Interaction of substituted cobalt(III) cage complexes with DNA

Moghaddas, Shadi; Hendry, Philip; Geue, Rodney; Qin, Chang; Bygott, Alexia; Sargeson, Alan; Dixon, Nicholas


Polycyclic aromatic moieties covalently bound to the inert cationic cobalt(III)-sar cage complex (sar = sarcophagine = 3,6,10,13,16,19-hexaazabicyclo[6.6.6]icosane) intercalate with negatively supercoiled plasmid DNA, as shown by both spectrophotometric and gel electrophoresis studies. Although anthracene itself is not a good intercalating agent, the association constant of the complex between anthracene tied to the cobalt(III)-sar cage and DNA is ≈2 × 106 dm3 mol-1 and the average binding-site...[Show more]
