Abstract

Alkylating agents are generally highly reactive with DNA but demonstrate limited DNA sequence selectivity. In contrast, synthetic pyrrole-imidazole polyamides recognize specific DNA sequences with high affinity but are unable to permanently damage DNA. An eight-ring hairpin polyamide conjugated to the alkylating moiety cyclopropylpyrroloindole, related to the natural product CC-1065, affords a conjugate 1-CBI (polyamide 1-CBI (1-(chloromethyl)-5-hydroxyl-1,2-dihydro-3H-benz[e]indole) conjugate), which binds to specific sequences in the minor groove of DNA and alkylates a single adenine flanking the polyamide binding site. In this study, we show that 1-CBI alkylates DNA in both plasmid and intracellular minichromosomal form and inhibits DNA replication under both cell-free and cellular conditions. In addition, it inhibits cell growth and arrests cells in the G2/M phase of the cell cycle.
