Radicals in 5-methylcytosine induced by ionizing radiation. Electron magnetic resonance for structural and mechanistic analyses.

Abstract

Single crystals of 5-methylcytosine hemihydrate and 5-methylcytosine hydrochloride were X-irradiated and studied at 10 K and at higher temperatures using X- and K-band EPR, ENDOR and EIE spectroscopy. In the hemihydrate crystals, four radicals were identified at 10 K, one of them being the recently reported N1-deprotonated one-electron oxidation product… (More)
