Caesium fluoride-induced changes in the c.d. spectra of synthetic DNA fragments.

Abstract

Ten DNA fragments containing self-complementary alternating sequences of adenine and thymine differing in length and the starting nucleotide were studied by c.d. spectroscopy. It was found that d(TATATATA) but not d(ATATATAT), d(TATATA), d(CTATATAG) or (dT-dA)20 isomerized into the unusual X-DNA double helix at molar concentrations of CsF in solution. But… (More)
