Sandwich and half-sandwich derivatives of Platensimycin: synthesis and biological evaluation


Patra, Malay; Gasser, Gilles; Wenzel, Michaela; Merz, Klaus; Bandow, Julia E; Metzler-Nolte, Nils (2012). Sandwich and half-sandwich derivatives of Platensimycin: synthesis and biological evaluation. Organometallics:5760-5771.

Abstract

The multistep synthesis and biological evaluation of five structurally diverse, chiral and achiral CpMn(CO)3 (4, 7 and 8), (η6-arene)Cr(CO)3 (5), and [3]ferrocenophane-1-one (6) containing platensimycin (1) derivatives are described in this report. The structures were inspired by the antibiotic platensimycin. All the chiral compounds presented in this report are racemates. The new compounds were unambiguously characterized by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, IR spectroscopy, and elemental analysis and in certain cases by X-ray crystallography (4, 16, 18, and 29). The antibacterial and antitumor activity of selected derivatives was tested. Molecular modeling suggests that the derivatives described here may well fit into the active site of the FabF enzyme, which is the biological target of platensimycin. Hence, the antimicrobial activities of our new bioorganometallices 4–8 and the protected amide intermediates 15, 17, 18, 23, 28, 29, and 31 were tested against various Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains. However, all compounds were inactive up to concentrations of 180 μg/mL. The cytotoxicity of compounds 4 and 6 and the protected amide intermediates 15, 17, 18, 23, 28, 29, and 31 was tested against HepG2 and PT45 mammalian cancer cell lines. Surprisingly, all compounds containing a trimethylsilylethyl ester functionality at the aromatic ring (17, 23, 29, and 31) displayed rather high cytotoxicity between 2 and 9 μM.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
