Abstract

A series of pyrimidoquinazoline analogues, possessing either 4,5-g or 5,4-g fusion, were studied with respect to cytotoxicity, topoisomerase II inhibitory activity, in vivo activity, and DNA cleavage and DNA-protein cross-linking properties. These analogues were designed as electron-deficient anthraquinones with dual alkylating centers to cross-link DNA with topoisomerase II. Our studies verified the presence of DNA-protein cross-linking in vitro as well as topoisomerase II poisoning by pyrimidoquinazoline analogues. In addition, COMPARE analysis revealed that the pyrimidoquinazolines possess inhibitory activity against both topoisomerase II and protein kinases, such as the paullones, a dual property observed in other antineoplastic agents influencing phosphoester transfer.
