Structural arrangement of DNA constrained by a cross-linker.


Self-complementary cross-linked oligonucleotides with a disulfide linkage were designed and synthesized. Double helix and hairpin structures were controlled using the different diastereochemistry of phosphoramidate where the cross-linker was introduced. The structures of the strained cross-linked DNAs were estimated by gel mobility, circular dichroism spectra, and melting profiles.
