Formation and Dissociation of the Interstrand i-Motif by the Sequences d(XnC 4Y m) Monitored with Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry.

Abstract

Formation and dissociation of the interstrand i-motifs by DNA with the sequence d(X(n)C(4)Y(m)) (X and Y represent thymine, adenine, or guanine, and n, m range from 0 to 2) are studied with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS), circular dichroism (CD), and UV spectrophotometry. The ion complexes detected in the gas phase and the melting… (More)
