Selective ALDH3A1 Inhibition by Benzimidazole Analogues Increase Mafosfamide Sensitivity in Cancer Cells

Aldehyde dehydrogenase enzymes irreversibly oxidize aldehydes generated from metabolism of amino acids, fatty acids, food, smoke, additives, and xenobiotic drugs. Cyclophosphamide is one such xenobiotic used in cancer therapies. Upon activation, cyclophosphamide forms an intermediate, aldophosphamide, which can be detoxified to carboxyphosphamide by… CONTINUE READING
