Antimicrobial agents are currently the mainstay of treatment for bacterial infections worldwide. However, due to the increased use of antimicrobials in both human and animal medicine, pathogens have now evolved to possess high levels of multi-drug resistance, leading to the persistence and spread of difficult-to-treat infections.

Topoisomerase II (topo II) inhibitors are commonly used as chemotherapy to treat multiple types of cancer, though their use is also associated with the development of therapy related acute leukemias. While the chromosome-damaging effects of etoposide, a topo II poison, have been proposed to act through a threshold mechanism, little is known about t...

The complete NMR signal assignment of title compounds were carried out by extensive use of 1D and 2D NMR techniques (1H, 13C, COSY, HSQC and HMBC).
An antitumor drug N-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]acridine-4-carboxamide (DACA) and its three close structural analogs N-[2-(hydroxyethylamino)ethyl]acridine-4-carboxamide (DACAH), N-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-9-aminoacridine-4-carboxamide (amino-DACA), and N-[2-(hydroxyethylamino)ethyl]-9-aminoacridine-4-carboxamide (amino-DACAH) were studied for their ab...
