Selectivity of 4,5,6,7‐tetrabromobenzotriazole, an ATP site‐directed inhibitor of protein kinase CK2 (‘casein kinase‐2’)
The specificity of 4,5,6,7‐tetrabromo‐2‐azabenzimidazole (TBB), an ATP/GTP competitive inhibitor of protein kinase casein kinase‐2 (CK2), has been examined against a panel of 33 protein kinases,Expand

Purine nucleoside phosphorylases: properties, functions, and clinical aspects.
The ubiquitous purine nucleoside phosphorylases (PNPs) play a key role in the purine salvage pathway, and PNP deficiency in humans leads to an impairment of T-cell function, usually with no apparentExpand

Casein kinase type II is involved in the inhibition by 5,6-dichloro-1-beta-D-ribofuranosylbenzimidazole of specific RNA polymerase II transcription.
We have described a HeLa protein kinase whose activity is inhibited by the nucleotide analogue 5,6-dichloro-1-beta-D-ribofuranosylbenzimidazole (DRB) at concentrations similar to those required toExpand

Ribofuranosyl-benzimidazole derivatives as inhibitors of casein kinase-2 and casein kinase-1.
5,6-Dichloro-1-(beta-D-ribofuranosyl)benzimidazole (DiCl-RB) is a powerful inhibitor of casein kinase-2 (CK-2) [Zandomeni, R. et al. (1986) J. Biol. Chem. 261, 3414-3420]. Here a series of 17Expand

Comparative efficacy of antiherpes drugs against different strains of herpes simplex virus.
A large variety of antiherpes compounds was compared for their inhibitory activity against laboratory strains and clinical isolates of herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and type 2. From studiesExpand

Molecular mechanism of human Nrf2 activation and degradation: role of sequential phosphorylation by protein kinase CK2.
Nrf2 is a key transcription factor in the cellular response to oxidative stress. In this study we identify two phosphorylated forms of endogenous human Nrf2 after chemically induced oxidative stressExpand

Halogenated benzimidazoles and benzotriazoles as selective inhibitors of protein kinases CK I and CK II from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and other sources.
Several halogeno benzimidazole riboside inhibitors of animal and plant protein kinases CK I and CK II (also known as casein kinases I and II), were found to be effective inhibitors of SaccharomycesExpand

Halogenated benzimidazoles and benzotriazoles as inhibitors of the NTPase/helicase activities of hepatitis C and related viruses.
A search has been initiated for lead inhibitors of the nonstructural protein 3 (NS3)-associated NTPase/helicase activities of hepatitis C virus, the related West Nile virus, Japanese encephalitisExpand

Tetrabromobenzotriazole (TBBt) and tetrabromobenzimidazole (TBBz) as selective inhibitors of protein kinase CK2: evaluation of their effects on cells and different molecular forms of human CK2.
The development of selective cell-permeable inhibitors of protein kinase CK2 has represented an important advance in the field. However, it is important to not overlook the existence of discreteExpand
