The orientation of mono(1,10-phenanthroline)copper(II), [Cu(phen)]2+, and the ternary complexes with amino acids, [Cu(phen)X(aa)]n+, where X(aa) stands for an alpha-amino acid, has been investigated by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectra of the complexes on DNA fibers. It has been revealed that these complexes bind to DNA with several different(More)
