The activity of DNA polymerase I from Saccharomyces cerevisiae is inhibited, in a dose-dependent fashion, by the oncogenic beta-blocker 1-(2-nitro-3-methyl-phenoxy)-3-tert-butylamino-propan-2-ol (ZAMI 1305) and by the non-oncogenic beta-blockers 1-(2-nitro-5-methyl-phenoxy)-3-tert-butylamino-propan-2-ol (ZAMI 1327), atenolol, and propranolol, the latter having the highest inhibiting activity. The inhibition is due to an interaction of the beta-blockers with the free enzyme and with the enzyme-DNA complex. The degree of inhibition is directly related to the hydrophobicity of the aromatic moiety and to the length and hydrophilicity of the aliphatic chain of the inhibitor. No relation seems to exist between the in vitro inhibition of yeast DNA polymerase I by beta-blockers and their oncogenic activity.
