A new method of preparation for natural product Uncinine was reported. According to the method, a series of novel butenolides derivatives were designed and synthesized based on the natural product Uncinine. Most of the synthetic compounds showed significant anti proliferation activity against MGC-803. Among of them, (Z)-5-(4-(tert-butyl)-benzylidene)-3-(morpholinomethyl)furan-2(5H)-one (9l) showed potent anticancer effect with IC50 of 2.9 μmol/L in gastric cancer cell MGC803 and showed good selectivity to gastric cancer cells MGC803, HGC27, SGC7901 and less cytotoxicity in normal gastric epithelial cell line (GES1). The research on the molecular level suggests that the mechanism of compound 9l inducing apoptosis in gastric cancer cells is partially dependent on activation of caspase-9/3.
