摘要：Previously, we reported the discovery of a series of N-hydroxycinnamamide-based HDAC inhibitors, among which compound 11y exhibited high HDAC1/3 selectivity. In this current study, structural derivatization of Ily led to a new series of benzamide based HDAC inhibitors. Most of the compounds exhibited high HDACs inhibitory potency. Compound 11a (with 4-methoxybenzoyl as N-substituent in the cap and 4-(aminomethyl) benzoyl as the linker group) exhibited selectivity against HDAC1 to some extent, and showed potent antiproliferative activity against several tumor cell lines. In vivo studies revealed that compound 11a displayed potent oral antitumor activity in both hematological tumor cell U937 xenograft model and solid tumor cell HCT116 xenograft model with no obvious toxicity. Further modification of benzamide 3, hla and 19 afforded new thienyl and phenyl compounds (50a, 50b, 63a, 63b and 63c) with dramatic HDAC1 and HDAC2 dual selectivity, and the fluorine containing compound 56, with moderate HDAC3 selectivity.
