Investigation of the protein alkylation sites of the STAT3:STAT3 inhibitor Stattic by mass spectrometry.
STAT3 (Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription factor 3) is constitutively active in a wide range of human tumours. Stattic is one of the first non-peptidic small molecules reported toExpand

Targeting a c-MYC G-quadruplex DNA with a fragment library.
We report here on the screening of a fragment library against a G-quadruplex element in the human c-MYC promoter. The ten fragment hits had significant concordance between a biophysical assay, inExpand

Molecular Dynamics Studies of the STAT3 Homodimer: DNA Complex: Relationships between STAT3 Mutations and Protein-DNA Recognition
TLDR
Molecular dynamics simulations have been used to study the protein-DNA interactions of the activated STAT3 homodimer:DNA complex and the latent unphosphorylated STAT3 monomer . Expand

The influence of positional isomerism on G-quadruplex binding and anti-proliferative activity of tetra-substituted naphthalene diimide compounds.
The synthesis together with biophysical and biological evaluation of a series of tetra-substituted naphthalene diimide (ND) compounds, are presented. These compounds are positional isomers of aExpand

Small‐molecule G‐quadruplex interactions: Systematic exploration of conformational space using multiple molecular dynamics
G‐quadruplexes are higher‐order four‐stranded structures formed from repetitive guanine‐containing tracts in nucleic acids. They comprise a core of stacked guanine‐quartets linked by loops of lengthExpand

Flexibility and structural conservation in a c-KIT G-quadruplex
A quadruplex sequence from the promoter region of the c-KIT gene forms a stable quadruplex, as characterized by crystallographic and NMR methods. Two new crystal structures are reported here,Expand

The prenylated dioxopiperazine alkaloid Cristatin A has selective telomeric DNA G-quadruplex stabilising properties.
Cristatin A (1a/b), a prenylated dioxopiperazine alkaloid, has been shown to bind selectively to telomeric quadruplex DNA using a FRET-based DNA melting assay. Crucially, the molecule is moreExpand
