For B-DNA, the strong linear correlation observed by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) between the (31)P chemical shifts (deltaP) and three recurrent internucleotide distances demonstrates the tight coupling between phosphate motions and helicoidal parameters. It allows to translate deltaP into distance restraints directly exploitable in structural(More)
DNase I requires Ca²+ and Mg²+ for hydrolyzing double-stranded DNA. However, the number and the location of DNase I ion-binding sites remain unclear, as well as the role of these counter-ions. Using molecular dynamics simulations, we show that bovine pancreatic (bp) DNase I contains four ion-binding pockets. Two of them strongly bind Ca²+ while the other(More)
