Graphical Abstract:


A series of novel triazole functionalized pyrido [3',2':4,5] furo[3,2-d] pyrimidin-4 (3H)-one derivatives 7a-p were prepared from ethyl furo[2,3-b]pyridine-2-carboxylate 3 on reaction with ammonia to afford furo[2,3-b]pyridine-2-carboxamide 4. This compound, on reaction with triethyl orthoformate TEOF, gave compound 5. Compound 5 on propargylation, followed by a reaction with substituted aryl azides under Sharpless reaction conditions, furnished triazole tagged pyrido [3',2':4,5]furo[3,2-d] pyrimidin-4(3H)-one derivatives. All the products 7a-p were screened against four human cancer cell lines, such as HeLa - Cervical cancer (CCL-2), COLO 205- Colon cancer (CCL-222), HepG2- Liver cancer (HB-8065), and MCF7 - Breast cancer (HTB-22) and one normal cell line (HEK 293). Compounds 7b, 7n, 7o and 7p, which showed promising anticancer activity, were identified and found to be non-toxic to normal cell line. Studies for HeLa, COLO205, HepG2, and MCF-7 using CoMFA and CoMSIA were carried out . Models from 3D-QSAR provided a strong basis for future rational design of more active and selective HeLa, COLO205, HepG2, and MCF-7 cell line inhibitors.

Keywords: Pyrido[1, 2-a]pyrimidin-4-one, cyclisation, propargylation, sharpless conditions, triazole, anticancer activity, 3D QSAR, CoMFA and CoMSIA studies.
