Biological Activity for Floxuridine
Floxuridine is an antineoplastic antimetabolite. Exhibits antiproliferative activity; inhibits thymidylate synthetase and disrupts DNA replication in human cells. Induces double-strand DNA breaks; activates ATR and ATM signaling pathways. Induces phosphorylation of Chk1 and Chk2 in OVCAR-8 and SKOV3ip ovarian cancer cell lines.

Cancer Metabolism Poster
Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the main targets for cancer metabolism researchers. Genetic changes and epigenetic modifications in cancer cells alter the regulation of cellular metabolic pathways. These distinct metabolic circuits could provide viable cancer therapeutic targets.
Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
