Some glyoxalase I enzyme inhibitors were assayed for cytotoxic activity against L1210 leukemia and KB cells in tissue culture. Sublethal concentrations of glyoxalase inhibitor caused a 14- to 18-fold increase in methylglyoxal toxicity in L1210 cells. A probable mechanism for the cytotoxic activity of methylglyoxal is discussed.
