We attempted to replace a benzopyran ring of 4-[(N-imidazol-2-ylmethyl)-4-chloroanilino]benzopyran, previously discovered as anti-angiogenic agent with antitumor activity, with pyranopyridines. The [3,2-c]-, [3,2-b]-, [2,3-c]-, and [2,3-b]-pyranopyridines with N-(imidazol-2-ylmethyl)aniline moiety at the 4-position, were synthesized respectively, and evaluated for primary anti-angiogenic properties through primary cultured HUVEC tube formation assay. From this study, we found that the pyranopyridine ring, especially [3,2-b]- and [2,3-c]-isomer, can replace the benzopyran ring of the compound 1 and can be optimized through the introduction of substituents both on the pyranopyridine ring and the aniline moiety for the identification of a novel anti-angiogenic agent.
