Abstract

The inhibition of the oncogenic variants of Ras proteins represents an interesting and promising research field for the development of new anticancer therapies. During this thesis several important data were collected in order to clarify the structure activity relationship in Ras-inhibitors. Then new lead compounds derived from natural carbohydrates were designed and synthesized following a rational drug design approach. These original water-soluble molecules were investigated for the biological activity point of view; in addition the binding to human Ras was fully investigated, identifying the ligand-Ras binding interface.
