Synthesis of DNA interstrand crosslinks using a photocaged nucleobase


Hentschel, Sarah; Alzeer, Jawad; Angelov, Todor; Schärer, Orlando D; Luedtke, Nathan W (2012). Synthesis of DNA interstrand crosslinks using a photocaged nucleobase. Angewandte Chemie Internationale Edition, 51(14):3466-3469.

Abstract

BCNU is a chemotherapy drug that generates an ethylene bridge between N1 of deoxyguanosine and N3 of deoxycytidine. No synthesis of a DNA containing this moiety has been reported until now. A new strategy uses a photocaged nucleobase that, when released, generates a highly reactive intermediate which cross-links the opposing DNA strand in a manner analogous to BCNU.
