Synthesis and investigation of new Hesperadin analogues antitumor effects on HeLa cells

Hesperadin is one of the indolinones that was designed against the ATP-binding site of Aurora kinase. This molecule inhibits Aurora B kinase by phosphorylation of histone H3. In this study, new derivatives of Hesperadin containing an amide group in their structures were synthesized through sequential Ugi/palladium-catalyzed approach and in vitro antitumor activity of new compounds were evaluated by cell proliferation assay. The results show that compounds 6f, 6i, 6l, and 6o were dose-dependently inhibited in different concentrations, and IC50 values were between 35 and 43 nM. It seems that lipophilic substitution on the indolinone core with the ability to form additional hydrogen bond might lead to increased stability of structure and activity of new Hesperadin analogues.
