Quinazolines -1,3-benzodiazines are biological active compounds, which are used in the phamaceutical industry, in agriculture and in the medicine. As documented in the literature, many derivatives demonstrated anticancer activity and they act as multitarget agents. 3-(5-Nitro-2-thienyl)-9-chloro-5-morpholin-4-yl[1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-c] quinazoline (NTCHMTQ) -a new synthetically prepared quinazoline derivative was the most effective derivative in our primary cytotoxic screening. In this study, we

Possible interaction of 3-(5-nitro-2-thienyl)-9-chloro-5-morpholin-4-yl[1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-c] quinazoline with calf thymus DNA was tested by the DNA -modified screen -printed electrode. Quinazoline derivative acted cytotoxically on tumor cell line HeLa. The IC 100 value was 10 µg/ml. The IC 50 values was found to be less than 4 µg/ml, a limit put forward by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for classiffication of he compound as a potential anticancer drug. Quinazoline at micromolar concentrations induced morphological changes and necrosis of HeLa cells. Using the DNA based electrochemical biosensor, we have not found damage to DNA under in vitro conditions at an incubation of the biosensor in mixture with quinazoline.
