The influence of the position of the CG.C+ triplet and the contribution of protonation at the N3 of the Hoogsteen cytosine residue on the stability of various sequences of parallel triple helices having the general composition d[(A5G)-x-(T5C)-x-(T5C)] and d[(A4G2)-x-(T4C2)-x-(T4C2)], where x is the hexaethylene glycol linker, has been determined by NMR,(More)
BACKGROUND Polypurine x polypyrimidine sequences of DNA can form parallel triple helices via Hoogsteen hydrogen bonds with a third DNA strand that is complementary to the purine strand. The triplex prevents transcription and could therefore potentially be used to regulate specific genes. The determination of the structures of triplex-duplex junctions can(More)
The interaction of the 11-mer oligodeoxypyrimidine d(TCTTCTUTCCT) with the 17 bp duplex d(CGCTAGAAGAAAGGACG).d(CGTCCUTTCTTCTAGCG) in forming an intermolecular DNA triplex has been examined in solution by surface plasmon resonance (SPR), UV thermal denaturation, circular dichroism (CD), and NMR methods. Thermodynamic data were also acquired for the shorter(More)
The solution conformations of the intramolecular triple helices d(AGAAGA-X-TCTTCT-X-TC+TTC+T) and d(AAGGAA-X-TTCCTT-X-TTC+C+TT) (X = non-nucleotide linker) have been determined by NMR.1H NMR spectra in H2O showed that the third strand cytosine residues are fully paired with the guanine residues, each using two Hoogsteen hydrogen bonds. Determination of(More)
