Derivatives of new ring systems 11H-pyrido[3',2':4,5]pyrrolo[3,2-c]cinnoline and pyrido[3',2':4,5]pyrrolo[1,2-c][1,2,3]benzotriazine were prepared from the key intermediates 2-(1H-pyrrolo[2,3-b]pyridin-2-yl)anilines in excellent yields (94-99%) and screened by the National Cancer Institute (NCI, Bethesda, USA), on about 60 human tumor cell lines derived from nine cancer cell types. Tested compounds exhibited antiproliferative activity against all the human cell lines showing comparable MG_MID range 0.74-1.15 µM. A particular efficacy was observed against the leukemia sub-panel (GI50 range 0.73-0.0090 µM). Flow cytometric analysis of cell cycle demonstrated an increase of percentage of cells in G2/M phase. They cause apoptosis of the cells, mitochondrial depolarization, generation of reactive oxygen species, and activation of caspase-3, caspase-8 and caspase-9. Moreover, they acted as a topoisomerase I inhibitors.
