Abstract:Ribonucleotide reductase (RR; EC 126.96.36.199) is responsible for the de novo conversion of ribonucleoside diphosphates into deoxyribonucleoside diphosphates, which are essential for DNA replication. RR is upregulated in tumor cells and therefore considered to be an excellent target for cancer chemotherapy. ABNM-13 (N-hydroxy-2-(anthracene-2-yl-methylene)-hydrazinecarboximidamide), a novel N-hydroxy-N'-aminoguanidine has been designed to inhibit RR activity using 3D molecular space modeling techniques. In this stu…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
