Cationic porphyrins interact strongly with guanine quadruplex (G-quadruplex) DNA. We report the preparation of the zinc(II) complex of a porphyrin bearing cationic side arms, zinc(II)-5,10,15,20-tetrakis(α-pyridino-m-tolyl)porphyrin tetrabromide (ZnmPy), as a novel probe for the analysis of G-quadruplex/porphyrin interaction.
