A C,D-seco-paclitaxel derivative 26 was prepared from taxine and tested for biological activity. Chemical reactivity of the seco-compounds proved to be substantially modified, with respects to taxoids. The corresponding C,D-seco-taxoid does not show tubulin stabilizing activity or cytotoxicity. Explanation of these observations based on molecular modeling is provided. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
