The inhibition of Rauscher leukemia virus and avian myeloblastosis virus DNA polymerases by anthracycline compounds.

Abstract

Studies by other investigators have shown that adriamycin and daunorubicin exhibit antitumor and antiviral activity. A possible antiviral mechanism for the anthracycline compounds is the potent inhibition of viral DNA polymerases. Five anthracycline compounds were tested against purified Rauscher leukemia virus and avian myeloblastosis virus DNA polymerases… (More)
