Reductive and oxidative DNA damage by photoactive platinum(II) intercalators.

Abstract

Several photoactive platinum alpha-diimine intercalators have been prepared to develop new probes of DNA oxidation and reduction chemistry. Five water-soluble bis(mes')Pt(II) complexes (mes' = N,N,N,3,5-pentamethylaniline) with various aromatic alpha-diimine ligands (dppz = dipyridophenazine, np = naphtha[2,3-f][1,omega]phenanthroline, CN-np = naphtho[2,3-f… (More)
