Design, synthesis, and evaluation of novel (E)‐N'‐(3‐allyl‐2‐hydroxy)benzylidene‐2‐(4‐oxoquinazolin‐3(4H)‐yl)acetohydrazides as antitumor agents
In our continuing search for novel small‐molecule anticancer agents, we designedand synthesized a series of novel (E)‐N'‐(3‐allyl‐2‐hydroxy)benzylidene‐2‐(4‐oxoquinazolin‐3(4H)‐yl)acetohydrazides (5), focusing on the modification of sub-stitution in the quinazolin‐4(3H)‐one moiety. The biological evaluation showed thatall 13 designed and synthesized compounds displayed significant cytotoxicity againstthree human cancer cell lines (SW620, colon cancer; PC‐3, prostate cancer; NCI‐H23, lung cancer). The most potent compound5ldisplayed cytotoxicity up to 213‐fold more potent than 5‐fluorouracil and 87‐fold more potent than PAC‐1, the firstprocaspase‐activating compound. Structure–activi...
