Abstract

Adriamycin-Fe3+ complex catalyzes the formation of hydroxyl radical from hydrogen peroxide but the DNA-adriamycin-iron ternary complex is much more effective. 11-Deoxyadriamycin, which shows no spectral evidence of complex formation with iron, was ineffective. The generation of hydroxyl radical by adriamycin-Fe3+ complex in the presence of DNA correlates with its ability to cleave DNA. Hydroxyl radicals are thus implicated as the reactive oxygen species involved in the DNA damage caused by the adriamycin-Fe3+ complex.
