Cytotoxic 3,6-bis((imidazolidinone)imino)acridines: synthesis, DNA binding and molecular modeling.


:New acridine derivatives bearing two symmetrical imidazolidinone rings, 3,6-bis((1-alkyl-5-oxo-imidazolidin-2-yliden)imino)acridine hydrochlorides 6a-6e (alkyl=ethyl, n-propyl, n-butyl, n-pentyl, n-hexyl), have been prepared and their interactions with calf thymus DNA and selected cell lines were studied. The DNA-binding of 6a-6e to ctDNA was examined by UV-vis, fluorescence, and CD spectroscopy. The binding constants determined by UV-vis spectroscopy were found in the range 1.9×10(5)-7.1×10(5) M(-1). An electrophoretic separation proved that ligands 6a-6e inhibited topoisomerase I in 40 μM concentration although only those with longer alkyl chains were able to penetrate the membranes and efficiently suppress the cell proliferation. The highest activity in cytotoxic tests was found for 3,6-bis((1-n-hexyl-5-oxo-imidazolidin-2-yliden)imino)acridine hydrochloride (6e) with IC(50)=2.12 μM (HL 60) and 5.28 μM (L1210) after 72 h incubation. Molecular dynamics simulations and calculations of solvent-accessible surface areas (SASAs) were used to explore the intercalation mechanism. MD simulations favor stacking between adjacent C:G base pairs from the minor groove side. MD and SASAs calculations indicate that the decrease of K with alkyl extension is due to negative entropic change upon binding.
