Abstract:

A large dimeric calix[4]arene hexaaniline binds selectively to double-stranded DNA and esp. RNA with submicromolar KD values. A simulation shows the complex between a 12-base-pair B-DNA and an anilinocalixarene dimer, which fits snugly into the major groove. Several phys. and spectroscopic characteristics strongly indicate insertion into the major groove.
