REVIEW
K Ghoshal, S T Jacob
It is assumed that the primary mode of action of 5-fluorouracil (5-FUra) is mediated via inhibition of thymidylate synthetase. Persistent inhibition of cellular proliferation after treatment of the 5-FUra-inhibited cells with exogenous thymidine do not support the notion that the anti-proliferitive action of 5-FUra is due exclusively to inhibition of DNA replication. Our studies have revealed an alternative mechanism of action at the level of pre-ribosomal RNA (pre-rRNA) processing. Pre-rRNA processing was inhibited completely in vitro as well as in S-100 extract from the mouse lymphosarcoma P1798 cells that were treated with 5-FUra...
