Mutations of the DNA repair proteins BRCA1/2 are synthetically lethal with the DNA repair enzyme poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP), which when inhibited, leads to cell death due to the absence of compensatory DNA repair mechanism. The potency of PARP inhibitors has now been clinically proven. However, disappointingly, acquired resistance mediated by the(More)
6-(3-Methyltriaz-1-en-1-yl)-1H-benzo[de]isoquinoline-1,3(2H)-dione referred to as EG22 (8a), is an open-chain 3-alkyl-1,2,3-triazene termed "combi-molecule" designed to inhibit poly(adenosine diphosphate ribose) polymerase (PARP) and damage DNA. To delay its hydrolysis, acetylation of N3 was required. Being a monoalkyl-1,2,3-triazene, EG22 could assume two(More)
In order to enhance the cytotoxic potential of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors in BRCA1 or 2 deficient tumours, we designed a series of molecules containing a 1,2,3-triazene moiety tethered to a PARP targeting scaffold. A cell-based selectivity assay involving a BRCA2-deficient Chinese hamster cell line and its corresponding BRCA2 wild type(More)
