Peptides which bind in the minor groove of DNA as antiparallel side-by-side dimers can be linked head-to-tail to afford a new class of hairpin oligopeptides with enhanced sequence specificity for DNA. Four hexapeptides were synthesized wherein the terminal amine and carboxyl groups of tris(N-methylpyrrolecarboxamide) (P3) and(More)
The designed peptide 1-methylimidazole-2-carboxamide netropsin (2-ImN) binds specifically to the sequence 5'-TGACT-3'. Direct evidence from NMR spectroscopy is presented that this synthetic ligand binds DNA as a 2:1 complex, which reveals that the structure is an antiparallel dimer in the minor groove of DNA. This is in contrast to the 1:1 complexes usually(More)
