PNU-159682 is a bioactive metabolite of Nemorubicin. It is approximately 3,000-fold more toxic than doxorubicin. The antitumor anthracycline nemorubicin is converted by human liver microsomes to a major metabolite, PNU-159682 (PNU). The mechanism of action of nemorubicin appears different from other anthracyclines and until now is the object of studies. In fact PNU is deemed to play a dominant, but still unclear, role in the in vivo antitumor activity of nemorubicin. PNU-159682, a metabolite of the anthracycline Nemorubicin, is a highly potent DNA topoisomerase II inhibitor with excellent cytotoxicity. Potential mode of action/Key words: Targeting DNA, DNA alkylating, Cytotoxic, Antitumoral
