The epothilones are naturally occurring antimitotic drugs that share with the taxanes a similar mechanism of action without apparent structural similarity. Although photoaffinity labeling and electron crystallographic studies have identified the taxane-binding site on beta-tubulin, similar data are not available for epothilones. To identify tubulin residues(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous analogs of the antitumor agents epothilones A and B have been synthesized in search of better pharmacological profiles. Insights into the structure-activity relationships within the epothilone family are still needed and more potent and selective analogs of these compounds are in demand, both as biological tools and as chemotherapeutic(More)
