The solution structure of an oligonucleotide duplex containing a 2'-deoxyadenosine-3-(2-hydroxyethyl)- 2'-deoxyuridine base pair determined by NMR and molecular dynamics studies.

Determination of the solution structure of the duplex d(GCAAGTC(HE)AAAACG)*d(CGTTTTAGACTTGC) containing a 3-(2-hydroxyethyl)-2'-deoxyuridine*deoxyadenine (HE*A) base pair is reported. The three-dimensional solution structure, determined starting from 512 models via restrained molecular mechanics using inter-proton distances and torsion angles, converged to… CONTINUE READING
