Abstract

Here a series of dehydroepiandrosterone-17-hydrazone and estrone-17-hydrazone derivatives possessing various aromatic heterocycle structures in 17-side chain of their steroidal nucleus were synthesized and their structures were evaluated. The antiproliferative activity of synthesized compounds against some cancer cells was investigated. The results have demonstrated that some dehydroepiandrosterone-17-hydrazone derivatives show distinct antiproliferative activity against some cancer cells through inducing cancer cell apoptosis, and compound 8 with a quinoline structure in 17-side chain displays excellent antiproliferative activity in vitro against SGC 7901 cancer cell (human gastric carcinoma) with an IC50 value of 1 μM. In addition, estrone-17-hydrazone derivatives having a key feature of indole group in the structure showed a special obvious cytotoxicity against HeLa cells, but almost inactive against other cells. The information obtained from the studies is valuable for the design of novel steroidal chemotherapeutic drugs.
