Abstract

The spermine conjugate of the cationic porphyrin ligand (1) selectively induced the B-Z transition of the [(dA-T)n]2 sequence at low salt concentrations. The [(dG-C)n]2 sequence was not transformed into the Z-form. The B-Z transition was induced via an intermediate DNA conformation, which was formed by the external binding and formation of an assembly of 1 onto B-DNA.
