Uracil derivatives bearing substituted or unsubstituted vinyl groups at position C6 and alkyl- or arylthio groups at position C5 were synthesized and tested in vitro for antiviral and antiproliferative activity. None of the compounds were active against HIV-1. However, some of them inhibited the proliferation of leukemia, lymphoma and solid tumor-derived cell lines at micromolar concentrations.

Abstract

Uracil derivatives bearing substituted or unsubstituted vinyl groups at position C6 and alkyl- or arylthio groups at position C5 were synthesized and tested in vitro for antiviral and antiproliferative activity. None of the compounds were active against HIV-1. However, some of them inhibited the proliferation of leukemia, lymphoma and solid tumor-derived cell lines at micromolar concentrations. The maximum potency of antiproliferative activity correlates with the presence of unsubstituted vinyl groups and alkyl- or arylthio substituents.
