Scaffold-hopping of bioactive flavonoids: Discovery of aryl-pyridopyrimidinones as potent anticancer agents that inhibit catalytic role of topoisomerase IIα.


A strategy of scaffold-hopping of bioactive natural products, flavones and isoflavones, leading to target-based discovery of potent anticancer agents has been reported for the first time. Scaffold-hopped flavones, 2-aryl-4H-pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-4-ones and the scaffold-hopped isoflavones, 3-aryl-pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-4-ones were synthesized via Pd… (More)
