We synthesized some analogs of 1a, i.e.1b-gand other derivatives in which theNHgroup is variably alkylated, with the aim to obtain more active compounds as well as to performstructure-activity relationship(SAR) studies.We obtained a quite active antiproliferative compound, the 3,4-di-p-tolylisoxazolo[3,4-d]pyridazin-7(6H)-one 1d, and verified the importance for the antiproliferative activity of the aril, and not alkyl, groups linkedto the isoxazolo-pyridazinone moiety. Studies performed on the cell cycle progression and on some cellulartarget (ATM, procaspase-2 proteins and H2AX histone) demonstrated that 1d produces an increase of thecell population in pre-G0/G1 and induces cellular death by apoptosis, damaging the DNA by double strandbreaks. UV-vis titration and viscosity measurement showed that the compound is able to give an interactionwith the B-DNA.1. Renzi G., Dal Piaz V. (2004)Gazz. Chim. It.95: 1478–1491
