Irreversible binding of an anticancer compound (BI-94) to plasma proteins.


1. We investigated the mechanisms responsible for the in vivo instability of a benzofurazan compound BI-94 (NSC228148) with potent anti-cancer activity. 2. BI-94 was stable in MeOH, water, and in various buffers at pHs 2.5-5, regardless of the buffer composition. In contrast, BI-94 was unstable in NaOH and at pHs 7-9, regardless of the buffer composition… (More)
