DNA Photosensitization by an "Insider": Photophysics and Triplet Energy Transfer of 5-Methyl-2-pyrimidone Deoxyribonucleoside

Abstract : The main chromophore of (6-4) photoproducts, namely, 5-methyl-2-pyrimidone (Pyo), is an artificial noncanonical nucleobase. This chromophore has recently been reported as a potential photosensitizer that induces triplet damage in thymine DNA. In this study, we investigate the spectroscopic properties of the Pyo unit embedded in DNA by means of explicit solvent molecular-dynamics simulations coupled to time-dependent DFT and quantum-mechanics/molecular-mechanics techniques. Triplet-state transfer from the Pyo to the thymine unit was monitored in B-DNA by probing the propensity of this photoactive pyrimidine analogue to induce a Dexter-type triplet photosensitization and subsequent DNA damage.
