Application

Hydroxyurea has been used:
  • for cell cycle synchronization in MCF-7 human breast carcinoma cells, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, primary root of seedling
  • as a drug for treating the parasite Leishmania mexicana in cell viability and cell cycle assay
  • as an inhibitor in the cell adhesion and motility assay in Caki control and CD9 knockdown cells

Packaging

Biochem/physiol Actions

Anti-neoplastic. Inactivates ribonucleoside reductase by forming a free radical nitroxide that binds a tyrosyl free radical in the active site of the enzyme. This blocks the synthesis of deoxynucleotides, which inhibits DNA synthesis and induces synchronization or cell death in S-phase.
