In Vitro Anti-Proliferation/Cytotoxic Activity of Epingaione and its Derivatives on the Human SHSY5Y Neuroblastoma and TE-671 Sarcoma cells

Epingaione (4-Methyl-1-(5-methyl-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-[2,3’]bifuranyl-5-yl)-pentan-2-one) was isolated as one of the major lipophilic secondary metabolites from the leaves and stems of Bontia daphnoides L. The compound gave 79.24% and 50.83% anti-proliferation/cytotoxic activity on the human SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma and TE-671 sarcoma cells in vitro at 50 μg/mL, respectively. Epingaione was transformed into eleven derivatives under laboratory conditions using ethanol, some gave greater anti-proliferation/cytotoxic activity on the cancer cell lines tested.
