Small molecules that act on multiple biological targets have been proposed to combat the drug resistance commonly observed for cancer chemotherapy. By combining the structural features of known inhibitors of inosine monophosphate dehydrogense (IMPDH) and histone deacetylase (HDAC), dual inhibitors of IMPDH and HDAC based on the scaffold of cinnamic hydroxamic acid (CHA) have been designed, synthesized, and evaluated in biological assays. Key features, including the linker length, linker functionality, substitution position, and interacting groups, have been explored. Their individual contribution to the inhibitory activities against human IMPDH1 and IMPDH2 as well as HDAC has been assessed.
