Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Among a library of 17 bisbenzamidines connected with various linkers, compounds with a flexible pentanediamide (10) or hexanediamide (12) linker were the most potent derivatives against rat Pneumocystis carinii (IC50 values of 3 and 2 nM, respectively) and had the highest selectivity index ratios (GI50 of human tumor cells/IC50 of rat P. carinii cells) of >104. Seven compounds caused 50% growth inhibition (GI50) of tumor cells at concentrations of <100 µM while the remaining ten were not cytotoxic. DNA binding affinity (?Tm) of the tested compounds did not correlate with either their anti-P. carinii activity or cytotoxicity.
