In the cis-molecule, the chlorines are on the same side. They bond to adjacent guanines by kicking off a nitrogen on a DNA molecule. The trans-platin version of the molecule has Cl's oriented on opposite sides, so when one of the Cl's binds to a guanine, the DNA Polymerase can easily kick off the Cl and continue DNA replication.
