    ABSTRACT: A number of 6-aryl-11-iminoindeno[1,2-c]quinoline derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their antiproliferative activities. Among them, (E)-6-{4-[3-(dimethylamino)propoxy]phenyl}-2-fluoro-9-hydroxy-11H-indeno[1,2-c]quinolin-11-one O-3-(dimethylamino)propyl oxime (23a) was the most active, exhibited GI(50) values of 0.64, 0.39, 0.55, 0.67, and 0.65μM against the growth of Hep G2, Hep 3B, A549, H1299, and MDA-MB-231, respectively. Compound 23a inhibited the growth of hepatoma cell lines in a dose- and time-dependent manner. The proportion of cells was decreased in the G1 and accumulated in G2/M phase after 12h treatment of 23a, while the hypodiploid (sub-G0/G1 phase) cells increased. Further investigations have shown that 23a induced cell cycle arrest at G2/M phase and induce apoptosis via activation of p53, Bax, and caspase-8 which consequently cause cell death.

    ABSTRACT: A number of 2,3-diarylquinoline derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for antiproliferative activities against the growth of six cancer cell lines including human hepatocellular carcinoma (Hep G2 and Hep 3B), non-small cell lung cancer (A549 and H1299), and breast cancer (MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231) cell lines. The preliminary results indicated that 6-fluoro-2,3-bis{4-[2-(piperidin-1-yl)ethoxy]phenyl}quinoline (16b) was one of the most active compounds against the growth of Hep 3B, H1299, and MDA-MB-231 with a GI(50) value of 0.71, 1.46, and 0.72 μM respectively which was more active than tamoxifen. Further investigations have shown that 16b induced cell cycle arrest at G2/M phase followed by DNA fragmentation via an increase in the protein expression of Bad, Bax and decrease in Bcl-2, and PARP which consequently cause cell death.

    ABSTRACT: A number of 6-arylindeno[1,2-c]quinoline derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their antiproliferative activities against the growth of five cancer cell lines including human hepatocelluar carcinoma (Hep G2, Hep 3B and Hep2.2.1), non-small cell lung cancer (A549 and H1299), and normal diploid embryonic lung cell line (MRC-5). The preliminary results indicated that 9-(3-(dimethylamino)propoxy)-6-(4-(3-(dimethylamino)propoxy)phenyl)-2-fluoro-11H-indeno[1,2-c]quinolin-11-one (14c) was the most potent with GI(50) values of 0.61, 0.67, 0.59, and 0.72 microM against the growth of Hep G2, Hep 3B, Hep 2.2.1, and H1299 cells, respectively. Results have also shown that 2,9-bis(3-(dimethylamino)propoxy)-6-(4-(3-(dimethylamino)propoxy)phenyl)-11H-indeno[1,2-c]quinolin-11-one (17), which exhibited GI(50) of 0.60 and 0.68 microM against the growth of Hep G2 and A549, respectively, was more active than the positive topotecan and irinotecan. Compound 17 was less toxic than topotecan against the growth of normal cell (MRC-5) and therefore, was selected for further evaluation. Results indicated that compound 17 induce cell cycle arrest in G2/M phase, DNA fragmentation, and disrupt the microtubule network in A549 cells. The apoptotic induction may through the cleavage of PARP.
