Conformational analogues of Oxamflatin as histone deacetylase inhibitors Academic Article uri icon


  • Conformational analogues of the hydroxamic acid Oxamflatin compounds, have been synthesised to enable evaluation of the impact of varying the linking section on histone deacetylase inhibition. Preliminary testing indicates treatment of leukaemia cells with each of the analogues leads to significant inhibition of histone deacetylase and reduction in cell growth and proliferation.
