Abstract

To arrange pyrene at the minor groove of DNA, we synthesized a nucleoside derivative possessing a pyrene group on guanine N2. Doubly pyrene-modified duplex DNA was synthesized and the formation rates of the pyrene dimer radical cation were measured upon one-electron oxidation during pulse radiolysis. For all of the DNA studied here, the formation of a pyrene dimer radical cation was accomplished quickly, within 20 micro seconds after a 8-ns electron pulse during pulse radiolysis. The results show that the minor groove of DNA offers a good space for the formation of pyrene dimer radical cations.
