|Abstract: ||Cellular screening of various synthetic triterpenoid compounds formally derived from lupane has identified a number of analogues as potential anticancer drug candidates. Here we describe the synthesis and structure−activity relationships of betulin and betulinic acid derivatives containing an E-ring modified with different oxygen functions. Thus compounds containing the lup-18-en-21-one, lup-18-ene-21,22-dione, 18,19-secolupane, and the highly oxygenated 18,19-secolupane systems, as well as des-E-lupane derivatives, were prepared from the readily available natural pentacyclic triterpene betulin using oxidative procedures. These compounds were named betulinines. We demonstrate that only selected compounds, particularly those containing a lupane E-ring-derived unsaturated ketone or diketone function, possessed in vitro cytotoxic activity against tumor cell lines, suggesting a structure−activity relationship.|
