The synthesis of a series of new oligopyrrole carboxamides closely related to netropsin and distamycin A, linked with a nucleobase is reported. The new compounds possess similar structure elements as the known peptide nucleic acids which are interesting sequence reading DNA ligands. Cytotoxicity in vitro, the DNA binding characteristics and the inhibition… CONTINUE READING
