Experimental and density functional theory (DFT) studies on the interactions of Ru(II) polypyridyl complexes with the RAN triplex poly(U)˙poly(A)*poly(U).


There is renewed interest in investigating triple helices because these novel structures have been implicated as a possible means of controlling cellular processes by endogenous or exogenous mechanisms. Due to the Hoogsteen base pairing, triple helices are, however, thermodynamically less stable than the corresponding duplexes. The poor stability of triple… (More)
