NMR study has shown that DNA oligonucleotide d(G(3)T(4)G(4)) adopts an asymmetric bimolecular G-quadruplex structure in solution. The structure of d(G(3)T(4)G(4))(2) is composed of three G-quartets, overhanging G11 residue and G3, which is part of the loop. Unique structural feature of d(G(3)T(4)G(4))(2) fold is the orientation of the two loops. Thymidine(More)
Multinuclear NMR study has demonstrated that G-quadruplex adopted by d(G3T4G4) exhibits two cation binding sites between three of its G-quartets. Titration of tighter binding K+ ions into the solution of d(G3T4G4)2 folded in the presence of 15NH4+ ions uncovered a mixed mono-K+-mono-15NH4+ form that represents intermediate in the conversion of di-15NH4+(More)
The G-rich 11-mer oligonucleotide d(G(4)T(4)G(3)) forms a bimolecular G-quadruplex in the presence of sodium ions with a topology that is distinct from the folds of the closely related and well-characterized sequences d(G(4)T(4)G(4)) and d(G(3)T(4)G(3)). The solution structure of d(G(4)T(4)G(3))(2) has been determined using a combination of NMR spectroscopy(More)
We have recently communicated that DNA oligonucleotide d(G(3)T(4)G(4)) forms a dimeric G-quadruplex in the presence of K(+) ions [J. Am. Chem. Soc.2003, 125, 7866-7871]. The high-resolution NMR structure of d(G(3)T(4)G(4))(2) G-quadruplex exhibits G-quadruplex core consisting of three stacked G-quartets. The two overhanging G3 and G11 residues are located(More)
A variable temperature-dependent H NMR conformational analysis of JHH coupling constants and NOE enhancements of a series of 8-aza-3-deaza modified guanine nucleosides 2 and 4–8 has been performed in DMSO-d6 and the results compared to those for natural nucleosides dG (1) and G (3). 8-Aza-3-deaza nucleobase modification leads to the stabilization of N-type(More)
