Description
OverviewA cell-permeable aminothiophosphate pro-drug that offers selective protection in many normal, but not in tumor, tissues against the toxic side-effects of radiation and cytotoxic drugs. Its cytoprotective activities have been attributed to its free radical scavenging properties of its active thiol metabolite, WR-1065. The critical step in its activation is its interaction with alkaline phosphatase that is differentially distributed in normal and neoplastic cells. A strong inducer of hypoxia-inducible factor-α1 (HIF-α1) and p53. Shown to reduce PARP proteolysis and levels of active caspase-3 in irradiated mouse ovaries.
