Abstract

((3RS,5SR)- and ((3RS,5RS)-2-(2-methoxybenzyl)-3-(1,10-phenanthrolin-2-yl)isoxazolidin-5-yl)methanol have been synthesized, according to 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition methodology, as DNA intercalating agents and evaluated for their anticancer activity against human cervical carcinoma HeLa and head and neck squamous cells carcinoma cell lines. The synthesized compounds exhibited good cytotoxic activity with IC50 better than cisplatin, used as the main and effective treatment for HNSCC, and a 24.3–72.0-fold selectivity respect to the 184B5 non-cancerous immortalized breast epithelial cell lines. Unwinding assay, circular dichroism data, and Uv-vis melting experiments confirmed that these compounds act as DNA intercalators with a binding constant in the order of 104 M−1. Docking studies showed that both compounds can interact as intercalating agent with both poly-d(AT)2 and poly-d(GC)2, preferring an entrance by the minor groove of the poly-d(AT)2.
