Moguntinones – a novel class of kinase inhibitors for cancer therapy

12.03.2015

Moguntinones, a class of small molecule compounds comprise 3-(indolyl)- or 3-(azaindolyl)-4-arylmaleimide derivatives with tumor and vascular targeting properties. The present invention relates to the use of Moguntinones for treatment of colorectal or gastric adenocarcinoma. Tumor growth and metastasis are highly associated with the overexpression of protein kinases. Therefore protein kinases are an interesting class of target molecules for improved therapeutic attempts. These proteins are known to regulate the majority of cellular pathways including such relevant for control cell growth, movement and death - all processes relevant for cancer growth and progression. A physiological process focused on in development of anti-cancer agents is apoptosis, a controlled form of cell death eliminating damaged, aberrant, infected, old or superfluous cells. In particular often mucosa tissue such as gastrointestinal mucosa is characterized by a rapid epithelial cell turnover in which homeostasis is maintained predominantly by apoptosis. One essential prerequisite for growth and metastasis of cancers which form tumors is angiogenesis, a process involving the formation of new blood vessels from pre-existing capillary endothelial cells. Tumor cells may enhance angiogenesis by overexpression of proangiogenic factors, e.g. VEGF or interleukins. In general, this is especially pronounced with tumors having a high microvessel density as well as a particular aggressive behavior and high tendency to metastasize. Therefore, inhibitors of angiogenesis are researched as antitumor agents. [Ref. UMZ252]

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
