6- and 7-substituted 2-[2'-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-1,2-dihydro-3H-dibenz[de,h] isoquinoline-1,3-diones: synthesis, nucleophilic displacements, antitumor activity, and quantitative structure-activity
New 2-[2'-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-3H-dibenz[de,h]isoquinoline-1,3-diones with substituents at the 6- and 7-positions were prepared. Nucleophilic aromatic displacement was a key reaction in theExpand

Analogues of amonafide and azonafide with novel ring systems.
Three new types of amonafide and azonafide analogues were synthesized and screened in a panel of human solid tumor cells and murine L1210 leukemia cells. The structural types includedExpand

Preclinical antitumor activity of the azonafide series of anthracene-based DNA intercalators
The azonafides are a series of anthracene-based DNA intercalators which inhibit tumor cell growth in vitro at low nanomolar concentrations and are not affected by the multidrug resistance phenomenonExpand

Computer simulation of the binding of quinocarcin to DNA. Prediction of mode of action and absolute configuration
Computer-based models were derived for the covalent and noncovalent binding of the antitumor antibiotic quinocarcin to a representative DNA segment, d(ATGCAT)2. Expand

Structure-activity comparison of mitomycin C and mitomycin A analogues (review).
Over 600 analogues of mitomycin C (MMC) have been made in the past and more recently a number of Mitomycin A (MMA) derivatives have been prepared. Since many of the MMA type had the same organic sideExpand

1,4-disubstituted anthracene antitumor agents.
Three different types of 1,4-disubstituted anthracenes were synthesized, and their cytotoxicity in a panel of tumor cells was compared with that of the corresponding 9,10-disubstituted anthracenes.Expand
