Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Synthesis of chiral spirocyclic helical compounds which mimic the molecular architecture of the potent DNA bulge binder obtained from the antitumor agent NCS-chrom has been accomplished. Structural analysis of the compounds by CD and NMR is presented. NMR titration study indicates binding of P,α-helimer (1d) at a two-base bulge site in a DNA oligomer, providing insight to the design of agents as specific probes of a bulged structure in nucleic acids.
