TMPyP4, tetra-(N-methyl-4-pyridyl)porphyrin, is a potent inhibitor of human TERT (telomerase, IC50 = 6.5 μM). TMPyP4 binds strongly to DNA quadruplexes by stacking on the G-tetrads at the core of the quadruplex, resulting in telomerase inhibition. TMPyP4 fluoresces intensely in the presence of quadruplex DNA.
