Chemically separating chromatin damaging from DNA damaging activities in doxorubicin for detoxification and better anti-cancer responses

Author£ºProf. Jacques Neefjes
Date£º10:00AM, Sep 17th£¨Tuesday), 2019

The anthracycline doxorubicin (Doxo) is one of the most effective and commonly used anti-cancer drugs. However, its clinical application is limited by severe side effects, such as cardiotoxicity, therapy-related tumors and infertility. Doxo induces both DNA damage through double-strand breaks and chromatin damage through histone eviction. We examined ...Read more
