Synthesis and cytotoxic evaluation of novel amide-triazole-linked triterpenoid-AZT conjugates

A variety of triterpenoid propargyl amides, prepared from the corresponding acids, was used as substrates for the construction of novel triazole-tethered triterpenoid-AZT conjugates via a click chemistry-mediated coupling with azidothymidine (AZT). Thus, nineteen new hybrids were successfully prepared and evaluated as cytotoxic agents, revealing an interesting anticancer activity of four triterpenoid-AZT hybrids on KB and Hep-G2 tumor cell lines
