Keinan, S; Paquette, WD; Skoko, JJ; Beratan, DN; Yang, W; Shinde, S; Johnston, PA; Lazo, JS; Wipf, P, Computational design, synthesis and biological evaluation of para-quinone-based inhibitors for redox regulation of the dual-specificity phosphatase Cdc25B., Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry, vol. 6 no. 18 (September, 2008), pp. 3256-3263(Cover Article.) [18802630], [doi] .

    Quinoid inhibitors of Cdc25B were designed based on the Linear Combination of Atomic Potentials (LCAP) methodology. In contrast to a published hypothesis, the biological activities and hydrogen peroxide generation in reducing media of three synthetic models did not correlate with the quinone half-wave potential, E(1/2).
