A series of 9-hydroxy-1,3-diazaphenoxazine-2-one derivatives were synthesized as fluorescent receptor molecules for 8-oxo-dGTP, which attach the cyclen-zinc complex at the 3-N position as the binding site for the triphosphate and the (2-aryloxycarbonylamino)ethyl group at the 9-O position as the hydrogen bonding site for 8-oxoguanine. Among these molecules, the receptor molecule 5a-Zn constructed of the ethyl linker at 3-N and the (2-benzyloxycarbonyl amino)ethyl group at 9-O displayed the best recognition ability for 8-oxoguanosine triphosphate (8-oxo-dGTP) in aqueous media. The receptor 5a-Zn was also shown to selectively detect 8-oxo-dGTP in a cell lysate solution.
