Abstract

N-Substituted phthalimides (2-substituted 1H-isoindole-1,3-diones) were prepared and their inhibitory effects on tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) production by human leukemia cell line THP-1 stimulated with 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA) or okadaic acid (OA) were examined. A structure-activity relationship study of these phthalimide analogues revealed that their inhibitory effects on TPA- and OA-induced TNF-α production by THP-1 cells are well correlated to each other, i.e. they may involve the same target molecule(s). An analysis by the use of phthalimide analogue-immobilized affinity gels indicated the existence of several phthalimide-binding proteins in THP-1 cell extract.
