The design and synthesis of a potentially more therapeutically-viable azinomycin analogue 4 based upon 3 has been completed. It involved coupling of a piperidine mustard to the acid chloride of the azinomycin chromophore. Both the designed azinomycin analogue 4 and the natural product 3 bind to DNA and cause unwinding, supporting an intercalative mode of binding. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
