Recent era aims at developing safer partial Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPAR- γ) agonists in order to dodge the toxicity issues related to full agonists. With a view to develop non-thiazolidinediones as partial PPAR-γ agonists, novel analogues of oxazol-5-ones (3a-3q) were designed and virtually analyzed for their molecular and drug like properties. The newly synthesized compounds were further evaluated for their preliminary cytotoxicity in a panel of eight cancer cell lines using four concentrations at 10- fold dilutions. Sulforhodamine B (SRB) protein assay was used to estimate cell stability or growth. All the compounds demonstrated distinct effect in the extent of cytotoxicity in the breast cancer cell line MCF-7 with 3g specifically exhibiting partial PPAR-γ agonist activity and adipogenesis stimulating ability.
