Yamakoshi, H.; Kanoh, N.; Kudo, C.; Sato, A.; Ueda, K.; Muroi, M.; Kon, S.; Satake, M.; Ohori, H.; Ishioka, C. ACS Med. Chem. Lett. 2010, 1, 273-276. DOI:?10.1021/ml1000454
Bis(arylmethylidene)acetone derivatives are an important class of curcumin analogues that exhibit various biological and pharmacological activities. We herein report that GO-Y086, a biotinylated bis(arylmethylidene)acetone, inhibits cancer cell growth. We also show that GO-Y086 specifically interacts with the nuclear protein KSRP/FUBP2 by covalent modification. GO-Y086 markedly suppresses the expression of the c-Myc protein, which plays an important role in cellular proliferation and whose expression is regulated by KSRP/FUBP2.
(2) “Structure–activity relationship of C5-curcuminoids and synthesis of their molecular probes thereof”
Yamakoshi, H.; Ohori, H.; Kudo, C.; Sato, A.; Kanoh, N.; Ishioka, C.; Shibata, H.; Iwabuchi, Y. Bioorg. Med. Chem. 2010, 18, 1083-1092. DOI:10.1016/j.bmc.2009.12.045
A series of novel analogues of 1,5-bis(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-penta-(1E,4E)-1,4-dien-3-one (C5-curcumin), which is a natural analogue of curcumin isolated from the rhizomes of Curcuma domestica Val. (Zingiberacea), were synthesized and evaluated for their cytotoxicities against human colon cancer cell line HCT-116 to conclude the SAR of C5-curcuminoids for further development of their use in cancer chemotherapy: (1) Bis(arylmethylidene)acetone serves as a promising skeleton for eliciting cytotoxicity. (2) The 3-oxo-1,4-pentadiene structure is essential for eliciting cytotoxicity. (3) As for the extent of the aromatic substituents, hexasubstituted compounds exhibit strong activities, in which 3,4,5-hexasubstitution results in the highest potency. (5) The symmetry between two aryl rings is not an essential requirement for bis(arylmethylidene)acetones to elicit cytotoxicity. (6) para-Positions allows the installation of additional functional groups for use as molecular probes. By taking advantage of the SAR diagram, we have elaborated several advanced derivatives having GI50 of single-digit micromolar potencies that will function as molecular probes to target and/or report key biomolecules interacting with curcumin and C5-curcumin.
