Abstract
Twenty-six beta-carbolines were evaluated for in vitro cytotoxicity in a hu man tumor cell line panel. Harmine (3) showed significant activity against several cell lines including three drug-resistant KB sublines with various resistance mechanisms. alpha-(4-Nitrobenzylidine) harmine (16) had a broad cytotoxicity spectrum (ED50 values from 0.3-1.2 mu g/mL against 1A9, KB, Sa OS-2, A549, SK-MEL-2, U-87-MG, and MCF-7 cells).
