Pharmacokinetics, tissue distribution, and metabolism of 17-(dimethylaminoethylamino)-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (NSC 707545) in CD2F1 mice and Fischer 344 rats
Abstract.Purpose: 17-(Dimethylaminoethylamino)-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17DMAG) is an analogue of the benzoquinone ansamycin compound 17-(allylamino)-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17AAG), which isExpand

Differential requirement of DNA replication for the cytotoxicity of DNA topoisomerase I and II inhibitors in Chinese hamster DC3F cells.
The cytotoxicity of topoisomerase inhibitors is thought to result from the induction of enzyme-mediated DNA breaks. The fact that these breaks reverse rapidly in cells programmed to die, led us toExpand

DNA interstrand cross-link and free radical formation in a human multidrug-resistant cell line from mitomycin C and its analogues.
A subline of the human breast tumor cell line (MCF-7), selected for resistance to Adriamycin and having the multidrug resistance phenotype, also developed significant cross-resistance to mitomycin CExpand

Increased CDA Expression/Activity in Males Contributes to Decreased Cytidine Analog Half-Life and Likely Contributes to Worse Outcomes with 5-Azacytidine or Decitabine Therapy
Purpose: The cytidine analogs 5-azacytidine and decitabine, used to treat myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), produce a molecular epigenetic effect, depletion of DNA-methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1). ThisExpand

Protein-linked DNA strand breaks induced in mammalian cells by camptothecin, an inhibitor of topoisomerase I.
Camptothecin was recently identified as an inhibitor of mammalian topoisomerase I. Similar to inhibitors of topoisomerase II, camptothecin produces DNA single-strand breaks (SSB) and DNA-proteinExpand

DNA alkali-labile sites induced by incorporation of 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine into DNA of mouse leukemia L1210 cells.
The effects of 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine on DNA in mouse L1210 leukemia cells were investigated using the alkaline elution technique. By comparing the DNA elution rate at pH 12.1 and 12.6, it was foundExpand

DNA damage, cytotoxicity and free radical formation by mitomycin C in human cells.
Mitomycin C (MMC), a quinone-containing antitumor drug, has been shown to alkylate DNA and to form DNA cross-links. The ability of MMC to alkylate O6-guanine and to form interstrand cross-links (ISC)Expand

Activated neutrophils induce prolonged DNA damage in neighboring cells.
We have measured the capacity of highly-purified, paraffin oil-elicited neutrophils to induce DNA single-strand breaks in a newly established plasmacytoma cell line, RIMPC 2304, which was induced byExpand

Murine pharmacokinetics of 6-aminonicotinamide (NSC 21206), a novel biochemical modulating agent.
The pyridine nucleotide 6-aminonicotinamide (6AN) was shown recently to sensitize a number of human tumor cell lines to cisplatin in vitro. The present studies were undertaken to compare the drugExpand
