Doxorubicin, a widely used anthracycline anticancer agent, acts as a topoisomerase II poison but can also form formaldehyde-mediated DNA adducts. This has led to the development of doxorubicin derivatives such as doxoform, which can readily form adducts with DNA. This work aimed to determine which DNA repair pathways are involved in the recognition and(More)
The synthesis and tumor cell growth inhibition by doxazolidine carbamate prodrugs are reported. The carbamates were designed for selective hydrolysis by one or more human carboxylesterases to release doxazolidine (Doxaz), the formaldehyde-oxazolidine of doxorubicin that cross-links DNA to trigger cell death. Simple butyl and pentyl, but not ethyl, carbamate(More)
We report the first vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) measurement of spatial heterogeneity in a sample using infrared (IR) microsampling. Vibrational circular dichroism spectra are typically measured using a standard IR cell with an IR beam diameter of 10 mm or greater making it impossible to investigate the spatial heterogeneity of a solid film sample.(More)
