ABSTRACT 2-Aminopurine-modified abasic-site-containing duplex [DNA 5'-TCTGC GTCCT PXT TAACG CACAC-3'/3'-AGACG CAGGA TCA ATTGC GTGTG-5'; P = 2-aminopurine, X = abasic site (Spacer-C3), C = receptor base] is capable of selectively binding to the bronchodilator theophylline with a dissociation constant of 10 microM (5 degrees C, pH 7.0, I = 0.11 M) and is applicable to monitoring serum theophylline concentrations.

    ABSTRACT: Sequences like the core element of TATA box and CpG island are frequently encountered in the genome and related to transcription. The fate of repair of clustered abasic sites in such sequences of genomic importance is largely unknown. This prompted us to investigate the sequence dependence of cleavage efficiency of APE1 enzyme at abasic sites within the core sequences of TATA box and CpG island using fluorescence dynamics and reaction kinetics. Simultaneous molecular dynamics study through steady state and time resolved fluorescence spectroscopy using unique ethidium bromide dye release assay confirmed an elevated amount of abasic site cleavage of the TATA box sequence as compared to the core CpG island. Reaction kinetics showed that catalytic efficiency of APE1 for abasic site cleavage of core CpG island sequence was ∼4 times lower as compared to that of the TATA box. Higher value of Km was obtained from the core CpG island sequence than the TATA box sequence. This suggests a greater binding effect of APE1 enzyme on TATA sequence that signifies a prominent role of the sequence context of the DNA substrate. Evidently, a faster response from APE1 was obtained for clustered abasic damage repair of TATA box core sequences than CpG island consensus sequences. The neighboring bases of the abasic sites in the complementary DNA strand were found to have significant contribution in addition to the flanking bases in modulating APE1 activity. The repair refractivity of the bistranded clustered abasic sites arise from the slow processing of the second abasic site, consequently resulting in decreased overall production of potentially lethal double strand breaks.

    ABSTRACT: Polyheterocyclic pyrimidinyltheophyllines have been synthesized from pyrimidine and theophylline precursors. Attempts to cyclize these reactive bis-heterocyclic systems resulted in the formation of the corresponding diazepine moieties. In addition, modification of the reaction conditions led to the formation of imidazo[2,1-f]purines.
