5-benzyloxy-2-thiocyanatomethyl-4-pyranone, a novel heterocyclic compound: synthesis, structure determination and effects on neoplastic cell growth.

Abstract

The present study was undertaken to prepare a novel 4-pyranone compound 5-benzylaxy-2-thiocyanatomethyl-4-pyranone as well as to investigate its effects on neoplastic cell growth. Three cell lines (murine leukemia L1210, human leukemia K562 and rat pituitary GH4C1 cells) were used in our experiments. The cell growth, DNA, RNA, protein synthesis, and cytoplasmatic protein phosphorylation after the treatment of GH4C1 cells with 5-benzyloxy-2-thiocyanatomethyl-4-pyranone were investigated. We found that the above new 4-pyranone derivative at 2.6 microM significantly (p < 0.05) inhibits neoplastic cell growth, and inhibits (p < 0.05) DNA synthesis.
