Polarized electronic absorption spectra of the (100) face of single crystals of the Z-form double helical duplex of d(m5CGUAm5CG) have been obtained from Kramers-Kronig analysis of reflection data. The c crystallographic axis is parallel to the helix axis and shows but weak absorption. The b axis is perpendicular to the helix axis and shows a structureless absorption band centered at 270 nm with an oscillator strength of 0.26. Calculations of the crystal spectra utilizing available transition… CONTINUE READING
