Synthesis and cytotoxicity of novel simplified eleutherobin analogs as potential antitumor agents

Abstract

Mixed simplified structures containing the paclitaxel and eleutherobin pharmacophore moieties were analyzed using molecular docking simulation (software package SYBYL) and synthesized based on adamantane and 8-oxabicyclo[3.2.1]octane scaffolds. The cytotoxic activity of new compounds against three cancer cell lines revealed and the crucial role of substituents stereochemistry for compounds biological activity was discussed. Found examples of compounds with low micromolar cytotoxicity caused cell rounding indicative of interaction of compounds with microtubules. The compound influence on sea urchin embryogenesis associated with microtubule dynamics was also determined.
