The folding of AG(3)(T(2)AG(3))(3) was investigated in the presence of Na(+) or K(+) ions, by using the dinuclear platinum complexes [{trans-PtCl(NH(3))(2)}(2)H(2)N(CH(2))(n)NH(2)]Cl(2) (n = 2 or 6). AG(3)(T(2)AG(3))(3) has been previously found to adopt two different quadruplex structures: the antiparallel one in a solution containing Na(+) and the(More)
BACKGROUND Gene amplification is thought to promote over-expression of genes favouring tumour development. Because amplified regions are usually megabase-long, amplification often concerns numerous syntenic or non-syntenic genes, among which only a subset is over-expressed. The rationale for these differences remains poorly understood. (More)
Telomeres, the nucleoprotein complexes located at the ends of chromosomes, are involved in chromosome protection and genome stability. Telomeric repeat binding factor 1 (TRF1) and telomeric repeat binding factor 2 (TRF2) are the two telomeric proteins that bind to duplex telomeric DNA through interactions between their C-terminal domain and several guanines(More)
