Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A series of novel C21-alkynylaryl derivatives of pregnenolone were synthesized and screened for anticancer activity against a panel of seven human cancer cell lines (LNCaP, A549, MCF7, HeLa, A431, HepG2, HT29). The data revealed that these compounds can be potential antitumour agents against the specific cell models. Compound 6f bearing a 2-trifluoromethylphenyl group displayed improved cytotoxicity towards all cancer cell lines used. A431 cells were the most sensitive with derivatives 6e-6h bearing electron withdrawing substituents exhibiting high potency with IC50 values ranging between 2.18 and 0.54μM and drastic inhibition of the prosurvival PI3K-Akt/PKB pathway.
