Selective targeting of PARP-1 zinc finger recognition domains with Au(III) organometallics

Author affiliations

Abstract

The binding of Au(III) complexes to the zinc finger domain of the anticancer drug target PARP-1 was studied using a hyphenated mass spectrometry approach combined with quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) studies. Competition experiments were carried out, whereby each Au complex was exposed to two types of zinc fingers. Notably, the cyclometallated Au-C^N complex was identified as the most selective candidate to disrupt the PARP-1 zinc finger domain, forming distinct adducts compared to the coordination compound Auphen.
