Generation of a novel anti-geldanamycin antibody.


Geldanamycin (GA) and herbimycin A are benzoquinone ansamycins (BAs) that inhibit the molecular chaperone HSP90. The central role of HSP90 in maintaining the conformation, stability, and function of key oncogenic proteins involved in signal transduction pathways renders BAs attractive candidates for clinical development. Two GA derivatives, 17-allylamino-17… (More)
