Tool Details

  • Tool name: Antitumoral Quinol2 Small Molecule (Tool Compound)
  • Molecular formula: C13H9NO2S
  • Tool type: Small molecules
  • Description: The antitumoral Quinol2, also known as PMX464, is a potent in vitro antitumour activity was observed in HCT 116 and HT 29 human colon as well in as MCF-7 and MDA 468 human breast cancer cell lines. This molecule also showed in vivo antitumour activity against human RXF 944XL renal xenografts in nude NMRI mice.A new class of molecule (4-hydroxy-4-hetarylcyclohexa-2,5-dien-1-ones) bearing a new pharmacophore (quinols') has been identified with potent activity against renal, colon and breast cell lines in the NCI 60-cell panel. It also demonstrates potent in vitro anti-proliferative activity and in vivo anti-tumour activity in tumour xenografts
