The crystal structure of a left-handed Z-DNA hexamer duplex d(CGCGCG)(2) has been solved based on the anomalous diffraction signal of inherent P atoms using data collected at the single wavelength of 1.54 A. The anomalous signal of about 2% of the total diffracted intensity, constant for all nucleic acids, may be generally useful for solving crystal(More)
The molecular and crystal structure of 2'-O-Me (CGCGCG)2 has been determined using synchrotron radiation at near-atomic resolution (1.30 A), the highest resolution to date in the RNA field. The crystal structure is a half-turn A-type helix with some helical parameters deviating from canonical A-RNA, such as low base pair rise, elevated helical twist and(More)
The crystal and molecular structure of 2'-O-Me(CGCGCG)(2) has been determined at 1.19 A resolution, at 100 K, using synchrotron radiation. The structure in space group P3(2)12 is a half-turn right-handed helix that includes two 2-methyl-2,4-pentanediol (MPD) molecules bound in the minor groove. The structure deviates from A-form RNA. The duplex is overwound(More)
X-ray analysis of the pancreatic hormone glucagon shows that in crystals the polypeptide adopts a mainly helical conformation, which is stabilised by hydrophobic interactions between molecules related by threefold symmetry. A model is presented in which the glucagon molecule exists in dilute solutions as an equilibrium population of conformers with little(More)
The structures of two crystal forms of the RNA 16-mer with the sequence GUGGUCUGAUGAGGCC, grown in the presence of a high concentration of sulphate ions, have been determined using synchrotron radiation at 1.4- and 2.0-A resolution. RNA with this sequence is known as one of the two strands of the noncleavable form of the hammerhead ribozyme. In both crystal(More)
Minor nucleosides found in several eukaryotic initiator tRNASiMet, O-beta-D-ribofuranosyl(1"-->2')adenosine and -guanosine (Ar and Gr), as well as their pyrimidine analogues, were obtained from N-protected 3',5'-O-(1,1,3,3-tetraisopropyldisiloxane-1,3-diyl)ribonucle osides and 1-O-acetyl-2,3,5-tri-O-benzoyl-beta-D-ribofuranose in the presence of tin(More)
