deposit-license Drescher, Malte Structural Characterization of Quadruplex DNA with in-cell EPR approaches Holder, Isabelle T. Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry ; 21 (2013), 20. - S. 6156-6161 Guanosine-rich DNA sequences have the potential to adopt four-stranded conformations termed quadruplexes. The chromosomes of higher organisms are capped by so-called telomeres that are composed of repeats of the sequence TTAGGG. Up to 200 nucleotides of the G-rich strand form an overhang that is suspected to fold into intramolecular G-quadruplexes. Since induction of quadruplexes at the telomeres results in anti-proliferative effects, the intracellular structure of G-quadruplexes is of high interest as an anti-cancer drug target. Here we give a perspective on the elucidation of DNA sequence folds by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) distance measurements. The technique complements X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy, as it can be applied in noncrystalline states, is not intrinsically limited by the size of the bio-macromolecular complex, and is able to analyze flexible structures or coexisting DNA conformation. eng Hartig, Jörg S.
