The use of solid constructive geometry and color coding of electrostatic potential provides a clear distinction between the minor grooves of DNA with distinct sequences. The predicted differential binding of oxidized and reduced forms of ligands to the DNA grooves is proposed as a means of introducing tumor selectivity.
- lectrostatic potential
- solid modelling
- anti-cancer drugs
