The cobalt(II) tetracarboxyphthalocyanine-deoxyribonucleotide pd(TCTTCCCA) conjugate was synthesized. The phthalocyanineN-succinimide ester prepared from phthalocyanine using DCC was mixed in DMF with an aqueous solution of the oligonucleotide bearing a 1,3-diaminopropane linker at the 5′-phosphate. The resulting conjugate was tested in the intraduplex reaction with target 14-mer and 22-mer oligonucleotides containing conjugate-complementary sequences. In the presence of O2 and a thiol (2-mercaptoethanol or DTT), as a coupled reducer, or H2O2, sequence-specific DNA modification was observed that caused the cleavage of the target upon treatment with piperidine.
