N-Acryloyl- and N-crotonyldeacetylcolchicine prepared from deacetylcolchiceine by conventional methods showed good binding to tubulin protein in vitro. N-Dideuterobutyryldeacetylcolchicine, prepared from deacetylcolchicine with dideuterobutyryl chloride behaved similarly, suggesting that tritiated analogs of N-propionyl- and N-butyryldeacetylcolchicine should be useful probes to study the colchicine binding site on tubulin protein.
