The synthesis, and anticancer activity of a novel triterpenoid thiazole is reported.

What is it about?

The structural modification of natural products has shown to be a remarkable tool in the generation of novel bioactive molecules. Herein, the synthesis, structural analysis and anticancer activity of the novel triterpenoid thiazole 3 is reported. The cytotoxicity and antiproliferative activity of 1, the diastereomeric mixture of 2-bromo ochraceolide A (2a and 2b) and 3 against three cancer cell lines (MCF-7, MDA-MB-231 and SiHa) were investigated. The novel thiazole derivative 3 exhibited significant cytotoxicity and antiproliferative activity against the three cancer cells.
