Abstract

Prodigiosenes, possessing a 4-methoxypyrrolyldipyrrin skeleton, are known for their anti-cancer activity. Structural modification of the C-ring resulted in a series of prodigiosenes that displayed promising activity against leukemia cell lines during in vitro analysis against the NCI 60 cancer cell line panel. Further in vivo studies of these compounds using the zebrafish model showed persistence of anti-leukemia properties in human K562 chronic myelogenous leukemia cells.
