Right-handed alternating DNA conformation: poly(dA-dT) adopts the same dinucleotide repeat with cesium, tetraalkylammonium, and 3 alpha, 5 beta, 17 beta-dipyrrolidinium steroid dimethiodide cations in aqueous solution.


We demonstrate that poly(dA-dT) can adopt two conformations in solution, with the relative proportions dependent on the nature and concentration of the counter ion and cationic ligands. The synthetic DNA exhibits a dinucleotide repeat conformation on addition of CsF and Me4NCl at molar concentrations, with the NMR spectral changes reflecting a common… (More)
