Water-soluble neutral cosolutes can be used to quantify biomolecular properties in the particular molecular environment occurring in a cell. We studied the conformation and the thermal stability of DNA and RNA structures in the presence of PEG [poly(ethylene glycol)] and smaller cosolutes of glycerol, ethylene glycol, 1,3-propanediol, 2-methoxyethanol, and… CONTINUE READING
