Interaction of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (II) with single-stranded DNA in the presence or absence of Escherichia coli single-stranded binding protein.

Abstract:

We have compared the mode of fixation in vitro of the antitumor drug cis-diamminedichloroplatinum (II) (cis-DDP) to single-stranded M13mp10 DNA either in the presence or absence of the Escherichia coli single-stranded binding protein (SSB). Platinum binding sites have been identified by taking advantage of their capacity to inhibit DNA replication of primed M13 DNA catalysed by E. coli DNA polymerase I large fragment. We report here that the presence of SSB increases the number of platinum-DNA lesions and alters their distribution. We also present evidence that SSB allows cis-DDP to bind to DNA sequences otherwise less accessible.
