Molecular Strategies of Deoxynucleotide Triphosphate Supply Inhibition Used in the Treatment of Gynecologic Malignancies

Charles A. Kunos and Tomas Radivoyevitch

Chemotherapies targeting deoxynucleotide triphosphate synthesis are of high medical interest in the treatment of gynecologic malignancies. In this article, we focus on targeted inhibitors of ribonucleotide reductase, an enzyme in charge of ribonucleotide reduction to their corresponding deoxyribonucleotide to be used as the building blocks of DNA. We also discuss human clinical trials have utilized ribonucleotide reductase subunit-specific inhibitors, particularly trials for women with cervical cancer.
