Antitumor agents. Part 215: antitubulin effects of cytotoxic B-ring modified allocolchicinoids.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

N-Acetylcolchinol methyl ether 1 served as the starting material to prepare the chloroacetamide (3) and epoxide (5) analogues. Both 3 and 5 were potent inhibitors of tubulin polymerization in vitro.
