Equilibrium shift by target DNA substrates for determination of DNA binding ligands.

An equilibrium containing the thiol derivative of Hoechst33258 (Ht-SH), glutathione (G-SH), and the corresponding homo and hetero disulfides was shifted by the addition of the duplex DNA. It was shown from the analysis of the components that the hetero disulfide Ht-SS-G increased by binding with the DNA (CA14) with an A(3)T(3) binding motif for the… CONTINUE READING
