The synergistic effect of trimetrexate (TMTX) and sulphonamide derivatives of quinazoline on the cultured 5178Y murine leukemia cells was examined. On exposure to the slightly inhibitory concentrations of TMTX (0.1 nM) in combination with 2-desamino-2-methyl-10-propargyl-5,8-dideaza-pteroyl-sulphoglyc ine (DMPDDSF) (0.02 microM) a synergistic inhibitory(More)
Synthesis and biological evaluation are described of seven new analogues (3-9) of two potent thymidylate synthase inhibitors, 10-propargyl-5,8-dideazafolate (1) and its 2-methyl-2-deamino congener ICI 198583 (2). While the new compunds 3 and 4 were analogues of 1 and 2, respectively, containing a p-aminobenzenesulfonyl residue in place of the p-aminobenzoic(More)
Thymidylate synthases (TS) from the tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, and regenerating rat liver have been purified by means of affinity chromatography on immobilized 10-formyl-5,8-dideazafolate and concentrated on immobilized p-aminophenyl-5-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine monophosphate. Molecular weights of native TS from the tapeworm and regenerating rat liver were(More)
2-Deamino-2-methyl-N10-propargyl-5,8-dideazafolic acid (ICI 198583) is a potent inhibitor of thymidylate synthase. Its analogue, N(alpha)-[4-[N-[(3,4-dihydro-2-methyl-4-oxo-6-quinazolinyl)methyl]-N-propargylamino]phenylacetyl]-L-glutamic acid, containing p-aminophenylacetic acid residue substituting p-aminobenzoic acid residue, was synthesized. The new(More)
The effect of thymidylate synthase inhibitors, fluorodeoxyuridine (FdUrd) and its two sulphonamide derivatives was examined in the culture of murine leukemia cells -- 5178Y (parental subline) and its fluorodeoxyuridine resistant subline 5178Y/F. A synergistic effect of the antimetabolites on cell survival was observed on exposure of the culture of either(More)
Comparative studies of thymidylate synthases, isolated from the tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, and regenerating liver of its host, rat, aimed at a possibility of specific inhibition of the helminthic enzyme, are presented. While similar in structure (dimers with monomer molecular masses of 33.7 kDa and 34.9 kDa, respectively) and parameters describing(More)
