Design, synthesis and structure-activity relationship studies of a novel focused library of 2,3,4-substituted oxazolidines with antiproliferative activity against cancer cell lines
In the present work we describe the synthesis and antiproliferative evaluation of a focused library of 30 novel oxazolidines designed by modification of N-substituent, by ring variation, by alkyl variation or by extension of the structure. It was noted that carbamate and N,O-aminal groups were essential for activity. In general, replacement of the phenyl ring with pyridinyl was not tolerated. However, the introduction of a second phenyl ring with an appropriate spacer at the 3- or 4-position of the first phenyl ring generally enhanced the cytotoxic profile. Among all the prepared compounds, 24 was the most potent compound found in this class, being active on four of five cancer cell lines and it was 5-fold and 10-fold more potent than the lead compounds against HL60 and JURKAT cells, respectively. In addition, it showed relevant activity against MCF-7 and HCT-116 cells, which were resistant to lead. Moreover, 24 showed little antiproliferative activity against VERO, indicating low toxicity to normal cells. Thus, this compound has the potential to be developed as an anticancer agent.
