Summary of "(±)-trans-Dihydronarciclasine and (±)-trans-dihydrolycoricidine analogues modified in their ring A: Evaluation of their anticancer activity and a SAR study."

A series of (±)-trans-dihydronarciclasine and (±)-trans-dihydrolycoricidine derivatives with variously substituted ring A was synthesised and evaluated for their antiproliferative activity against 60 human tumour cell lines (NCI60), representing leukemia, melanoma, and cancers of the lung, colon, brain, ovary, breast, prostate, as well as kidney in vitro. Among the 13 alkaloids screened, (±)-trans-dihydronarciclasine showed the highest potency as a cytotoxic molecule. A structure-activity relationship (SAR) study indicated that the presence of a hydroxy group at position 7 and a rigid, 1,3-benzodioxole scaffold were essential for the antiproliferative activity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The joining of RNA from two different genes. One type of trans-splicing is the "spliced leader" type (primarily found in protozoans such as trypanosomes and in lower invertebrates such as nematodes) which results in the addition of a capped, noncoding, spliced leader sequence to the 5' end of mRNAs. Another type of trans-splicing is the "discontinuous group II introns" type (found in plant/algal chloroplasts and plant mitochondria) which results in the joining of two independently transcribed coding sequences. Both are mechanistically similar to conventional nuclear pre-mRNA cis-splicing. Mammalian cells are also capable of trans-splicing.

A member of the P450 superfamily, this enzyme catalyzes the first oxidative step of the phenylpropanoid pathway in higher PLANTS by transforming trans-cinnamate into p-coumarate.

An enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of geranylgeranyl diphosphate from trans, trans-farnesyl diphosphate and isopentenyl diphosphate.

Trans-acting proteins which accelerate retroviral virus replication. The vpr proteins act in trans to increase the levels of specified proteins. vpr is short for viral protein R, where R is undefined.

A peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase and member of the cyclophilin family. It catalyzes the cis-trans isomerization of imide-like peptide bonds that occur between PROLINE and other amino acids to facilitate PROTEIN FOLDING.
