In this paper we report the design and biophysical evaluation of novel rigid-core symmetric and asymmetric dicationic DNA binders containing 9H-fluorene and 9,10-dihydroanthracene cores as well as the synthesis of one of these fluorene derivatives. First, the affinity toward particular DNA sequences of these compounds and flexible core derivatives was(More)
Considering the strong DNA minor groove binding observed for our previous series of diaromatic symmetric and asymmetric guanidinium and 2-aminoimidazolinium derivatives, we report now the synthesis of new aminoalkyl derivatives of diaromatic guanidines with potential as DNA minor groove binders and antiprotozoal activity. The preparation of these aminoalkyl(More)
