A novel Cdk9 inhibitor preferentially targets tumor cells and synergizes with fludarabine (2013)
Journal Article
Walsby, E., Pratt, G., Shao, H., Abbas, A. Y., Fischer, P., Bradshaw, T. D., …Pepper, C. (2013). A novel Cdk9 inhibitor preferentially targets tumor cells and synergizes with fludarabine. Oncotarget, 5, 375-385

Cdk9 is a key elongation factor for RNA transcription and functions by phosphorylating the C-terminal domain of RNA polymerase II. Here we present direct evidence that cdk9 is important for cancer cell survival and describe the characterization of th...

Apoferritin-encapsulated PbS quantum dots significantly inhibit growth of colorectal carcinoma cells (2013)
Journal Article
Bradshaw, T. D., Junor, M., Patanè, A., Clarke, P., Thomas, N. R., Li, M., …Turyanska, L. (2013). Apoferritin-encapsulated PbS quantum dots significantly inhibit growth of colorectal carcinoma cells. Journal of Materials Chemistry B, 45, 6254-6260. https://doi.org/10.1039/c3tb21197e

Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is the 3rd most common cancer worldwide, thus development of novel therapeutic strategies is imperative. Herein potent, selective dose-dependent antitumor activity of horse spleen apoferritin encapsulated PbS quantum dots (...

Paramagnetic, near-infrared fluorescent Mn-doped PbS colloidal nanocrystals (2013)
Journal Article
Turyanska, L., Moro, F., Knott, A. N., Fay, M. W., Bradshaw, T. D., & Patanè, A. (2013). Paramagnetic, near-infrared fluorescent Mn-doped PbS colloidal nanocrystals. Particle and Particle Systems Characterization, 30(11), doi:10.1002/ppsc.201300184

Mn-doped PbS colloidal nanocrystals in aqueous solution are paramagnetic and optically active in the technologically important biological window between 1.2 and 0.8 μm. Cytoxicity studies show that exposure of human cell lines to the nanoparticles at... Read More about Paramagnetic, near-infrared fluorescent Mn-doped PbS colloidal nanocrystals.

Cuprate addition to a 6-substituted pentafulvene: preparation of sec-alkyl substituted titanocene dichlorides and their biological activity (2013)
Journal Article
Cini, M., Bradshaw, T. D., Lewis, W., & Woodward, S. (2013). Cuprate addition to a 6-substituted pentafulvene: preparation of sec-alkyl substituted titanocene dichlorides and their biological activity. European Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2013(19),

The copper-catalysed (10 mol-% CuBr·SMe2, CuCN·LiCl or CuI/PPh3) addition of RMgBr to the pentafulvene 1-(cyclopenta-2,4-dien-1-ylidenemethyl)-2-methoxybenzene allows the formation of cyclopentadienyl derivatives with α-CHR(2-MeOPh) sidechains (R = M...
