The necessity for cellular regulation of DNA led to the development of metallonucleases to catalyze and repair DNA strand breaks. Due to cationic character, three-dimensional structural profiles, and propensity for performing hydrolysis, redox, or photoreactions of metal ions and complexes, have a natural ability for interacting with DNA. Since bin...

G-quadruplex (G4) as one of significant functional nucleic acids (FNAs) has attracted researchers’ wide attention, and especially has been employed for construction of label-free molecular sensing and logic systems based on the peroxidase-like activity of G4-hemin complex and G4-enhanced luminescence of G4-binding organic dyes. Its cation-dependent...

Four‐way junctions (4WJ) are supramolecular DNA assemblies comprising four interacting DNA strands that in biology are involved in DNA damage repair. In this work, a new mononuclear platinum(II) complex (1) was prepared that is capable of driving the crystallization of the DNA oligomer 5′‐d(CGTACG)‐3′ specifically into a 4WJ‐like motif. In the crys...
