The final therapeutic effect of a drug candidate, which is directed to a specific molecular target strongly depends on its absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME). The disruption of at least one element of ADME may result in serious drug resistance. In this work we described the role of one element of this resistance: phase II metabolism with UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs). UGT function is the transformation...
Modulation of UDP-glucuronidation by acridinone antitumor agents C-1305 and C-1311 in HepG2 and HT29 cell lines, despite slight impact in noncellular systems.
Background Among the studied antitumor acridinone derivatives developed in our laboratory, 5-dimethylaminopropylamino-8-hydroxytriazoloacridinone (C-1305) and 5-diethylaminoethylamino-8-hydroxyimidazoacridinone (C-1311) exhibited cytotoxic and antitumor properties against several cancer types and were selected to be evaluated in preclinical and early-phase clinical trials. In the present work, we investigated the impact of C-1305...
Quantum dots conjugates with unsymmetrical bisacridines enhance cytotoxicity of these antitumor compounds in lung cancer cells and have protecting effects on normal cells
Background: In recent years, with the rapid development of nanotechnology and its extensive applications in the medicine, nanocarriers for anticancer drug delivery have gained a great importance. Spherical semiconductor nanocrystals, frequently called quantum dots (QDs) are very attractive nanomaterials for bioimaging applications and they possess properties as potential candidates for drug carrier. Unsymmetrical bisacridines (UAs),...
