The application of click chemistry in the synthesis of agents with anticancer activity.

Ma N, Wang Y, Zhao BX, Ye WC, Jiang S - Drug Des Devel Ther (2015)

Bottom Line: The copper(I)-catalyzed 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition between alkynes and azides (click chemistry) to form 1,2,3-triazoles is the most popular reaction due to its reliability, specificity, and biocompatibility.This reaction has the potential to shorten procedures, and render more efficient lead identification and optimization procedures in medicinal chemistry, which is a powerful modular synthetic approach toward the assembly of new molecular entities and has been applied in anticancer drugs discovery increasingly.The present review focuses mainly on the applications of this reaction in the field of synthesis of agents with anticancer activity, which are divided into four groups: topoisomerase II inhibitors, histone deacetylase inhibitors, protein tyrosine kinase inhibitors, and antimicrotubule agents.

f25-dddt-9-1585: Chemical structures of antimicrotubule agents synthesized via click chemistry.

Mentions: Chalcones (chalcone 1, Figure 25) are open-chained molecules consisting of two aromatic rings linked by a three-carbon enone fragment, and some of them have the ability to inhibit tubulin polymerization. Mesenzani et al reported a small class of antitubulin agents using click chemistry in 2010. They replaced the olefinic portion of chalcones with metabolically stable and chemically inert heterocyclic rings. Compound 39 (Figure 25) retained antitubulin activity. The biologic data showed that click chalcones were inactive, and suggested that the olefinic ring might not be merely a structural linker.74
