DNA Cross Linkers
These compounds cause DNA interstrand crosslinks that include natural alkylating agents such as mitomycin C or synthetic agents, such as platinum compounds. These DNA lesions, if left unrepaired, lead to disruption of DNA replication and transcription and therefore have genotoxic and cytotoxic consequences. DNA cross linkers thus have therapeutic applications in treating solid tumors, as well as autoimmune diseases and dermatological conditions. The DNA cross linkers available from Biosynth Carbosynth are listed below.
