Discrimination between BI and BII conformational substates of B-DNA based on sugar-base interproton distances.


Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of four water-solvated DNA duplexes were used to generate a database of approximately 27000 dinucleotide conformations. Analyzing this database, we investigated the relationship between so-called BI-BII transitions and short-range interproton distances. Four H-H distances were found particularly sensitive to BI-BII… (More)
