Interactions between meso-tetrakis ( 4-( N-methylpyri-diumyl ) ) porphyrin TMPyP 4 and DNA G-quadruplex of telomeric repeated sequence TTAGGG

The binding properties between meso-tetrakis(4-(N-methylpyridiumyl))porphyrin (TMPyP4) and the parallel DNA G-quadruplex (G4) of telomeric repeated sequence 5′-TTAGGG-3′ have been characterized by means of circular dichroism, steady-state absorption, steady-state fluorescence and picosecond time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopies. The binding constant and… CONTINUE READING
