Marine Drugs, Vol. 17, Pages 53: Fragment-Based Structural Optimization of a Natural Product Itampolin A as a p38? Inhibitor for Lung Cancer (Marine Drugs)
 




Marine animals and plants provide abundant secondary metabolites with antitumor activity. Itampolin A is a brominated natural tyrosine secondary metabolite that is isolated from the sponge Iotrochota purpurea. Recently, we have achieved the first total synthesis of this brominated tyrosine secondary metabolite, which was found to be a potent p38α inhibitor exhibiting anticancer effects. A fragment-based drug design (FBDD) was carried out to optimize itampolin A. Forty-five brominated tyrosine derivatives were synthesized with interesting biological activities. Then, a QSAR study was carried out to explore the structural determinants responsible for the activity of brominated tyrosine skeleton p38α inhibitors. The lead compound was optimized by a FBDD method, then three series of brominated tyrosine derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their inhibitory activities against p38α and tumor cells. Compound 6o (IC50 = 0.66 μM) exhibited significant antitumor activity against non-small cell lung A549 cells (A549). This also demonstrated the feasibility of the FBDD method of structural optimization.
