Benzimidazole- and benzothiazole-quinones: excellent substrates for NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase 1

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of benzimidazole- and benzothiazole-quinones has been synthesized. The ability of these heterocyclic quinones to act as substrates for recombinant human NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1), a two-electron reductase upregulated in tumour cells, was determined. Overall, the quinones were excellent substrates for NQO1.
