Interaction of DNA with the analogs of the antibiotic distamycin A having different numbers of pyrrolcarboxamide groups and labeled with dansyl was studied. The binding isoterms of the analogs to synthetic polydeoxyribonucleotides were obtained. Analysis of the experimental data leads to the following conclusions: (1) the free energy of binding of the(More)
Thermal denaturation of four oligonucleotides, viz. 3'-d(AT)5pO(CH2)6Opd(AT)5-3'(par(AT], 3'-d(AT)5pO(CH2)6Opd(AT)5-5'(anti(AT],3'-d(A)10pO(CH2) 6Op(T)10-3'(par(A-T], and 3'-d(A)10pO(CH2)6Opd(T)10-5' (anti(A-T], was studied in 0.01 M phosphate buffer, pH 7, in the presence of 0.1, 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 M NaCl. All the oligomers were found to exist at a lower(More)
In search for compounds capable of forming covalent bonds with DNA AT-pair clusters, distamycin A and netropsin analogues containing DL-sarcolysin or platinum (II) atom at the N-terminus of the molecule were synthesized, as well as bis-netropsin and bis-distamycin in which two netropsin- or distamycin-like fragments are bound via a cis-diammineplatinum (II)(More)
50 S subunits of E. coli ribosomes catalyze the reaction of the 2'(3')-N-(formyl) methionine ester of adenosine 5'-phosphate and Phe-tRNA resulting in peptide bond synthesis. Cytidine 5'-phosphate stimulates this process on 50 S ribosomal subunits as well as on intact ribosomes. The obtained data show that the areas of the peptidyltransferase donor site(More)
Effect of attachment of 1-(2-deoxy-beta-D-ribofuranosyl)-5-nitroindole (NIDR) to the ends of target sequence of oligonucleotides immobilized on gel micromatrix on stability of duplex formed by hybridization with DNA fragment was studied. It was shown that adjunction of NIDR to 5' as well as to 3' end results in increasing stability of duplexes although in(More)
A detailed scheme of the Peptidyl Transferase Centre of bacterial ribosomes is proposed by summarizing the literature data on the substrate specificity of the acceptor and donor sites. According to the proposed scheme only the elements of the donor and acceptor having a stable structure bind with the ribosome. The present paper proposes such main elements(More)
