A preferential target of antisense oligonucleotides directed against human PGY/MDR1 mRNA is a hairpin containing a stem with a G*U wobble pair, capped by the purine-rich 5'r(GGGAUG)3' hexaloop. This hairpin is studied by multidimensional NMR and restrained molecular dynamics, with special emphasis on the conformation of south sugars and non-standard(More)
Hairpins containing hexaloops are well represented among the diverse conformations adopted by the RNA molecules. To investigate the intrinsic properties of a backbone submitted to a hexaloop fold, we present here a molecular dynamics study of an abasic hexaloop closed by an A-form 6 basepair stem. The analysis of the 23 ns trajectory made in explicit(More)
