Tryprostatin B and demethoxyfumitremorgin C are fungal inhibitors of mammalian cell cycle progression at the G(2)/M transition. N-Alkyl derivatives of the L-TrP-L-Pro diketopiperazine were prepared as analogues of tryprostatin B, and two of these were more active than the natural product. A second series of cis- and trans-tetrahydro-beta-carbolines annulated to a diketopiperazine were prepared as analogues of demethoxyfumitremorgin C. The nature of the alkyl substituent, as well as its cis or trans relationship in the tetrahydro-beta-carboline ring, was found to have a significant effect on cytotoxic activity. Small cis-alkyl substituents fall into the demethoxyfumitremorgin C family, whereas bulky benzyl trans compounds appear to act via a different mechanism of action.
