Summary of "Tuning the ring strain effect in acridine derivatives on binding affinity with G-quadruplex-DNA: A computational and experimental study."

Search for inhibitors to stabilize the telomeric G-quadruplex in order to deter telomerase activity is an active area of research. Inhibitors play an important role to initiate the tumor cell mortalization process. This work reports for the first time of acridine derivative with four membered ammonium rings at the side chain to surpass the binding ability against BRACO-19 with G-quadruplex-DNA. It is known in the literature that acridine based molecule BRACO-19 can effectively bind with G-quadruplex-DNA. The computational study performed in this study revealed that the binding ability of acridine based molecule can be augmented with subtle variation in the molecular structure of the drug like candidates. Steered molecular dynamics (SMD) performed with the acridine derivatives and G-quadruplex DNA showed the importance of ring strain to the side chain of those ligand molecules. The rupture force analysis, hydrogen bonding interactions and the calculated free energies in MM-PBSA method suggest that ligand 3 is superior than that of BRACO-19. The synthesized ligand 3 and BRACO-19 showed the binding constants obtained from ITC measurements are 4 × 10 mol and 2.6 × 10, which corroborates the computational findings.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The interaction of two or more substrates or ligands with the same binding site. The displacement of one by the other is used in quantitative and selective affinity measurements.

Synthetic analogs of NUCLEIC ACIDS composed of morpholine ring derivatives (MORPHOLINES) linked by phosphorodimidates. One standard DNA nucleic acid base (ADENINE; GUANINE; CYTOSINE; OR THYMINE) is bound to each morpholine ring.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

A potent inhibitor of the high affinity uptake system for CHOLINE. It has less effect on the low affinity uptake system. Since choline is one of the components of ACETYLCHOLINE, treatment with hemicholinium can deplete acetylcholine from cholinergic terminals. Hemicholinium 3 is commonly used as a research tool in animal and in vitro experiments.

Alicyclic hydrocarbons in which three or more of the carbon atoms in each molecule are united in a ring structure and each of the ring carbon atoms is joined to two hydrogen atoms or alkyl groups. The simplest members are cyclopropane (C3H6), cyclobutane (C4H8), cyclohexane (C6H12), and derivatives of these such as methylcyclohexane (C6H11CH3).
