Abstract

A series of latonduine and indoloquinoline derivatives HL1-HL8 and their copper(II) complexes (1-8) were synthesized and comprehensively characterized. The structures of five compounds (HL6, [CuCl(L1)(DMF)]·DMF, [CuCl(L2)(CH3OH)], [CuCl(L3)]·0.5H2O, and [CuCl2(H2L5)]Cl·2DMF) were elucidated by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The copper(II) complexes revealed low micro- to sub-micromolar IC50 values with promising selectivity toward human colon adenocarcinoma multidrug-resistant Colo320 cancer cells as compared to the doxorubicin-sensitive Colo205 cell line. The lead compounds HL4 and 4 as well as HL8 and 8 induced apoptosis efficiently in Colo320 cells. In addition, the copper(II) complexes had higher affinity to DNA than their metal-free ligands. HL8 showed selective inhibition for the PIM-1 enzyme, while 8 revealed strong inhibition of five other enzymes, i.e., SGK-1, PKA, CaMK-1, GSK3ß, and MSK1, from a panel of 50 kinases. Furthermore, molecular modeling of the ligands and complexes showed a good fit to the binding pockets of these targets.
