Terms & Properties

Preferred Name: Bizelesin

Definition: A synthetic cyclopropylpyrroloindole antineoplastic antibiotic. Bizelesin binds to the minor groove of DNA and induces interstrand cross-linking of DNA, thereby inhibiting DNA replication and RNA synthesis. Bizelesin also enhances p53 and p21 induction and triggers G2/M cell-cycle arrest, resulting in cell senescence without apoptosis. (NCI04)

NCI-GLOSS Definition: An anticancer drug that belongs to the family of drugs called alkylating agents. It is also an antitumor antibiotic.
