US Patent Number
Novel classes of inhibitors which selectively inhibit the cellular transport of normally transported substances, specifically polyamines are taught which comprise (i) polymers of the transported substance or (ii) protein or polypeptide conjugates of the transported substance. These inhibitors may be used in vitro to assess the effect of the transported substance on cellular functions and in vivo for treating disease conditions involving transport of the particular substance, e.g., a polyamine.
