Abstract: Series of glucosyl esters derivatives were synthesized by enzymatic acylation and some surface properties, and cell activity were calculated and tested. The antitumor activity in vitro against three cancer cells, human colon carcinoma (K562), human hepatoma (HepG2), and human breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) of compounds, were evaluated using MTT methods. The glucosyl esters could significantly displayed high anticancer activity. Thereinto, compounds 12 and 12′ showed higher inhibition effect to cancer cells than others. Several compounds were more active than control drug 5-FU. The structure–activity relationship analysis revealed that lipophilic properties might be essential parameter for their activity.

Keywords: Amino acid ; Antitumor cell lines ; Glucosyl ester
