Platinum(II)-based coordination compounds as nucleic acid labeling reagents: synthesis, reactivity, and applications in hybridization assays.


The synthesis, characterization, and molecular interactions of platinum(II) coordination compounds, which contain a distal nonradioactive reporter molecule, with mono- and polynucleotides are described. A [Pt(II)(en)(NH(2)(CH(2))(6)NH-tBoc)Cl](NO(3)) (en=ethylenediamine) entity has been coupled, after removal of the tBoc group, to a number of hapten and… (More)
