A series of new DNA binding molecules NCD–Cn–SH (n = 3, 4, 5, and 6) is reported, which possesses the NCD (naphthyridine carbamate dimer) domain selectively binding to the G–G mismatch in the 5′-CGG-3′/5′-CGG-3′ sequence and a thiol moiety, which undergoes spontaneous dimerization to (NCD–Cn–S)2 upon oxidation under aerobic conditions. The S–S dimer (NCD–Cn–S)2 produced the 1:1 binding complex with improved thermal stability. The dimer binding to the CGG/CGG DNA showed higher positive cooperativity than the binding of monomer and previously synthesized NCTn derivative. The dimerization of NCD–Cn–SH was selectively accelerated on the CGG repeat DNA but not on the CAG repeat DNA.
