Journal Article
Mathur, S., Turnbull, A., Akaev, I., Stevens, C., Agrawal, N., Chopra, M., & Mincher, D. (in press)
Design of a New Peptide Substrate Probe of the Putative Biomarker Legumain with Potential Application in Prostate Cancer Diagnosis ex vivo. International Journal of Peptide Research and Therapeutics, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10989-019-09994-1
The lysosomal endoprotease legumain (asparaginyl endoprotease) has been proposed as a putative biomarker in prostate tumours, in which the enzyme is markedly overexpressed. Ov...

Development of mitochondria- and protease-specific prodrugs in the potential treatment of parasitic helminth infections

Presentation / Conference
Oluwadare, E., Rehan, A., Ding, Y., Turnbull, A., Malone, E., Mincher, D., & Proudfoot, L. (2016, September)
Development of mitochondria- and protease-specific prodrugs in the potential treatment of parasitic helminth infections. Poster presented at Molecular & Cellular Biology of Helminth Parasites X, Hydra, Greece
Anthelmintic resistance and the shortage of new drugs represent an urgent need for the development of novel anti-parasite drugs with effective delivery to the target site. Red...

Design and evaluation of novel theranostic fluorogenic dual probe-prodrug in cancer

Journal Article
Mathur, S., Mincher, D., Turnbull, A., Stevens, C., & Poole, A. (2016)
Design and evaluation of novel theranostic fluorogenic dual probe-prodrug in cancer. European Journal of Cancer, 61, S142. https://doi.org/10.1016/s0959-8049%2816%2961501-0
Background: In spite of major advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, there remains a paucity of biomarkers for early detection. Legumain is a potential cancer biom...

Journal Article
Dias, N., Goossens, J., Baldeyrou, B., Lansiaux, A., Colson, P., Di Salvo, A., …Bailly, C. (2005)
Oxoazabenzo[de]anthracenes conjugated to Amino Acids: Synthesis and evaluation as DNA-binding antitumor agents. Bioconjugate Chemistry. 16, 949 - 958. doi:10.1021/bc050065x. ISSN 1043-1802
We report the synthesis of an original series of oxoazabenzo[de]anthracenes conjugated to an amino acid: Ala, Phe, Pro, Lys, or Gly (4a-e, respectively). The compounds, derive...

Anthracene derivatives as anti-cancer agents.

Patent
Mincher, D. & Turnbull, A. (2004)
Anthracene derivatives as anti-cancer agents.
The present invention relates to compounds which are based on an anthraquinone nucleus for use in medicine, particularly as anti-cancer agents which exert their effects throug...
