Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and circular dichroism (CD) techniques were used to investigate the physico-chemical properties of the quadruplexes formed by the two different truncations of human telomeric sequence d(TAGGGT) and d(AGGGT), where the adenines were substituted by 2′-deoxy-8-(hydroxyl)adenosine (A → A OH ). CD spectra show that the modified sequences are able to form parallel-stranded quadruplex structure. Analysis of the thermodynamic parameters reveals that the introduction of the modified adenine affects in different way the thermal stability of the [d(TAGGGT)] 4 and [d(AGGGT)] 4 quadruplexes.

Abstract

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and circular dichroism (CD) techniques were used to investigate the physico-chemical properties of the quadruplexes formed by the two different truncations of human telomeric sequence d(TAGGGT) and d(AGGGT), where the adenines were substituted by 2′-deoxy-8-(hydroxyl)adenosine (A → A OH ). CD spectra show that the modified sequences are able to form parallel-stranded quadruplex structure. Analysis of the thermodynamic parameters reveals that the introduction of the modified adenine affects in different way the thermal stability of the [d(TAGGGT)] 4 and [d(AGGGT)] 4 quadruplexes.
