Molecular AND-logic for dually controlled activation of a DNA-binding spiropyran

Author affiliations

Abstract

A spiropyran photoswitch is activated using UV light and protons from a form that shows no interaction with DNA to a form that binds to DNA by intercalation. This scheme is interpreted as a biologically relevant logic AND gate with potential applications as a dually controlled anticancer drug.
