Ditopic binuclear copper(II) complexes for DNA cleavage.

Ditopic binuclear copper(II) complexes for DNA cleavage. J Inorg Biochem. 2020 Jan 11;205:110995 Authors: Carreira-Barral I, Riopedre-Fernández M, de Blas A, Mosquera J, Vázquez ME, Platas-Iglesias C, Esteban-Gómez D Abstract Herein we present the synthesis of two ligands containing two di(2-picolyl)amine (DPA) units linked by either a 1,1'-(pyridine-2,6-diyl)bis(3-ethylurea) (L1) or a 1,1'-(1,3-phenylene)bis(3-ethylurea) (L2) spacer. The corresponding binuclear CuII and ZnII complexes were prepared and isolated. The X-ray structures of the L1 ligand and the [Cu2L1Cl2]2+ complex evidence an unusual cis/trans conformation of one of the urea groups stabilized by an intramolecular hydrogen bond with the nitrogen atom of the pyridyl spacer. The CuII complexes form rather strong ternary complexes with phosphorylated anions. The [Cu2L1]4+ complex presents a rather high affinity for pyrophosphate (logK11 = 8.19 at pH 7, 25 °C), while [Cu2L2]4+ stands out because of its strong binding to AMP2- (logK11 = 9.3 at pH 7, 25 °C). The interaction of the CuII complexes with deoxyribonucleic acid from calf thymus (ct-DNA) was monitored using circular dichroism (CD) and luminescence spectroscopies. These studies revealed a quite strong interaction of the complexes with ct-DNA (Kb = (6.4 ± 0.7) × 103 for [Cu2L1]4+ and Kb = (6.3 ± 1.0)&n...
