Synthesis and evaluation of [14C]-labelled and fluorescent-tagged paclitaxel derivatives as new biological probes.


Our present report deals with the preparation of hitherto unreported 7-([carbonyl-14C]-acetyl)paclitaxel 4 and two new bioactive 7-substituted fluorescent taxoids (FITC 9 and rhodamine 11), as well as evaluation towards their applications as biological probes. The results in this report demonstrate that (a) the new paclitaxel derivatives 4, 9, 11 could be… (More)
