Twenty-one coumarins were examined for their antiproliferative activity towards several cancer cell lines, namely lung carcinoma (A549), melanin pigment producing mouse melanoma (B16 melanoma 4A5), human T-cell leukemia (CCRF-HSB-2), and human gastric cancer, lymph node metastasized (TGBC11TKB). The structure-activity relationship established from the results revealed that the 6,7-dihydroxy moiety had an important role for their antiproliferative activity. Analysis of cell cycle distribution… 

Relationship Between the Structure of Alkylpsoralens and Their Antiproliferative Activity in HL60 Cells

Background/Aim: As part of our continuing investigation in coumarin derivatives as potential anticancer substances, a series of alkylpsoralens were synthesized, and their antiproliferative activity

Geranylated 4-Phenylcoumarins Exhibit Anticancer Effects against Human Prostate Cancer Cells through Caspase-Independent Mechanism

Geranylated 4-phenylcoumarins isolated from Mesua elegans showed ability to activate multiple death pathways involving autophagy, lysosomal and endoplasmic reticulum death proteins which could potentially be manipulated to develop anti-cancer therapy in apoptosis resistant cells.

Antimetastatic, antineoplastic, and toxic effects of 4-hydroxycoumarin in a preclinical mouse melanoma model

The data suggest that 4-HC may lead to the development of agents that could be used as adjuvants in the therapy of melanoma, and effectively reduces tumor growth and improves survival, even when it produce toxic effects.

Antiproliferative, cytotoxic and antitumour activity of coumarins isolated from Calophyllum brasiliense

The cytological study showed that coumarins from C. brasiliense reduce the survival of BMK cells by inducing apoptosis and, to a lesser degree, necrosis and they might increase the effectiveness of other treatments for cancer.
