Title: Tri-, tetra- and heptacyclic perylene analogues as new potential antineoplastic agents based on DNA telomerase inhibition.

Abstract: A recent approach in anticancer chemotherapy envisages telomerase as a potentially useful target. An attractive strategy deals with the development of compounds able to stabilize telomeric DNA in the G-quadruplex folded structure and, among them, a prominent position is found in the perylenes. With the aim to further investigate the role of drug structure, in view of possible pharmaceutical applications, we synthesized a series of compounds related to PIPER, a well-known perylene-based telomerase inhibitor. We modified the number of condensed aromatic rings and introduced different side chains to modulate drug protonation state and extent of self-aggregation. Effective telomerase inhibition was induced by heptacyclic analogues only, some showing a remarkably wide selectivity index with reference to inhibition of Taq polymerase. G-quadruplex stabilization was monitored by circular dichroism and melting experiments. Cell cytotoxicity measurements indicated a poor short-term cell killing ability for the best G-quartet binders. Besides the presence of a planar seven-condensed ring system, the introduction of a cyclic amine in the side chains critically affects the selectivity window.
