Two series of 6,7-disubstituted-4-phenoxyquinoline derivatives bearing 2,4-imidazolinedione/pyrazolone scaffold were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their c-Met kinase inhibition and cytotoxicity against HT-29, H460, A549, MKN-45, and U87MG cancer cell lines in vitro. The pharmacological data indicated that most of the tested compounds showed moderate to significant cytotoxicity and high selectivity against HT-29, H460 and A549 cancer cell lines as compared with foretinib. The SAR analyses indicated that compounds with halogen groups, especially trifluoromethyl groups at 2-position on the phenyl ring (moiety B) were more effective. In this study, a promising compound 17 (c-Met IC50 = 2.20 nM, a multi-target tyrosine kinase inhibitor) showed the most potent antitumor activities with IC50 values of 0.14 μM, 0.18 μM, 0.09 μM, 0.03 μM, and 1.06 μM against HT-29, H460, A549, MKN-45, and U87MG cell lines, respectively. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.

A series of 4-(2-fluorophenoxy)quinoline derivatives containing an acylhydrazone moiety were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro biological activities against c-Met kinase and five cancer cell lines (A549, H460, HT-29, MKN-45, and U87MG). Most compounds showed weak to excellent antiproliferative activity. The most promising analog, 40 (c-Met IC50 = 1.86 nM), displayed 1.3-, 6.8-, 1.5-, 3.5-fold increase against HT-29, H460, A549 and U87MG cell lines, respectively, compared with Foretinib. An analysis of structure-activity relationships revealed that an acylhydrazone scaffold with an unsubstituted sp2 hybridized carbon adjacent to the 4-CF3 phenyl ring is favorable for antitumor activity. © 2014 Elsevier Masson SAS.

A series of novel 4-phenoxyquinoline derivatives containing pyridazinone moiety were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against five cancer cell lines (HT-29, H460, A549, MKN-45, and U87MG). Most of the compounds exhibited moderate-to-significant cytotoxicity and high selectivity against one or more cell lines. Compounds 15a, 20a, 15b, 15c, 20d, and 16e were further examined for their inhibitory activity against c-Met kinase. The most promising compound 15a (c-Met half-maximal inhibitory concentration [IC50] = 2.15 nM) showed remarkable cytotoxicity against HT-29, H460, and A549 cell lines with IC50 values of 0.10 μM, 0.13 μM, and 0.05 μM, respectively, and thus it was 1.5- to 2.3-fold more potent than foretinib. Their preliminary structure-activity relationships (SARs) studies indicate that electron-withdrawing groups on the terminal phenyl rings are beneficial for improving the antitumor activity. © 2014 Published by Elsevier Masson SAS.
