Distamycin and netropsin are two oligopeptides which bind to DNA in a nonintercalative manner. Analogues of distamycin have been synthesized and their binding with poly d(A-T) studied using ultraviolet absorption spectroscopy. Preliminary biological activity tests on a gram positive bacteria using these analogues have also been carried out.
