Article Title: Synthesis of novel fluorescent probes for the molecular chaperone Hsp90
Abstract: Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is a molecular chaperone necessary for maintaining oncogenic transformation. There is substantial interest in developing novel agents that bind to the N-terminal of the chaperone. Here we report the synthesis and characterization of two fluorescent Hsp90 inhibitors and probe their use in an Hsp90 fluorescent polarization assay. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
