A number of trinucleotide sequences in DNA can form compact and stable hairpin loops that may have significance for DNA replication and transcription. The conformational analysis of these motifs is important for an understanding of the function and design of nucleic acid structures. Extensive conformational searches have been performed on three… CONTINUE READING
