Cisplatin adducts in DNA: distortion and recognition


 cis-Diamminedichloroplatinum (II) (cisplatin) and derivatives are very successful anticancer chemotherapeutic agents. They crosslink cellular DNA, forming bifunctional adducts with the N7 of guanine bases. In this review, recent structures of cisplatin adducts are summarised, and the significance for the recognition of DNA structure by proteins is… (More)
