The molecular structure of a DNA-triostin A complex.

The molecular structure of triostin A, a cyclic octadepsipeptide antibiotic, has been solved complexed to a DNA double helical fragment with the sequence CGTACG (C, cytosine; G, guanine; T, thymine; A, adenine). The two planar quinoxaline rings of triostin A bis intercalate on the minor groove of the DNA double helix surrounding the CG base pairs at either… (More)
