Ion beam therapy is one of the most progressive methods in cancer treatment. Studies of the water radiolysis process show that the most long-living species that occur in the medium of a biological cell under the action of ionizing irradiation are hydrogen peroxide ( $$\hbox {H}_2\hbox {O}_2$$ H 2 O 2 ) molecules. But the role of $$\hbox {H}_2\hbox {O}_2$$ H 2 O 2 molecules in the DNA deactivation of cancer cells in ion beam therapy has not been determined yet. In the present paper, the…

The competitive interaction of hydrogen peroxide molecules with nucleic bases in a pair on the different stages of genetic information transfer is studied and Atom-atomic potential functions method is used for the calculations and it is shown, that some configurations of AT and GC complementary pairs are stabilized much better by H$_2$O$-2$ molecule compared to water molecule.

The calculations of the low-frequency spectra show that for the DNA with metal cations Na+ , K+ , Rb+ and Cs+ the frequency of ion-phosphate vibrations decreases from 174 to 96cm^-1 as the counterion mass increases, proving suggestion about the existence of the ion- phosphate lattice around the DNA double helix.
