Many key characteristics of hole transfer (HT) in DNA have been derived from spectroscopic studies of DNA hairpins. Because the capping groups in the hairpins can remarkably influence the structure and flexibility of the pi stack, and therefore, the charge transfer rate, the question arises of whether the HT parameters obtained for hairpins may be(More)
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and experimental measurements of the stability of a novel pyrrolidinyl PNA binding to DNA (PNA x DNA) in both parallel and antiparallel configurations were carried out. For comparison, simulations were also performed for the DNA x DNA duplex. The conformations of the three simulated systems were found to retain(More)
We have carried out molecular-dynamics (MD) simulations on dimers of the positively charged laser dyes pyronine 6G (P6G) and rhodamine 6G (R6G) in aqueous solution, generating trajectories of 2.5 ns for various computational protocols. We discuss how the choice of atomic partial charges and the length of the trajectories affect the predicted structures of(More)
Molecular structures that direct charge transport in two or three dimensions possess some of the essential functionality of electrical switches and gates. We use theory, modeling, and simulation to explore the conformational dynamics of DNA three-way junctions (TWJs) that may control the flow of charge through these structures. Molecular dynamics(More)
In the present work we present a comprehensive study of the magneto-structural correlations of a series of ferromagnetic triply heterobridged Cu(II) dinuclear compounds containing [Cu(2)(mu-O(2)CR)(mu-OH)(mu-X)(L)(2)](2+) ions (where X = OH(2), Cl(-), OMe(-) and L = bpy, phen, dpyam) which have the particularity of being all ferromagnetic. The present(More)
DNA hairpin conjugates with a stilbenedicarboxamide (Sa) hole donor and a stilbenediether (Sd) hole acceptor are considered as model systems for studying charge recombination (CR) of excess charges in DNA. Using the method of thermodynamic integration, we estimated the relative free energies of this process in hairpins with three adenine:thymine pairs(More)
Five new triply bridged dinuclear Cu(II) compounds have been synthesized, and their magnetic properties have been measured and characterized. The magnetic coupling constants (J) of these compounds plus a previously structurally characterized compound of the same type have been derived by appropriate fitting of the experimentally measured molar(More)
