Synthesis, molecular docking study, and evaluation of the antiproliferative action of a new group of propargylthio- and propargylselenoquinolines
This study describes the synthesis of a new group of halogenopropargylthio-, dipropargylthio-, and halogenopropargylseleno-quinoline derivatives. The ability of all of the synthesized compounds to inhibit the proliferation of the T-47D, MCF-7, MDA-MB-231, and SNB-19 cell lines was determined with the WST-1 assay. The normal fibroblast cell line (HFF-1) was used as a control. The cytotoxic properties of these new, modified propargylquinoline derivatives were comparable to those of cisplatin. The most active compounds, 4,7-dipropargylthiquinoline (8b) and 7-chloro-4-propargylselenoquinoline (5b), were docked into the binding site of human CYP1A1 and CYP1B1. Our data indicate that these derivatives may present promising chemotherapeutic agents, possibly targeting CYP1s pathway.
