Potential energy calculations of the DNA duplex dimeric subunit show that the double helix may be bent in the direction of minor and major grooves much more easily than in other directions. It is found that the total winding angle of DNA decreases upon such bending. A new model for DNA folding in the nucleosome is proposed on the basis of these findings(More)
A 14 nt DNA sequence 5'-AGAATGTGGCAAAG-3' from the zinc finger repeat of the human KRAB zinc finger protein gene ZNF91 bearing the intercalator 2-methoxy,6-chloro,9-amino acridine (Acr) attached to the sugar-phosphate backbone in various positions has been shown to form a specific triple helix (triplex) with a 16 bp hairpin (intramolecular) or a(More)
The human mu opioid receptor (MOR) plays a central role in mediating the effects of opioids, both endogenous and exogenous. Epidemiological studies have shown that addiction in general, and especially opiate addiction, has a heritable component. Clinical and laboratory studies suggest that the MOR gene may contribute to the heritable component of(More)
Oligonucleotide microchips are manufactured by immobilizing presynthesized oligonucleotides within 0.1 x 0.1 x 0.02 mm or 1 x 1 x 0.02 mm polyacrylamide gel pads arranged on the surface of a microscope slide. The gel pads are separated from each other by hydrophobic glass spacers and serve as a kind of 'microtest tube' of 200 pl or 20 nl volume,(More)
The thermal fluctuations of a regular double helix belonging to the B-family were studied by means of atom-atomic potentials method. The winding angle fluctuation was found to be 2.4 degrees for poly(dA):poly(dT) and 3.0 degrees for poly(dG):poly(dC). The reasonable agreement of these estimations with those obtained experimentally reveals the essential role(More)
To expand the informational capabilities of molecular genetic research, on the biological microchips, new indotricarbocyanine dyes that fluoresce in the near infrared (IR) spectral region have been synthesized. The developed IR dyes were studied using a biochip-based test system for detection of mutations in the BRCA1/BRCA2 and CHECK2 genes associated with(More)
Temperature dependence of UV and CD spectra of the oligonucleotide 5'-(dT)10-L-(dT)10-L-(dA)10-3' [tripl(ATT)] [L = -pO(CH2CH2O)3p-] in phosphate buffer, pH 7, at various NaCl concentrations and in the presence or absence of 0.01 M MgCl2 has been studied. At low oligonucleotide concentrations (2.2 x 10(-5) M nucleotide concentration) all structural(More)
The aim of this work was to compare different speckle reduction techniques. It was shown that the use of devices based on liquid crystals only leads to partial reduction of speckle contrast. In quantitative luminescent microscopy an application of the mechanical devices when a laser beam is spread within the field of view turned out to be more efficient.(More)
