Daunorubicin Hydrochloride - Pharmacology:

Daunorubicin Hydrochloride has antimitotic and cytotoxic activity through a number of proposed mechanisms of action: Daunorubicin Hydrochloride forms complexes with DNA by intercalation between base pairs, and it inhibits topoisomerase II activity by stabilizing the DNA-topoisomerase II complex, preventing the religation portion of the ligation-religation reaction that topoisomerase II catalyzes.
