T-DM1 not superior to taxane in HER-2–positive gastric, GE junction cancer
Trastuzumab emtansine, or “T-DM1, is an antibody drug conjugate of DM1 linked by a stable thioether to trastuzumab,” Yoon-Koon Kang, MD, PhD, from the department of oncology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine in Seoul, ...
Comparison of carbon-sulfur and carbon-amine bond in therapeutic drug: 4β-S
Because the electronegativity of the sulfur atom was lower than that of the nitrogen atom, the hydrophobic thioether bond (-S-) is better than imino bond (-NH-) to improve the cellular uptake of the compounds which may enhance their biological activity.
Make better PEG hydrogels with help from silk fibroin
The obtained network is thus composed of non-degradable linear polymer chains, hydrolytically labile thioether ester bonds, and embedded with silk fibrillar matrices.
Redox-induced actuation in macromolecular and self-assembled systems
The authors attributed this conformational change between α-helix and random coil to the transformation of the thioether groups to polar sulfones, which may cause the destabilization of the α-helix.
Better batteries with organic polymer cathodes
The group from AIST, Japan, has successfully achieved this by developing insoluble polymer PBQS, based on benzoquinone (BQ) – which has high redox potential (2.5-3.0 V vs Li+/Li) and high theoretical capacity (496 mA h g-1) – units with thioether ...
