      Abstract:

      Histone   deacetylases (HDACs) are a promising target for treating cancer   and some other disorders. Herein, based on the structure of our   previously reported tetrahydroisoquinoline-based hydroxamic   acids, a novel series of tyrosine-based hydroxamic acid   derivatives was designed and synthesized as HDACs inhibitors.   Compared with tetrahydroisoquinoline-based hydroxamic acids,   tyrosine-based hydroxamic acid derivatives exhibited more potent   HDAC8 inhibitory activity. However, the antiproliferative   activities and HeLa cell nuclear extract inhibition of several   selected tyrosine-based hydroxamic acids were moderate.
