Abstract

New oleanane triterpenoids with various substituents at the C-17 position of 2-cyano-3,12-dioxooleana-1,9(11)-dien-28-oic acid (CDDO) and methyl 2-carboxy-3,12-dioxooleana-1,9(11)-dien-28-oate were synthesized. Among them, 2-cyano-3,12-dioxooleana-1,9(11)-dien-28-onitrile shows extremely high inhibitory activity (IC(50)=1 pM level) against production of nitric oxide induced by interferon-gamma in mouse macrophages. This potency is about 100 times and 30 times more potent than CDDO and dexamethasone, respectively.
