The calculated free energy effects of 5-methyl cytosine on the B to Z transition in DNA.


We have examined the free energy effects of 5-methylation of cytosine on the B in equilibrium Z conformational equilibrium in DNA. Free energy differences were calculated using the free energy perturbation approach, which uses an easily derived equation from classical statistical mechanics to relate the free energy difference between two states to the… (More)
