The use of dendritic cells (DC) for the development of therapeutic cancer vaccines is attractive because of their unique ability to present tumor epitopes via the MHC class I pathway to induce cytotoxic CD8+ T lymphocyte responses. C-Type membrane lectins, DC-SIGN and the mannose receptor (MR), present on the DC surface, recognize oligosaccharides(More)
Two types of benzimidazoles have been synthesized and linked to DC-81 at C8-position through different alkyl chain spacers. These PBD conjugates have exhibited remarkable DNA-binding affinity, and a representative compound shows promising in vitro anticancer activity.
New sequence selective mixed imine-amide pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD) dimers have been developed that are comprised of DC-81 and dilactam of DC-81 subunits tethered to their C8 positions through alkanedioxy linkers (comprised of three to five and eight carbons). Thermal denaturation studies show that after 18 h of incubation with calf thymus DNA at a 5:1(More)
The design and facile synthesis of C-8 alkylamino substituted pyrrolo[2,1-c][1,4]benzodiazepines is described. These have been prepared by linking the amines at C-8 position with propane spacer to improve solubility in water, and their in vitro cytotoxicity studies have been carried out.
Pyrrolobenzodiazepine-diethylphosphonate conjugates have been designed and synthesized that link through two different types of spacers that are simple alkane chain and also a piperazine moiety side-armed with the alkane chains. These pyrrolobenzodiazepine conjugates have exhibited remarkable DNA-binding affinity and improved solubility in water, a(More)
The synthesis of novel A-C8/C-C2-exo unsaturated alkoxyamido-linked pyrrolo[2,1-c][1,4]benzodiazepine dimers is reported and these dimers show significant DNA binding affinity and they also exhibit moderate anticancer activity.
