    Mutagenic agents such as aromatic amines undergo metabolic activation and produce DNA adducts at C8 position of guanine bases. N-2-acetylaminofluorene (AAF) generates different mutational outcomes when placed at G1, G2, and G3 of a NarI sequence (-G1G2CG3CC/T-). These outcomes are dictated by the conformations adopted by these adducts. Detection of such lesions is of considerable interest owing to their hazardous effects. Here, we report the synthesis of three cyclometalated [Ir(L)2dppz]+ complexes (L = 2-phenylpyridine (ppy) 1; benzo[h]quinoline (bhq) 2; 2-phenylquinoline (pq) 3; dppz = dipyrido[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine) and their interaction with AAF adducted NarI DNA. Remarkably, complexes 1 and 2 displayed dominant 3LC transition characteristic of polar environment despite binding to the adducted sites. On the other hand, complex 3 binds to NarI sequences and behaves as a luminescent reporter for AAF-modified DNA. The results reported here emphasize that molecular light switching phenomenon can be stimulated by switching ancillary ligands and might act as potential probes for covalent-DNA defects. © 2021.
