Novobiocin Analogs as Potential Anticancer Agents.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The aminocoumarin antibiotic, novobiocin, is a natural product that inhibits DNA gyrase, a bacterial enzyme involved in cell division. METHOD More recently, novobiocin was found to act also on eukaryotic cells by blocking the 90 kDa heat shock protein (Hsp90). Hsp90 is a molecular chaperone, critical for folding, stabilization and activation of… (More)
