"The inhibition of cell proliferation by 1,4-bis (1-naphthyl)-2,3-dinitro-1,3-butadiene (Naph-DNB) was evaluated in vitro against 4 cell lines (L1210/DDP, A2780/ DX3, HCT-8/FU7dR, A549-T12) selected for their resistance to cisplatin, doxorubicin, 5-fluorouracil and taxol, and their wild-type counterparts.
"Naph-DNB is a novel anti-cancer compound obtained years ago within a research project of Organic Chemistry aimed at synthesizing 2,3-dinitrobutadiene derivatives. Because of its chemical structure, Naph-DNB was suggested to interact with nucleic acids, in particular DNA,...
