Zn2+ dependent DNA binders based on terminally modified peptide nucleic acids.


Two ligand-intercalator-peptide nucleic acid conjugates (L-NADI-PNAs) have been synthesized. Affinity of these conjugates to their complementary DNAs was found to be affected by Zn(2+). The magnitude of this effect could be controlled by a variation of the ligand. Upon binding Zn(2+) the L-NADI-PNAs form positively charged ZnL complexes, which interact with… (More)
