A series of substituted dibenzo[c,e]azepine-5-ones (7a-h) were synthesized and
evaluated as P-glycoprotein (P-gp)-mediated multidrug resistance (MDR) reversal
agents. The most potent compound 7h could significantly and selectively enhance
the chemo-sensitivity of drug-resistant K562/A02 cells to the cytotoxic effect of
adriamycin (ADR) in a dose-dependent manner. Further studies indicated that 7h
could markedly increase intracellular accumulation of both rhodamine 123 and ADR
in K562/A02 cells and inhibit their efflux from the cells. And 7h had little
effect on the levels of P-gp mRNA and protein in K562/A02 cells. These results
suggest that the anti-MDR effect of 7h might be attributed to the inhibition of
drug efflux function of P-gp, leading to the increased drug accumulation in
K562/A02 cells, and thus the compound could be served as a lead for developing
P-gp-mediated MDR reversal agents.
