Generation of DNA interstrand cross-links by post-synthetic reductive amination


Angelov, Todor; Guainazzi, Angelo; Schärer, Orlando D (2009). Generation of DNA interstrand cross-links by post-synthetic reductive amination. Organic Letters, 11(3):661-664.

Abstract

DNA interstrand cross-links (ICLs) are the clinically most relevant adducts formed by many antitumor agents. To facilitate the study of biological responses triggered by ICLs, we developed a new approach toward the synthesis of mimics of nitrogen mustard ICLs. 7-Deazaguanine residues bearing acetaldehyde groups were incorporated into complementary strands of DNA and cross-link formation induced by double reductive amination. Our strategy enables the synthesis of major groove cross-links in high yields and purity.
