Solid-phase synthesis and DNA binding studies of dichloroplatinum(ii) conjugates of dicarba analogues of octreotide as new anticancer drugs.


PMID 19641816

Abstract

The first dichloroplatinum(ii) conjugates of dicarba analogues of octreotide, which is expected to act as a 'tumour-targeting device', have been efficiently synthesized following a stepwise solid-phase approach; these compounds emulate the mechanism of cisplatin since they form a 1,2-intrastrand cross-link with two consecutive guanines of an oligonucleotide.
