Abstract Geometrical and electronic structures of uracil nucleobase pair containing Ag I ions have been studied theoretically and computationally. Four stable conformers are expected to co-exist under normal experimental conditions, and transition state structures among the conformers are also presented. The replacement of protons with Ag I ions increases the size of the mismatch nucleobase pairs and leads to a better match of the size stabilizing the duplex. From the calculated infrared, Raman… CONTINUE READING
