When two metal centres are needed instead of one: exclusive induction of Z-DNA by dinuclear metal complexes


Medina-Molner, Alfredo; Spingler, Bernhard (2012). When two metal centres are needed instead of one: exclusive induction of Z-DNA by dinuclear metal complexes. Chemical Communications, 48(14):1961-1963.

Abstract

The B- to Z-DNA transition was very efficiently induced by dinuclear nickel and copper complexes based on the 1,3-bis(1,5,9-triazacyclododecyl) propane ligand but not by the corresponding mononuclear complexes. This dramatically different behaviour is explained by the formation of a macrochelate of the dinuclear complexes to the DNA.
