Antitumor studies: Design, synthesis, antitumor activity and molecular docking study of novel 2-deoxo-2-substituted-5-deazaalloxazines Conference Paper uri icon


  • Abstract Cancer is the major threat to the public health worldwide, thereby we have a considerable interest to get potential antitumor agents via computational design, synthesis, functional elucidation, and biological evaluation of different deazaalloxazine analogs. Many of these compounds revealed higher selectivities against different tumor cell lines. In the study the structure activity relationships (SAR) of the proposed derivatives was investigated, by applying structure based drug design (SBDD) using most advanced molecular modeling tool programs, namely: AutoDock 4.2 and Accelrys Discovery studio 2.0. These computational approaches aim to increase the speed and efficiency in the drug discovery process. The reasonable drug candidates were subjected to the chemical synthesis and biological in vitro test against different tumor cell lines. The docking study of the synthesized and the rationally designed derivatives was carried out using PTKs as target enzymes which was early reported as a proposed pathway for inhibition of cancer. The main outcome of this study is the synthesis of novel 2-methylthio, 2-(substituted alkyl amino), 2-(heterocyclic substituted), 2-amino, 2,4-dioxo and 2-deoxo-5-deazaalloxazine derivatives. Their antitumor activities against human T-cell acute lymphoblastoid leukemia cell line (CCRF-HSB-2), human oral epidermoid carcinoma cell line (KB), human breast cancer cell line (MCF-7) and human cervical cancer cell line (Hela) have been investigated in vitro. Many compounds showed promising antitumor activities. Furthermore, AutoDock study has been done by binding of the 5-deazaalloxazine analogs into c-kit PTK (PDB code: 1t46), where a good correlation between their IC50 and AutoDock binding free energy was exhibited.
