Synthesis and cytotoxic activities of novel 4-methoxy-substituted and 5-methyl-substituted (3′S,4′S)-(−)-cis-khellactone derivatives that induce apoptosis via the intrinsic pathway

This study deals with the design and synthesis of a series of novel 4-methoxy-substituted and 5-methyl-substituted (3'S,4'S)-(-)-cis-khellactones. The newly synthesized compounds were characterized by 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), 13C-NMR, mass spectrometry, and elemental analysis. All the derivatives were subjected to in vitro cytotoxicity screening… CONTINUE READING
