Target-guided synthesis is an approach to drug discovery that allows the target to self-assemble its own binding agents. So far, target-guided synthesis and especially in situ click chemistry have attracted extensive attention and have led to the identification of highly potent inhibitors for proteins. In this study, we expand the application of in situ(More)
A novel 2,4,5-triaryl-substituted imidazole (IZCM-1) has been found to display distinct and specific fluorescence enhancement upon binding to parallel G-quadruplexes. Such a sensitive and topology-specific probe is able to light up without affecting the topology or thermal stability of the G-quadruplex sample. Thus, these advantages distinguish IZCM-1 from(More)
IZNP-1 Multiple G-quadruplex units in the 3΄-terminal overhang of human telomeric DNA can associate and form multimeric structures. The specific targeting of such distinctive higher-order G-quadruplexes might be a promising strategy for developing selective anticancer agents with fewer side effects. However, thus far, only a few molecules were found to(More)
