Abstract

Bleomycin (BLM) is an antitumor antibiotic that is believed to mediate its therapeutic effects at the level of DNA scission. Strand scission by bleomycin requires the presence of a redox active metal such as Fe, Cu or Mn, and a source of oxygen; there is increasing evidence that BLM-mediated DNA degradation is mediated by a ternary complex of BLM, the redox active metal ion and oxygen, and that information of the ternary complex involves reductive activation of oxygen. Presently, the authors demonstrate that activation of dioxygen by Fe(II)·BLM results in the formation of two equivalents of H 2O where no substrate is present, and that the conversion requires the expected 4 electrons. Further, it is shows that the activated Fe·BLM is formed by heterolytic cleavage of the O-O bond.
