Ring-substituted 11-oxo-11H-indeno[1,2-b]quinoline-6-carboxamides with similar patterns of cytotoxicity to the dual topo I/II inhibitor DACA.


PMID 10658584

Abstract

A series of ring-substituted analogues of the topoisomerase inhibitor 11-oxo-11H-indeno[1,2-b]quinoline-6-carboxamides was prepared and evaluated. The compounds were prepared by Pfitzinger reaction of the appropriate isatin-7-carboxylic acids and 1-indanones, followed by selective thermal decarboxylation of the resulting tetracyclic diacids, subsequent oxidation of the methylene group with alkaline permanganate under carefully controlled conditions, and 1,1'-carbonyldiimidazole-induced amidation. The compounds were evaluated in a panel of cell lines in culture. The largest increases in cytotoxicity (five to tenfold) were shown by 4-substituted analogues, with the 4-Cl derivative having an IC50 of 8 nM against the Lewis lung carcinoma.
