Direct evidence for a bimorphic structure of a DNA-RNA hybrid, poly(rA).poly(dT), at high relative humidity.

Abstract

31P solid state nuclear magnetic resonances of highly oriented poly(rA).poly(dT) fibers demonstrated that this hybrid undergoes a conformational transition induced by hydration at about 90% relative humidity, namely, the hybrid has a single backbone conformation of the A family below 87% and two distinct conformations above 92% relative humidity. The… (More)
