TLDR
A list of 37 anticancer drugs with reported carcinogenicity or co‐carcinogenicity has been compiled, and most of these drugs react with DNA, and the ultimate reactive forms of the drugs are electrophiles.
Synthesis of Several N-Haloacyl Analogs of α,α-Diphenyl-4-piperidinemethanol as Potential Antineoplastic Agents
Eight new derivatives of α,α -diphenyl-4-piperidinemethanol have been prepared to evaluate their anticarcinogenic activity: 1 -(3-chloropropionyl)- α,α -diphenyl-4-piperidinemethanol,

Using the technic of measuring the incorporation of formate carbon into nucleic acid purines of control and treated mice, data have been obtained which indicate that 2,6-diaminopurine, 8-azaguanine,
CRYSTALLINE DESOXYRIBONUCLEASE: I. ISOLATION AND GENERAL PROPERTIES SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC METHOD FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF DESOXYRIBONUCLEASE ACTIVITY
TLDR
A crystalline enzyme capable of digesting thymus nucleic acid (desoxyribonucleic acid) has been isolated from fresh beef pancreas and the spectrophotometric measurement of the rate of increase in the light absorption can be conveniently used as a general method for estimating desoxy ribonuclease activity.
INACTIVATION OF VIRUSES AND CELLS BY MUSTARD GAS
TLDR
Preparations of the pneumococcus-transforming principle which were largely desoxyribose nucleic acid have shown the greatest sensitivity to mustard gas of all systems examined.
