In vitro anticancer properties and biological evaluation of novel natural alkaloid jerantinine B (2015)
Journal Article
Qazzaz, M. E., Raja, V. J., Lim, K., Kam, T., Lee, J. B., Gershkovich, P., & Bradshaw, T. D. (2016). In vitro anticancer properties and biological evaluation of novel natural alkaloid jerantinine B. Cancer Letters, 370(2), doi:10.1016/j.canlet.2015.10.013

Natural products play a pivotal role in medicine especially in the cancer arena. Many drugs that are currently used in cancer chemotherapy originated from or were inspired by nature. Jerantinine B (JB) is one of seven novel Aspidosperma indole alkalo... Read More about In vitro anticancer properties and biological evaluation of novel natural alkaloid jerantinine B.

Asymmetric pentafulvene carbometalation-access to enantiopure titanocene dichlorides of biological relevance (2015)
Journal Article
Cini, M., Bradshaw, T. D., Woodward, S., & Lewis, W. (2015). Asymmetric pentafulvene carbometalation-access to enantiopure titanocene dichlorides of biological relevance. Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 54(47), doi:10.1002/anie.201508034

Unprecedented asymmetric copper-catalyzed addition of ZnEt2 (ZnBu2) to the exocyclic C[DOUBLE BOND]C bond of pentafulvenes C5H4([DOUBLE BOND]CHAr) (Ar=2-MeOPh and related species) results in enantiomerically enriched (up to 93:7 e.r.) cyclopentadieny...

Antitumour benzothiazoles. Part 32: DNA adducts and double strand breaks correlate with activity; synthesis of 5F203 hydrogels for local delivery (2015)
Journal Article
Stone, E. L., Citossi, F., Singh, R., Kaur, B., Gaskell, M., Farmer, P. B., …Bradshaw, T. D. (2015). Antitumour benzothiazoles. Part 32: DNA adducts and double strand breaks correlate with activity; synthesis of 5F203 hydrogels for local delivery. Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry, 23(21), 6891-6899. doi:10.1016/j.bmc.2015.09.052

Potent, selective antitumour AhR ligands 5F 203 and GW 610 are bioactivated by CYPs 1A1 and 2W1. Herein we reason that DNA adducts’ generation resulting in lethal DNA double strand breaks (DSBs) underlies benzothiazoles’ activity. Treatment of sensit... Read More about Antitumour benzothiazoles.
