A Novel Triazole Nucleoside Suppresses Prostate Cancer Cell Growth by Inhibiting Heat Shock Factor 1 and Androgen Receptor.

Author information

Innovative Drug Research Centre, Chongqing University, Chongqing, China.


A novel triazole nucleoside analogue was discovered to exhibit potent anticancer activity in prostate cancer cells via down-regulating heat shock factor 1 (HSF1) and related heat shock proteins, along with the consequential inhibition of androgen receptor (AR) expression and transactivation, arresting the cell cycle in AR-governed phase. This triazole nucleoside therefore constitutes a novel structural paradigm and potential drug candidate for prostate cancer through inhibition of HSF1 and AR.
