DNA polymerase beta (pol β) inhibitors: a comprehensive overview.

Abstract:

Base excision repair (BER) is the fundamental pathway responsible for the elimination of damaged DNA bases and repair of DNA single-strand breaks generated spontaneously or produced by DNA-damaging agents. Among the essential enzymes that are required to achieve the BER reaction is DNA polymerase beta (pol β), which has been regarded as a potential therapeutic target. More than 60 pol β-inhibitors have been identified so far; however, most of them are either not potent or not specific enough to become a drug. In this article we compile an essential knowledge base regarding the structures, the modes of inhibition and the activities of these pharmacologically interesting molecules.

Sorting:

Tables may be sorted by clicking on any of the column titles. A second click reverses the sort order. <Ctrl> + click on the column titles to sort by more than one column (e.g. family then name).

Filtering:

It is also possible to filter the table by typing into the search box above the table. This will instantly hide lines from the table that do not contain your search text.
