Investigation of cytotoxic effects of 8 norbornane derivatives on 4 human cancer cell lines using the MTT assay.

A group of 8 structurally modified norbornane analogs, selected on basis of water solubility, was tested for its potential cytotoxic effects using a modified MTT assay. Four tumor cell lines, three hematological and a hepatocellular one were used as an experimental model system. Some analogs exhibited an antitumor effect which was shown to be tissue specific. The cytotoxic effect is most likely due to the nature of the side chains rather than to the basic bicyclic norbornane structure of the molecule. These results not only provide a basis for the synthesis of derivatives with effective antitumor activity, but also give some indication of the the molecular target of these compounds.[1]
