Fourteen novel 4-aminoquinazoline derivatives 2-15 were designed and synthesized. The structure of the newly synthesized compounds was established on the basis of elemental analyses, IR, (1)H-NMR, (13)C-NMR, and mass spectral data. The compounds were evaluated for their potential cytoprotective activity in murine Hepa1c1c7 cells. All of the synthesized compounds showed concentration-dependent ability to induce the cytoprotective enzyme NAD(P)H: quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1) with potencies in the low- to sub-micromolar range. This approach offers an encouraging framework which may lead to the discovery of potent cytoprotective agents.
