We investigated sequence-specific DNA alkylation using conjugates between the N-methylpyrrole (Py)-N-methylimidazole (Im) polyamide and the DNA alkylating agent, chlorambucil, or 1-(chloromethyl)-5-hydroxy-1, 2-dihydro-3H-benz[e]indole (seco-CBI). Polyamide-chlorambucil conjugates 1-4 differed in the position at which the DNA alkylating chlorambucil moiety was bound to the Py-Im polyamide. High-resolution denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) revealed that chlorambucil conjugates 1-4 alkylated DNA at the sequences recognized by the Py-Im polyamide core moiety. Reactivity and sequence specificity were greatly affected by the conjugation position, which reflects the geometry of the alkylating agent in the DNA minor groove. Polyamide-seco-CBI conjugate 5 was synthesized to compare the efficacy of chlorambucil with that of seco-CBI as an alkylating moiety for Py-Im polyamides. Denaturing PAGE analysis revealed that DNA alkylation activity of polyamide-seco-CBI conjugate 5 was similar to that of polyamide-chlorambucil conjugates 1 and 2. In contrast, the cytotoxicity of conjugate 5 was superior to that of conjugates 1-4. These results suggest that the seco-CBI conjugate was distinctly active in cells compared to the chlorambucil conjugates. These results may contribute to the development of more specific and active DNA alkylating agents.
