Anisomycin, a Protein Synthesis Inhibitor, also Interferes DNA Synthesis

Protein synthesis is a core biological process, which balances the loss of cellular proteins by producing new proteins. Specifically, proteins perform many key functions as enzymes, structural proteins, or hormones. Besides, protein synthesis includes two stages – transcription and translation. During transcription, a DNA fragment encoding a protein is...

Daunorubicin is a Topoisomerase II Inhibitor with potent Antineoplastic Activities

Topoisomerases are enzymes that regulate the overwinding or underwinding of DNA. The winding problem of DNA arises due to the intertwined nature of its double-helical structure. Topoisomerases are isomerase enzymes that act on the topology of DNA. Type I topoisomerase cuts one strand of a DNA double helix, relaxation...
