This study presents evaluation of the possible interaction mechanism between calf thymus dsDNA and three calcium antagonists; nifedipine, lercanidipine and amlodipine. The interactions between Nifedipine-dsDNA and Lercanidipine-dsDNA were investigated by differential pulse voltammetry using two different interaction methods; at the dsDNA-electrochemical biosensor surface and in bulk incubated solution. Amlodipine was used as model drug in bulk incubated solution. The decrease in the peak current of guanine and adenine were used as an indicator for confirmation of the interaction event in acetate buffer of pH 4.70. In bulk incubated solution, after interaction with Nifedipine and Amlodipine the guanine signal was almost disappeared. At the dsDNA modified glassy carbon electrode surface, the peak currents of guanine and adenine were decreased while Nifedipine and Lercanidipine interacts with DNA. The interactions between Nifedipine-dsDNA and Lercanidipine-dsDNA were further studied by UV–Vis absorption spectroscopy which indicates the intermolecular interaction between these drugs and ds-DNA can be mainly through hydrogen bonding and van der Waals forces. Molecular docking calculations shown that the AMP-1-2, NDP and LDP-1-2-ctDNA having groove binding. Beside spectral data, docking studies elicited that AMP-1-2, NDP and LDP-1-2 complexes have different interaction and conformation trends to target (ctDNA). © 2019
