DNA-binding affinities and sequence specificities of protoberberine alkaloids and their demethylated derivatives: a comparative study.

Abstract

Berberrubine (1a), jatrorubine (2a), and palmatrubine (3a) have been chemically prepared by partial demethylation of berberine (1), jatrorrhizine (2), and palmatine (3), respectively. Their interactions with calf thymus (CT) DNA, poly(dA-dT)poly(dA-dT), poly(dG-dC)poly(dG-dC), and eight AT-rich 12-mer double-stranded DNAs have been investigated by means of… (More)
