Abstract Eleven 2,4-dihydroxychalcone compounds were synthesized and identified as reversible and competitive cell division cycle 25 (CDC25) B and protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) 1B inhibitors with inhibition values in the micromolar range. The results showed that nine compounds significantly inhibited CDC25B phosphatase, whereas seven compounds inhibited the activity against PTP1B in vitro. Compound 8 had the greatest inhibition activity against CDC25B and PTP1B in vitro, with percentage inhibition values of 97.5\% and 96.3\% at a dose of 20 microg/mL, respectively. Cytotoxic activity assays revealed that compound 8 was the most potent against HCT116, HeLa, and A549 cells. Furthermore, compound 8 exhibited potent antitumor activity in a colo205 xenograft model.
