Cisplatin is used as a chemotherapy drug as the Cl binds to DNA as it is substituting two adjacent guanines.

Cisplatin is a chemotherapy drug that binds to DNA by substituting Cl for two adjacent Guanines. It blocks cell division (replication), which treats cancer.

Cisplatin is an example of a chemoterapy drug. It binds to the Guanine in DNA and stops replication. Transplatin is not effective because it only forms one bond with DNA.
