Abstract: Twelve C-ring modified spirostanyl glycosides were synthesized and evaluated for their cytotoxicity against the human myeloid leukemia cell line (HL-60). With the aim of assessing the influence of the hydrophobic character, the conformational flexibility and the stereochemistry of the C-ring functionalities on the cytotoxic activity, a variety of spirostanic aglycones incorporating methylene, methoxyl, alpha,beta-unsaturated ketone and lactone groups were subjected to a linear glycosylation strategy leading to glycosides derived from the 3,6-dipivaloylated beta-D-glucoside and the beta-chacotrioside moieties. The 3,6-dipivaloylated spirostanyl beta-D-glucosides showed moderate to good cytotoxic activity against HL-60, but no significant cytotoxicity against benign blood cells. However, the cytotoxicity of spirostanyl beta-chacotriosides was highly dependent on the nature of the C-ring functional groups of the steroidal aglycones. Actually, the chacotrioside-based saponins either with no functionality or bearing a hydrophobic methylene group at C-12 were the most cytotoxic ones against both HL-60 and benign blood cells. On the other hand, the incorporation of very polar functionalities and the opening of the ring C with the consequent loss of rigidity led to a significant drop in the cytotoxicity against HL-60. These results confirm that spirostanyl beta-chacotriosides including very lipophilic aglycones are the most cytotoxic ones among their congeners. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
