Inhibitory activities against topoisomerase I and II by isoaurostatin derivatives and their structure-activity relationships.

Isoaurostatin A (IAS-A) isolated from Thermomonospora alba showed weak inhibition against topoisomerase (topo) I (IC(50)=307microM). To get more strong inhibition, derivatives of IAS-A were prepared and their structure-activity relationships against topo I and II were investigated. The addition of hydroxyl group on aromatic rings increased the activities, 3… CONTINUE READING
