Effect of structural dynamics on charge transfer in DNA hairpins.

Abstract

We present a theoretical study of the positive charge transfer in stilbene-linked DNA hairpins containing only AT base pairs using a tight-binding model that includes a description of structural fluctuations. The parameters are the charge transfer integral between neighboring units and the site energies. Fluctuations in these parameters were studied by a… (More)
