Graphical Abstracts Designing Anticancer Drugs Via the Achilles Heel: Ceramide, Allylic Ketones, and Mitochondria

Bioorg. Med. Chem. 11 (2003) 2123

Norman S. Radin Mental Health Research Institute, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA This review hypothesizes that ceramide, the apoptosis-inducing sphingolipid, acts by undergoing oxidation to an allylic ketone in tumor mitochondria. The graphic suggests that the reaction occurs in complex III, with ubiquinone as the oxidant. The presence of an allylic alcohol or allylic ketone group in a drug seems to make it a good antineoplastic agent.

Synthesis and Antimycobacterial Activity of New Quinoxaline-2carboxamide 1,4-di-N-Oxide Derivatives

Bioorg. Med. Chem. 11 (2003) 2149

Bele´n Zarranz, Andre´s Jaso, Ignacio Aldana* and Antonio Monge Unidad en Investigacio´n y Desarrollo de Medicamentos, Centro de Investigacio´n en Farmacobiologı´a Aplicada (CIFA), Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain As a continuation of our research and with the aim of obtaining new antituberculosis agents which can improve the current chemotherapeutic antituberculosis treatments, new series of quinoxaline-2-carboxamide 1,4-di-Noxide derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for in vitro antituberculosis activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain H37Rv, using the radiometric BACTEC 460-TB methodology. Active compounds were also screened by serial dilution to assess toxicity to a VERO cell line. The results indicate that some compounds exhibited a good antituberculosis activity and the arylcarboxamide analogues 3, 8 and 9 were the most active compounds (EC90/MIC 1). Also, the cytotoxic effects indicate that these compounds have a good Selectivity Index (SI).
