2-(3‘,4‘,5‘-Trimethoxybenzoyl)-3-amino-5-aryl/heteroaryl thiophene derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for antiproliferative activity, inhibition of tubulin polymerization, and cell cycle effects. SARs were elucidated with various substitutions on the aryl moiety 5-position of the thienyl ring. Substituents at the para-position of the 5-phenyl group showed antiproliferative activity in the order of FCH3 > OCH3BrNO2 > CF3I > OEt. Several of these compounds led to arrest of HL-60 cells in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle and induction of apoptosis.
