Characterization of nucleobase-amino acid stacking interactions utilized by a DNA repair enzyme.

Abstract

The present work characterizes the gas-phase stacking interactions between four aromatic amino acid residues (histidine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan) and adenine or 3-methyladenine due to the proposed utilization of these interactions by enzymes that repair DNA alkylation damage. The MP2 potential energy surfaces of the stacked dimers are… (More)
