Abstract: Ribonucleotide reductase (RR; EC 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…
