Interaction of porphyrin-containing macrotetracyclic receptor molecule with single-stranded and double-stranded polynucleotides. A photophysical study.

Abstract

Photophysical methods have been used to study the interaction with nucleic acids of a macrotetracyclic cryptand molecule, Pbiph, containing a porphyrin groups, two macrocycles, and a biphenyl bridge. Pbiph binds with a higher affinity to single-stranded polynucleotides than to double-stranded ones. This selectivity, observed by binding and competition… (More)
