 Project objective

Designed, bulky metal complexes with a labile coordination position react with accessible guanines at G4 DNA quadruplexes, promoting changes in their conformation and function. Importantly, we have found that this selective reactivity leads to very interesting biological effects. In particular, some of these compounds are able to suppress the “stem”-like character of cancer stem cells, apparently by deterring their mitochondrial respiration. Preliminary experiments, including in vivo assays, confirm that these biological effects result in remarkable antitumoral activities. This proposal aims to explore the scope of the approach, confirm that the mechanism of action involves mitochondria, design more selective versions and exploit the potential of the compounds as new type of anticancer agents.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "ANTICSC" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.

The information about "ANTICSC" are provided by the European Opendata Portal: CORDIS opendata.
