Abstract:
The association of ligands with nucleic acids is an important process in biology and in medicine, because it usually induces a significant change of the DNA structure. As a result, the formation of ligand-DNA complexes may have a fundamental influence on the physiological function of the nucleic acid. In this seminar, our approaches to develop novel DNA-intercalating cationic hetarenes will be presented, and concepts will be introduced to accomplish a photo-induced complexation and decomplexation of photoactive ligands with DNA.
