A series of bay-substituted perylene derivatives is reported as a new class of G-quadruplex ligands. The synthesized compounds have differing N-cyclic substituents on the bay area and differing side chains on the perylene major axis. ESI-MS and FRET measurements highlighted the strongest quadruplex binders in this series and those showing the highest(More)
Based on previous work on both perylene and coronene derivatives as G-quadruplex binders, a novel chimeric compound was designed: N,N'-bis[2-(1-piperidino)-ethyl]-1-(1-piperidinyl)-6-[2-(1-piperidino)-ethyl]-benzo[ghi]perylene-3,4:9,10-tetracarboxylic diimide (EMICORON), having one piperidinyl group bound to the perylene bay area (positions 1, 12 and 6, 7(More)
