Antifungal and cytotoxic activities of some N-substituted aniline derivatives bearing a hetaryl fragment.


PMID 17981473

Abstract

Diverse N-substituted anilines bearing hetaryl fragments were easily prepared from corresponding aldimines derived from commercially available aromatic aldehydes and anilines. 2-Furyl substituted anilines showed very good antifungal activities against dermatophytes, particularly against Trichophyton rubrum (MIC=3.12-6.25microg/mL). In addition, all active compounds, 45-47, 73, and 74, were tested for cytotoxic activities against breast (MCF-7), lung (H-460), and central nervous system (SF-268) human cancer cell lines with the NCI-anticancer-drug screen. The activity of amines described in this paper, along with the low toxicity of most of them, shows promise for the future development of non-toxic new antimycotic agents.
