Abstract :
Rhabdoid tumors (RTs) are an extremely aggressive pediatric malignancy that results from loss of the INI1/hSNF5 tumor suppressor gene. Loss of INI1 results in aberrant expression of Cyclin D1, which supports rhabdoid tumorigenesis and survival. 4-HPR, a synthetic retinoid that down-modulates Cyclin D1, has shown promise in treating various tumors including RTs. In this study, we have generated a chemical library of peptidomimetic derivatives of 4-HPR in an attempt to create a more biologically active compound for use as a therapeutic agent against RTs and other tumors. We have synthesized novel peptidomimetic compound by substituting alkene backbone with a ring structure that retains the biological activity in cell culture models of rhabdoid tumors. We further identified derivative of peptidomimetic compound (11d, IC50 not, vert, similar 3 μM) with approximately five times higher potency than 4-HPR (1, IC50 not, vert, similar 15 μM) based on a survival assay against rhabdoid tumor cells. These studies indicate that peptidomimetic derivatives that retain the cytotoxic activity are promising novel chemotherapeutic agents against RTs and other tumors.
