Nuclear Overhauser enhancements (NOEs) have been observed between some of the nonexchangeable protons of the self-complementary octanucleoside heptaphosphate d(G-G-T-A-T-A-C-C) in conditions under which duplex formation takes place. Comparison of inter- and intraresidue NOEs has made possible the assignment of all the aromatic and 1'- and 2'-ribosyl(More)
