BACKGROUND/AIM One mechanism of the anticancer action of anthracyclines is believed to be oxidative DNA damage. Previously, we reported that doxorubicin induced oxidative DNA damage in the presence of Cu(II). However, the mechanism of pirarubicin-induced oxidative DNA damage has not been well clarified. MATERIALS AND METHODS DNA damage by pirarubicin in the presence of Cu(II) was analyzed using pBR322 plasmid DNA. O2•- derived from pirarubicin in the presence of Cu(II) was detected by… Expand

Idarubicin, an Anthracycline, Induces Oxidative DNA Damage in the Presence of Copper (II)
Since it has been reported that the concentration of copper in the serum of cancer patients is higher than that in healthy groups, IDR-induced oxidative DNA damage in the presence of copper (II) may play an important role in anticancer therapeutic strategies. Expand
Oxidative DNA Damage and Apoptosis Induced by Aclarubicin, an Anthracycline: Role of Hydrogen Peroxide and Copper
ACR-induced DNA damage and apoptosis can be accounted for by the involvement of H2O2 and Cu(I). Expand
Free radical induced activity of an anthracycline analogue and its MnII complex on biological targets through in situ electrochemical generation of semiquinone
Cytotoxicity by anthracycline antibiotics is attributed to several pathways. Important among them are formation of free-radical intermediates. However, their generation makes anthracyclinesExpand
