Quaternary benzo[c]phenanthridines such as fagaronine are natural substances which have been reported to exhibit anticancer and anti-leukemic properties. However, the therapeutic use of these molecules is limited due to the high dose required to exhibit anti-tumor activity and subsequent toxicity. In this study, we describe the therapeutic potential of a(More)
Angiogenesis plays a pivotal role in tumorigenesis and also contributes to the pathogenesis of hematologic malignancies. A number of plant compounds have shown efficacy in preclinical and clinical studies and some of them possess an anti-angiogenic activity. Our present findings report anti-angiogenic activities of ethoxyfagaronine (etxfag), a synthetic(More)
BACKGROUND Leukemic cell adhesion to proteins of the bone marrow microenvironment provides signals which control morphology, motility and cell survival. We described herein the ability of ethoxyfagaronine (etxfag), a soluble synthetic derivative of fagaronine, to prevent leukemic cell adhesion to fibronectin peptide (FN/V). METHODS Phosphorylation of fak(More)
