This paper reports the synthesis of a series of evodiamine derivatives. We assayed the ability to inhibit cell growth on three human tumour cell lines (H460, MCF-7 and HepG2) and we evaluated the capacity to interfere with the catalytic activity of topoisomerase I both by the relaxation assay and the occurrence of the cleavable complex. Moreover, whose effect on sirtuins 1, 2 and 3 was investigated. Finally, molecular docking analyses were performed in an attempt to rationalize the biological results.
