Patent Searching and Data

Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2016/206583
Kind Code:
Disclosed are methods of using d8 square planar metal complexes containing tridentate π-conjugated ligands and ancillary ligand of N-heterocyclic carbene or di-phosphine ligand to target mismatched DNA. Targeting of mismatched DNA can be revealed by monitoring the differences in emission enhancement of metal complexes toward mismatched DNA and matched DNA; or the gradually heat release from isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) when complexes bind toward mismatch DNA; or the significant increase in melting temperature of the mismatched DNA after adding complexes.
