A new series of (E)-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl)methylene)indolin-2-one derivatives has been synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against a panel of selected human cancer cell lines of prostate (PC-3 and DU-145) and breast (BT-549, MDA-MB-231, MCF-7, 4T1), non-small lung (A549) and gastric (HGC) cancer cells along with normal breast(More)
A new class of C8-linked pyrrolo[2,1-c][1,4]benzodiazepine-chalcone conjugates have been prepared by employing a solid-phase synthetic protocol. In this strategy an intramolecular aza-Wittig reductive cyclization approach has been utilized. Interestingly, some of these molecules have shown enhanced DNA-binding affinity and promising anticancer activity on a(More)
New phenanthrylphenol-pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PP-PBD) conjugates have been synthesized and evaluated for their biological activity. One of the compounds 4a has been evaluated for its antiproliferative activity on 57 human tumour cell lines. The growth inhibition of 4a-c has been determined by MTT viability assay on MCF-7 cell line. Among them, 4c showed most(More)
A series of new (Z)-3-(3'-methoxy-4'-(2-amino-2-oxoethoxy)benzylidene)indolin-2-one derivatives has been synthesized and evaluated for their cytotoxic activity against selected human cancer cell lines of prostate (PC-3 and DU-145), breast (BT-549 and MDA-MB-231) and non-tumorigenic prostate epithelial cells (RWPE-1). Among the tested, one of the compounds(More)
1,2,3-Triazole based molecules are useful pharmacophores for several DNA-alkylating and cross-linking agents. A series of A/C8, C/C2 and A/C8-C/C2-linked 1,2,3-triazole-PBD conjugates have been synthesized by employing 'click' chemistry. These molecules have exhibited promising DNA-binding affinity and anticancer activity in selected human cancer cell lines.
Benzodiazepine based heterocycles can be prepared efficiently on solid-support by employing different approaches. In this review, an effort has been made to highlight academic and industrial examples of combinatorial synthesis for this type of heterocycles published in the last decade. Therefore, it describes synthetic strategies for the generation of(More)
A series of new DNA-interactive C3-tethered 1,2,3-triazolo-β-carboline derivatives have been synthesized via 'click' reaction and evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxicity as well as DNA binding affinity. Interestingly, these hybrids have displayed potent in vitro cytotoxicity in comparison to Harmine against the HT-29 (colon cancer) and HGC-27 (gastric(More)
A series of β-carboline hybrids bearing a substituted phenyl and a chalcone/(N-acetyl)-pyrazole moiety at the C1 and C3 positions, respectively, was designed, synthesized, and evaluated for anticancer activity. These new hybrid molecules showed significant cytotoxic activity, with IC50 values ranging from <2.0 μM to 80 μM, and the structure-activity(More)
An efficient one-pot iodination methodology for the synthesis of benzothiazolo-4β-anilino-podophyllotoxin (5a-h) and benzothiazolo-4β-anilino-4-O-demethylepipodophyllotoxin (6a-h) congeners has been successfully developed by using zirconium tetrachloride/sodium iodide. Interestingly, this protocol demonstrates enhancement of stereoselectivity apart from the(More)
A facile one-pot method for the synthesis of novel podophyllotoxin-thiourea congeners has been developed by using NH2SO3H/NaI system. Interestingly, 4β-azido podophyllotoxin reduction with concomitant aryl isothiocyanates coupling under mild reaction conditions has been achieved. These compounds have been investigated for their in vitro cytotoxicity against(More)
