Abstract

We synthesized (+)-decursin derivatives substituted with cinnamoyl- and phenyl propionyl groups originating from (+)-CGK062 and screened them using a cell-based assay to detect relative luciferase reporter activity. Of this series, compound . 8b, in which a 3-acetoxy cinnamoyl group was introduced, most potently inhibited (97.0%) the Wnt/β-catenin pathway. Specifically, compound . 8b dose-dependently inhibited Wnt3a-induced expression of the β-catenin response transcription (CRT) and increased β-catenin degradation in HEK293 reporter cells. Furthermore, compound . 8b suppressed expression of the downstream β-catenin target genes cyclin D1 and c-myc and suppressed PC3 cell growth in a concentration-dependent manner.
