NSC 613862 (S)-(-) and NSC 613863 (R)-(+) are the two chiral isomers of ethyl-5-amino-2-methyl-1,2-dihydro-3-phenylpyrido[3, 4-b]pyrazin-7-yl carbamate. Both compounds bind to tubulin in a region that overlaps the colchicine site. They induce formation of abnormal polymers from purified GTP-Mg-tubulin, the active assembly form of tubulin, in glycerol-free buffer with magnesium [De Ines, C., Leynadier, D., Barasoain, I., Peyrot, V., Garcia, P., Briand, C., Rener, G.
