Janssen BM, van Ommeren SP, Merkx M - Int J Mol Sci (2015)

Bottom Line: The effect of Py-Im polyamide conjugation on DNA binding was investigated by Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR).Although the synthesis of different protein-Py-Im-polyamide conjugates was successful, attenuation of DNA affinity was observed, in particular for the protein-Py-Im-polyamide conjugates.The practical use of protein-Py-Im-polyamide conjugates for addressing DNA structures in an orthogonal but non-covalent manner, therefore, remains to be established.

ABSTRACT
The advancement of DNA-based bionanotechnology requires efficient strategies to functionalize DNA nanostructures in a specific manner with other biomolecules, most importantly peptides and proteins. Common DNA-functionalization methods rely on laborious and covalent conjugation between DNA and proteins or peptides. Pyrrole-imidazole (Py-Im) polyamides, based on natural minor groove DNA-binding small molecules, can bind to DNA in a sequence specific fashion. In this study, we explore the use of Py-Im polyamides for addressing proteins and peptides to DNA in a sequence specific and non-covalent manner. A generic synthetic approach based on native chemical ligation was established that allows efficient conjugation of both peptides and recombinant proteins to Py-Im polyamides. The effect of Py-Im polyamide conjugation on DNA binding was investigated by Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR). Although the synthesis of different protein-Py-Im-polyamide conjugates was successful, attenuation of DNA affinity was observed, in particular for the protein-Py-Im-polyamide conjugates. The practical use of protein-Py-Im-polyamide conjugates for addressing DNA structures in an orthogonal but non-covalent manner, therefore, remains to be established.

Synthesis of pyrrole-imidazole (Py–Im) polyamide conjugates via native chemical ligation. Schematic representation of the Py–Im polyamide sequence used in this study (ImImPyPy-γ-PyPyPyPy-β-Dp) to target the DNA sequence 5ʹ-WWGGWWW-3ʹ (W represents either A or T). The introduction of a cysteine at the N-terminus of the Py–Im polyamide allows native chemical ligation of peptides and proteins bearing a C-terminal thioester.
