The ability to direct the penetration of DNA into cells is called transformation when the microbes are bacteria or yeast and transfection when the target organisms are of a higher order. The compounds that serve as transformation agents are dianilides of isophthalic or dipicolinic acid. These simple compounds permit transformation more efficiently than many currently available methods and are able to transform DNA plasmids that are as large as 20 kilobases. These plasmids are significantly larger than those transformed by conventional methods used for bacteria. When these compounds transform yeast, dramatic increases are observed when ssRNA, a key element of the standard protocol, is eliminated. These tris-arene transformation agents are nontoxic at concentrations up to 1000 μM (1 mM) and show no mutagenic behavior in the Ames test. The methodology, mechanisms, and visualization methods will be discussed in this presentation.
