Abstract

Amphiphilic anticancer prodrugs of 5'-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine-5'-monophosphate (5-FdUMP) were synthesized according to the hydrogen phosphonate method by coupling lipophilic cytosine derivatives or a phospholipid with 5-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine (5-FdU). Studies within the in vitro Anticancer Screen Program of the National Cancer Institute have demonstrated high anticancer activities of the heterodinucleoside phosphates: N4-palmitoyl-2'-deoxycytidylyl-(3' --> 5')-3'-O-acetyl-5-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine (dC(pam)-5-FdU(Ac), N4-palmitoyl-2',3'-dideoxycytidylyl-(5' --> 5')-3'-O-acetyl-5-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine (ddC(pam)-(5' --> 5')-5-FdU(Ac), 5-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridylyl-(3' --> 5')-5-fluoro-N4-hexadecyl-2'-deoxycytidine (5-FdU-5-FdC(hex)), and of the new liponucleotide 1-O-octadecyl-rac-glycerylyl-(3 --> 5')-5-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine (Oct1Gro-(3 --> 5')-5-FdU). The anticancer activities of these prodrugs are comparable to those of 5-FdU and the tumor specificities are modulated by their structures. The highest cytotoxic activity being even superior to 5-FdU was expressed by the dimer 5-FdU-5-FdC(hex).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
