((1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, MS, elemental analysis, and X-ray) data. Preliminary bioassays indicated that all of the derivatives exhibited significant insecticidal activities against(More)
Two novel series of sulfonylamidine-derived neonicotinoid analogues were designed and synthesized via a Cu-catalyzed one pot reaction. The structures of the target compounds were characterized by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, HR-MS and the single-crystal structure of 14k was further determined by X-ray diffraction crystallography. In preliminary bioassays, many of the(More)
In an ongoing investigation of 20-sulfonylamidine derivatives (9, YQL-9a) of camptothecin (1) as potential anticancer agents directly and selectively inhibiting topoisomerase (Topo) I, the sulfonylamidine pharmacophore was held constant, and a camptothecin derivatives with various substitution patterns were synthesized. The new compounds were evaluated for(More)
Spin-labeled podophyllotoxins have elicited widespread interest due to their far superior antitumor activity compared to podophyllotoxin. To extend our prior studies in this research area, we synthesized a new generation of spin-labeled podophyllotoxin analogs via isocyanide multicomponent reactions and evaluated their cytotoxicity against four human cancer(More)
A new fungus Cladosporium oxysporum GQ-3 producing extracellular xylanase was isolated from decaying agricultural waste and identified based on the morphology and comparison of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) rDNA gene sequence. C. oxysporum produced maximum xylanase activity of 55.92 U/mL with wheat bran as a substrate and NH4Cl as a nitrogen source.(More)
