Novel triazine analogues of 5-alkyl-2-alkylthio-6-[1-(2,6-difluorophenyl)alkyl]-3,4-dihydropyrimidin-4(3H)-ones (F(2)-DABOs), previously described by us as nonnucleoside HIV-1 reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs), were tested for their antiproliferative and cytodifferentiating activity on the A-375 human melanoma cell line. Most of the tested derivatives were effective in decreasing cell proliferation, facilitating morphological differentiation, and reprogramming gene expression. All these… CONTINUE READING
