A series of functionalized phenyl oxazole derivatives was designed, synthesized and screened in vitro for their activities against LSD1 and for effects on viability of cervical and breast cancer cells, and in vivo for effects using zebrafish embryos. These compounds are likely to act via multiple epigenetic mechanisms specific to cancer cells including LSD1 inhibition.
