- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: New series histone deacetylase inhibitors comprising a hydroxamic acid or 2-aminobenzamide group as a zinc-chelating function were synthesized and evaluated for antiproliferative activities against a panel of human cancer cells. The 2-aminobenzamide series inhibitors generally had the potency in cell growth inhibitions comparable to that of MS-275. Among them, the compound having a (3,4-difluorobenzyl)(2-hydroxyethyl)amino group at one end and a 2-aminobenzamide group at the other of molecule showed the most promising profile as an anticancer drug candidate, since it had a comparatively low toxicity as did MS-275 against a normal fibroblast cell CCD-1059SK. Additionally, the derivative exhibited a high recovery in human plasma stability test.
- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Two compounds were synthesized which have a structural component other than those of our new series histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors to determine the structure-activity relationship. It was also examined whether the inhibitory effects on cancer cell proliferation by HDAC inhibitors involve p21/WAF1 induction and G(1) or G(2)/M arrest in p53-mutated MG63 human osteosarcoma cells as do other HDAC inhibitors. It was demonstrated that inhibitors with the 2-naphthylcarbonyl group and hydroxamic acid at both termimal sides as well as the phenylene component at the center of molecule markedly induce the p21/WAF1 protein by stimulating p21/WAF1 gene promoter activity. Furthermore, cell cycle analysis revealed that these compounds arrest MG63 cells in the G(2)/M phase.
