Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Walker tumour cells were shown to be uniquely sensitive to CB 1954 when compared with other cells in vitro. CB 1954 forms DNA-DNA interstrand crosslinks in a time-dependent manner in Walker tumour but not Chinese hamster cells. The absence of interstrand crosslinks in hamster cells was not due to a lack of uptake of drug but rather to a failure to convert (probably by bioreduction) CB 1954 to the required reactive difunctional intermediate.
