Reductive and oxidative DNA damage by photoactive platinum(II) intercalators


, : Reductive and oxidative DNA damage by photoactive platinum(II) intercalators. Inorganic Chemistry 44(22): 7970-7980

Several photoactive platinum alpha-diimine intercalators have been prepared to develop new probes of DNA oxidation and reduction chemistry. Five water-soluble bis(mes')Pt(II) complexes (mes' = N,N,N,3,5-pentamethylaniline) with various aromatic alpha-diimine ligands (dppz = dipyridophenazine, np = naphtha[2,3-f][1,omega]phenanthroline, CN-np = naphtho[2,3-f][1,10]phenanthroline-9-carbonitrile, CN(2)-np = naphtho[2,3-f][1,10]phenanthroline-9,14-dicarbonitrile, and bp = benzo-[f][1,10]phenanthroline) were synthesized. The complex [(np)Pt(mes')(2)]Cl(2) was also characterized by X-ray crystallography, and the crystal structure shows that the ortho-methyl groups of the mes' ligands conveniently block substitution at the vacant sites of platinum without overlapping with the intercalating alpha-diimine ligand. The Pt(II) complexes were found to have excited-state oxidation and reduction potentials of -0.6 to -1.0 and 1.0 to 1.5 V versus NHE, respectively, making them potent photoreductants as well as photooxidants. Many of the complexes are found to promote the photooxidation of N(2)-cyclopropyldeoxyguanosine (d(Cp)G). Photoexcited [(dppz)Pt(mes')(2)](2+) is found to be most efficient in this photooxidation, as well as in the photoreduction of N(4)-cyclopropylcytidine ((Cp)C); these modified nucleosides rapidly decompose in a ring-opening reaction upon oxidation or reduction. Photoexcited [(dppz)Pt(mes')(2)]Cl(2), upon intercalation into the DNA pi stack, is found, in addition, to promote reductive and oxidative damage within the DNA duplex, as is also probed using the kinetically fast electron and hole traps, (Cp)C and (Cp)G. These Pt complexes may therefore offer useful reactive tools to compare and contrast directly reductive and oxidative chemistry in double helical DNA.
