Chemical manipulations performed on 2-methyl-3-carbethoxyquinoline (1), a histone acetyltransferase inhibitor previously identified by our research group and active at the sub-millimolar/millimolar level, led to compounds bearing higher alkyl groups at the C2-quinoline or additional side chains at the C6-quinoline positions. Such compounds displayed at least threefold improved inhibitory potency toward p300 protein lysine acetyltransferase activity; some of them decreased histone H3 and H4 acetylation levels in U937 cells and induced high degrees of apoptosis (three compounds >10-fold higher than compound 1) after treatment of U937 cells.

Abstract

Chemical manipulations performed on 2-methyl-3-carbethoxyquinoline (1), a histone acetyltransferase inhibitor previously identified by our research group and active at the sub-millimolar/millimolar level, led to compounds bearing higher alkyl groups at the C2-quinoline or additional side chains at the C6-quinoline positions. Such compounds displayed at least threefold improved inhibitory potency toward p300 protein lysine acetyltransferase activity; some of them decreased histone H3 and H4 acetylation levels in U937 cells and induced high degrees of apoptosis (three compounds >10-fold higher than compound 1) after treatment of U937 cells.
