Abstract [en]

DNA intercalators that have high affinity and slow kinetics are developed for potential DNA-targeted therapeutics. Although many natural intercalators contain multiple chiral subunits, only intercalators with a single chiral unit have been quantitatively probed. Dumbbell-shaped DNA threading intercalators represent the next order of structural complexity relative to simple intercalators, and can provide significant insights into the stereoselectivity of DNA-ligand intercalation. We investigated DNA threading intercalation by binuclear ruthenium complex [mu-dppzip(phen)(4)Ru-2](4+) (Piz). Four Piz stereoisomers are defined by the chirality of the intercalating subunit (Ru(phen)(2)dppz) and the distal subunit (Ru(phen)(2)ip), respectively, each of which can be either right-handed (Delta) or left-handed (Lambda). We used optical tweezers to measure single DNA molecule elongation due to threading intercalation, revealing force-dependent DNA intercalation rates and equilibrium dissociation constants. The force spectroscopy analysis provided the zero-force DNA binding affinity, the equilibrium DNA-ligand elongation Delta x(eq), and the dynamic DNA structural deformations during ligand association x(on) and dissociation x(off). We found that Piz stereoisomers exhibit over 20-fold differences in DNA binding affinity, from a K-d of 27 +/- 3 nM for (Delta,Lambda)-Piz to a K-d of 622 +/- 55 nM for (Lambda,Delta)-Piz. The striking affinity decrease is correlated with increasing Delta x(eq) from 0.30 +/- 0.02 to 0.48 +/- 0.02 nm and x(on) from 0.25 +/- 0.01 to 0.46 +/- 0.02 nm, but limited x(off) changes. Notably, the affinity and threading kinetics is 10-fold enhanced for right-handed intercalating subunits, and 2- to 5-fold enhanced for left-handed distal subunits. These findings demonstrate sterically dispersed transition pathways and robust DNA structural recognition of chiral intercalators, which are critical for optimizing DNA binding affinity and kinetics.
