An oligodeoxyribonucleotide, d(GCTCACAAT-X-ATTGTGAGC), where X represents a hexaethylene glycol chain, was studied using circular dichroism spectroscopy. Its conformation and conformational stability were compared to those of compounds where X was replaced by four thymines and to the duplex of same sequence without loop. The compound with the hexaethylene(More)
Sequencing by the recently reported hybridization technique requires the formation of DNA duplexes with similar stabilities. In this paper we describe a new strategy to obtain DNA duplexes with a thermal stability independent of their AT/GC ratio content. Melting data were acquired on 35 natural and 27 modified duplexes of a given length and of varying base(More)
