Cheung-Ong K, et al. (2012) Comparative chemogenomics to examine the mechanism of action of dna-targeted platinum-acridine anticancer agents. ACS Chem Biol 7(11):1892-901
Abstract: Platinum-based drugs have been used to successfully treat diverse cancers for several decades. Cisplatin, the original compound of this class, cross-links DNA, resulting in cell cycle arrest and cell death via apoptosis. Cisplatin is effective against several tumor types, yet it exhibits toxic side effects and tumors often develop resistance. To mitigate these liabilities while maintaining potency, we generated a library of non-classical platinum-acridine hybrid agents and assessed their mechanisms of action using a validated genome-wide screening approach in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and in the distantly related yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Chemogenomic profiles from both S. cerevisiae and S. pombe demonstrate that several of the platinum-acridines damage DNA differently than cisplatin based on their requirement for distinct modules of DNA repair.
