3'-Deamino-3'-(3-cyano-4-morpholinyl)doxorubicin is a new analogue that is 100 to 1000 times more potent than doxorubicin against tumors in cell culture or in mice, that is active by intraperitoneal, intravenous, or oral dosing, and that does not produce chronic myocardial lesions in mice. This analogue was encountered in studies on the reductive alkylation(More)
BES data on J/ψ → γ(KKππ) are presented. The KK̄ contribution peaks strongly near threshold. It is fitted with a broad 0 resonance with mass M = 1800 ± 100 MeV, width Γ = 500 ± 200 MeV. A broad 2 resonance peaking at 2020 MeV is also required with width ∼ 500 MeV. There is further evidence for a 2 component peaking at 2.55 GeV. The non-KK̄ contribution is(More)
We observe a narrow enhancement near 2m(p) in the invariant mass spectrum of pp pairs from radiative J/psi-->gammapp decays. No similar structure is seen in J/psi-->pi(0)pp decays. The results are based on an analysis of a 58 x 10(6) event sample of J/psi decays accumulated with the BESII detector at the Beijing electron-positron collider. The enhancement(More)
Reaction of daunorubicin (1) and adriamycin (2) with aldehydes and ketones in the presence of NaCNBH3 afforded N-alkyl- and N,N-dialkylanthracyclines along with their 13-dihydro derivatives. Product ratios depended upon the nature of the carbonyl reagent and the starting drug. The majority of these analogues retained in vivo antitumor activity comparable to(More)
Treatment of daunorubicin with methanolic ammonia affords 5-iminodaunorubicin, the first quinone-modified analogue of either daunorubicin or adriamycin. This product retains antileukemic activity in mice, is less cardiotoxic by electrocardiographic measurements in rats, and is nonmutagenic in Salmonella typhimurium (Ames test).
When using free energy-related physicochemical parameters, stimulation of NADPH oxidation by barbiturates and the N-oxidation of tertiary amines was found to be primarily dependent upon the lipophilic character of the substrates as measured by log P, where P is the partition coefficient from either 1-octanol-water or corn oil-water solvent systems. In(More)
Previously we reported that reductive alkylation of doxorubicin with 2,2'-oxybis[acetaldehyde] and NaBH3CN to form the 4''-morpholinyl derivative also gave the intensely potent 3''-cyano-4''-morpholinyl as a byproduct, by addition of CN- to an iminium intermediate in place of hydride. We now find that sugar 4'-OH is a third nucleophile that can add to the(More)
After cellular injury many endogenous toxins are released from injured cells and result in secondary injury. To elucidate mechanisms of such injury many of these toxins have been studied individually. However, the data obtained is only useful for reference and does not accurately represent the multifactorial situation under pathophysiological conditions.(More)
