Water-soluble DNA cross-linking phenol and biphenol derivatives 3 and 6 have been synthesized by a Mannich reaction. Both of them can cross-link DNA by photoactivation using visible light (wavelength > 400 nm). Compound 6 can cross-link DNA at pH 5.0 and 7.7, whereas no cross-link was observed at pH 10.0. Density functional theory (DFT) calculation indicated that 6 displays a twist structure. Therefore, it could bind to DNA naturally and has potent property to cross-link DNA after photoactivation.
