Abstract

The three oligodeoxyribonucleotides (ODNs) a-c, having the telomeric repeat d(TTAGGG) 4 sequence and incorporating γ-hydroxypropano deoxyguanosine at different positions, were synthesized. Gel electrophoresis and CD analyses indicated that the ODNs assume monomolecular quadruplex structures in Na + and in K + buffers. The T m values, obtained by CD melting experiments, showed that the presence of the acrolein-dG adduct into the ODN b decreases the thermal stability of the monomolecular quadruplex structure in Na + solution, whereas for a and c no significant effect could be detected in the same experimental conditions. On the contrary, all ODNs a-d show the same behaviour in K + buffer. These findings are briefly discussed.
