Synthesis, cytotoxicity and pro-apoptosis activity of isoquinoline quinones

Yu Zhao, Chao Xia, Hua Ni

Abstract

Mansouramycins are newly isolated cytotoxic isoquinoline quinones from marine organism. To find novel anticancer agents, eighteen isoquinoline quinones 7a7r as Mansouramycins analogs were designed and synthesized. Most of these compounds displayed moderate cytotoxicities against MCF-7, A549, HCT116, and HepG2 cancer cell lines at micromolar concentration. Compound 7a was found to has the ability of inducing HepG2 cells apoptosis by Hoechst33342 staining assay.
