    Canthin-6-one displays antiproliferative activity and causes accumulation of cancer cells in the G2/M phase.[Pubmed: 25379743]
    To gain better insight into this mechanism, the antiproliferative effect of a commercially available Canthin-6-one (1) was examined dose-dependently on six cancer cell lines (human prostate, PC-3; human colon, HT-29; human lymphocyte, Jurkat; human cervix, HeLa; rat glioma, C6; and mouse embryonic fibroblasts, NIH-3T3). Cytotoxic effects of Canthin-6-one were investigated on the same cancer cell lines by procaspase-3 cleavage and on normal human skin fibroblasts. Strong antiproliferative effects of the compound were observed in all cell lines, whereas cytotoxic effects were very dependent on cell type. A better definition of the mechanism of action of Canthin-6-one was obtained on PC-3 cells, by showing that it decreases BrdU incorporation into DNA by 60% to 80% and mitotic spindle formation by 70% and that it causes a 2-fold accumulation of cells in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle. Together, the data suggest that the primary effect of Canthin-6-one (1) is antiproliferative, possibly by interfering with the G2/M transition. Proapoptotic effects might result from this disturbance of the cell cycle.

    The MFS-type efflux pump Flr1 induced by Yap1 promotes canthin-6-one resistance in yeast.[Pubmed: 23912082]
    Screening for suppressors of Canthin-6-one toxicity in yeast identified Yap1, a transcription factor involved in cell response to a broad range of injuries. Although Canthin-6-one did not promote a significant oxidative stress, overexpression of YAP1 gene clearly increased resistance to this drug. We demonstrated that Yap1-mediated resistance involves the plasma membrane major-facilitator-superfamily efflux pump Flr1 but not the vacuolar ATP-binding-cassette transporter Ycf1. FLR1 overexpression was sufficient to reduce sensitivity to the drug, but strictly dependent on a functional YAP1 gene.

    Pharmacological mechanisms underlying the anti-ulcer activity of methanol extract and canthin-6-one of Simaba ferruginea A. St-Hil. in animal models.[Pubmed: 21236329]
    RELEVANCE: Simaba ferruginea A. St-Hil. (Simaroubaceae) is a subshrub typical of the Brazilian Cerrado, whose rhizomes are popularly used as infusion or decoction for the treatment of gastric ulcers, diarrhea and fever. AIM OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the pharmacological mechanism(s) of action of the antiulcer effects of the methanol extract of Simaba ferruginea and its alkaloid Canthin-6-one. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Rhizome of Simaba ferruginea was macerated with methanol to obtain the methanol extract (MESf) from which was obtained, the chloroform fraction. Canthin-6-one alkaloid (Cant) was purified and then isolated from the chloroform fraction (CFSf).

    Canthin-6-one alkaloids and a tirucallanoid from Eurycoma longifolia and their cytotoxic activity against a human HT-1080 fibrosarcoma cell line.[Pubmed: 20184012]
    Phytochemical investigation of the stems of Eurycoma longifolia Jack led to the isolation of two new Canthin-6-one alkaloids, 4,9-dimethoxyCanthin-6-one (1) and 10-hydroxy-11-methoxyCanthin-6-one (2), and a new tirucallane-type triterpenoid, 23,24,25-trihydroxytirucall-7-en-3,6-dione (3), along with 37 known compounds. Among these, an oxasqualenoid (4) was isolated as a natural product for the first time. The structures of the isolates were elucidated by spectroscopic and mass spectrometric means. All the isolates were evaluated for their cytotoxic activity against a HT-1080 human fibrosarcoma cell line. Among them, 9,10-dimethoxyCanthin-6-one (14, IC50 = 5.0 microM), 10-hydroxy-9-methoxyCanthin-6-one (15, IC50 = 7.2 microM), dihydroniloticin (18, IC50 = 8.2 microM), and 14-deacetyleurylene (34, IC50 = 3.2 microM) displayed stronger activity than the positive control 5-FU (IC50 = 9.2 microM).

    Canthin-6-one alkaloids from Picrasma quassioides and their cytotoxic activity.[Pubmed: 19031238]
    A new alkaloid, 4,5-dimethoxy-10-hydroxyCanthin-6-one (1), was isolated from the stem of Picrasma quassioides Bennet (Simaroubaceae) together with four known Canthin-6-one alkaloids, 8-hydroxyCanthin-6-one (2), 4,5-dimethoxyCanthin-6-one (3), 5-hydroxy-4-methoxyCanthin-6-one (4), and 3-methylcanthin-5,6-dione (5). Their structures were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data. The cytotoxic activity of the Canthin-6-one alkaloids was evaluated using human nasopharyngeal carcinoma (CNE2) and human liver cancer (Bel-7402) cell lines. Among these isolates, compounds 1-4 exhibited significant cytotoxic activity against CNE2 cell line.
