Abstract: There are limited studies centring on the potential of thiazolidin-4-ones as anticancer agents. In this study, a new series of 2-(3-substituted-1H- pyrazol-4-yl)-3-(3-substituted-5-sulfanyl-1,2,4-triazol-4-yl)-1, 3-thiazolidin-4-one (4a-o) have been synthesized by cyclo-condensation reaction of 5-substituted-4-[(3-substituted-1H-pyrazol-4-ylmethylidene)amino]-2H-1,2,4- triazole-3-thione (3a-o) and thioglycolic acid. The structures of all the synthesized compounds were confirmed by elemental analysis, spectral techniques like IR, 1H NMR, and mass spectroscopy. Few compounds exhibited dose-dependent cytotoxic effect in MTT assay in human breast cancer (MCF-7) cells. Apoptotic degradation of DNA due to action of potent thiazolidin-4-ones was analysed by agarose gel electrophoresis and visualized by ethidium bromide staining (comet assay). A concentration-dependent increase in tail length and olive tail moment was observed when treated with thiazolidin-4-ones. In vitro antioxidant studies like DPPH and ABTS-free radical scavenging assays-indicated moderate activity of thiazolidin-4-ones. 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
