The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) binding characteristics of adriamycin and several new anthracycline glycosides, including marcellomycin, aclacinomycin, rudolfomycin, musettamycin, and pyrromycin, have been studied. The fluorescence spectra were determined for all six anthracyclines, and the fluorescence quenching effects caused by interactions with the natural DNAs poly(dAdT)--poly(dAdT) and poly(dGdC) were characterized. Binding parameters were determined by Scatchard analyses of results… CONTINUE READING
