Solution structure and dynamics of the A-T tract DNA decamer duplex d(GGTAATTACC)2: implications for recognition by minor groove binding drugs.


The structure of the DNA decamer duplex d(GGTAATTACC)(2) has been determined using NMR distance restraints and molecular dynamics simulations of 500 ps to 1 ns in aqueous solution at 300 K. Using both canonical A and canonical B starting structures [root-mean-square deviation (RMSD) 4.6 A; 1 A=10(-10) m], with and without experimental restraints, we show… (More)
