Hydroxyl-radical footprinting.

INTRODUCTIONThe hydroxyl-radical footprinting methodology has wide applications to studying protein-DNA interactions, as well as structural perturbations (e.g., bending) that occur in DNA during protein binding. Hydroxyl radicals cleave DNA by abstracting a hydrogen atom from C4 of the sugar in the minor groove. Protein binding over the minor groove… CONTINUE READING
