The crystal structure of the DNA decamer C-C-A-A-C-G-T-T-G-G has been solved to a resolution of 1.4 A, and is compared with the 1.3 A structure of C-C-A-A-G-A-T-T-G-G and the 1.6 A structure of C-C-A-G-G-C-C-T-G-G. All three decamers crystallize isomorphously in space group C2 with five base-pairs per asymmetric unit, and with decamer double helices stacked(More)
The crystal structure of the DNA decamer C-G-A-T-C-G-A-T-C-G has been solved to a resolution of 1.5 A, with a final R-factor of 16.1% for 5,107 two-sigma reflections. Crystals are orthorhombic space group P2(1)2(1)2(1), with cell dimensions a = 38.93 A, b = 39.63 A, c = 33.30 A, and 10 base pairs/asymmetric unit. The final structure contains 404 DNA atoms,(More)
Local variations in B-DNA helix structure are compared among three decamers and eight dodecamers, which contain examples of all ten base-pair step types. All pairwise combinations of helix parameters are compared by linear regression analysis, in a search for internal relationships as well as correlations with base sequence. The primary conclusions are: (1)(More)
The B-DNA decanucleotide C-G-A-T-C-G-6meA-T-C-G has been crystallized under the same conditions used earlier for C-G-A-T-C-G-A-T-C-G, but is found to adopt a new trigonal P3(2)21 packing mode instead of the expected orthorhombic P2(1)2(1)2(1) form. Unit cell dimensions a = b = 33.38 A, c = 98.30 A, gamma = 120 degrees, imply ten base-pairs or one complete(More)
The X-ray crystal structure analysis of the decamer C-G-A-T-T-A-A-T-C-G has been carried out to a resolution of 1.5 A. The crystals are space group P2(1)2(1)2(1), cell dimensions a = 38.60 A, b = 39.10 A, c = 33.07 A. The structure was solved by molecular replacement and refined with X-PLOR and NUCLSQ. The final R factor for a model with 404 DNA atoms, 108(More)
We study supersymmetric (SUSY) models in which the muon g − 2 discrepancy and the dark matter relic abundance are simultaneously explained. The muon g − 2 discrepancy, or a 3σ deviation between the experimental and theoretical results of the muon anomalous magnetic moment, can be resolved by SUSY models, which implies at least three SUSY multiplets have(More)
