Computational design, synthesis and biological evaluation of para-quinone-based inhibitors for redox regulation of the dual-specificity phosphatase Cdc25B.


Journal Article

Quinoid inhibitors of Cdc25B were designed based on the Linear Combination of Atomic Potentials (LCAP) methodology. In contrast to a published hypothesis, the biological activities and hydrogen peroxide generation in reducing media of three synthetic models did not correlate with the quinone half-wave potential, E(1/2).
