Abstract

We have discovered O6-benzyl glaziovianin A, which showed stronger inhibition of microtubule polymerization (IC50 = 2.1 μM) than known α,β-tubulin inhibitors, such as colchicine and glaziovianin A. Also, we performed competition binding experiments of O6-benzyl glaziovianin A and revealed that O6-benzyl glaziovianin A binds to the colchicine binding site with high affinity. It is interesting that glaziovianin A derivatives change their mode of action in benzylation at the O6(α,β-tubulin inhibitor) or O7(γ-tubulin-specific inhibitor) position.
