Studies of natural products that reveal novel strategies for efficient modification of DNA
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
DNA is the central molecule in cells. The correct function of cells depends on the structure of DNA. DNA damaging natural products often show cytotoxic or mutagenic properties, which many times land them medicinal value ...
Novel chemical mechanisms of DNA damage by natural products
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Leinamycin is a structurally novel natural product isolated from the streptomyces with potent ant tumor and antibiotic activity. In a thiol rich ...
Investigations into the chemistry of protein tyrosine phosphatase redox regulation
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
Transmission of complex intracellular signals, such as those for glucose uptake or proliferation, is often accomplished through the reversible phosphorylation of specific protein tyrosine residues. This reversible ...
Biologically relevant chemistry of sulfur heterocycles: from redox regulation of PTP1B to the biological activity of s-deoxy leinamycin
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
Protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) is an important member of protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTPs) family that shares a conserved catalytic cysteine thiol residue. PTP1B acts as a negative regulator of insulin mediated ...
