This work studies the binding properties of distamycin and its carbamoyl analog, containing four pyrrole units, with the [d(TGGGGT)](4) quadruplex by means of isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC). Analysis of the ITC data reveals that drug/quadruplex binding stoichiometry is 1:1 for both interactions and that distamycin analog gives approximately a 10-fold increase in the quadruplex affinity.

Abstract

This work studies the binding properties of distamycin and its carbamoyl analog, containing four pyrrole units, with the [d(TGGGGT)](4) quadruplex by means of isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC). Analysis of the ITC data reveals that drug/quadruplex binding stoichiometry is 1:1 for both interactions and that distamycin analog gives approximately a 10-fold increase in the quadruplex affinity.
