Here, we present results of extensive molecular dynamics simulations of DNA oligomers at different temperatures. We show that internal basepair conformations are strongly temperature-dependent, particularly in the stretch and opening degrees of freedom whose harmonic fluctuations can be considered the initial steps of the DNA melting pathway. The basepair step elasticity contains a weaker, but detectable, entropic contribution in the roll, tilt, and rise degrees of freedom. To extend the validity of our results to the temperature interval beyond the standard melting transition relevant to extremophiles, we estimate the effects of superhelical stress on the stability of the basepair steps, as computed from the Benham model. We predict that although the average twist decreases with temperature in vitro, the stabilizing external torque in vivo results in an increase of ∼1°/bp (or a superhelical density of Δσ ≃ +0.03) in the interval 0-100°C. In the final step, we show that the experimentally observed apparent bending persistence length of torsionally unconstrained DNA can be calculated from a hybrid model that accounts for the softening of the double helix and the presence of transient denaturation bubbles. Although the latter dominate the behavior close to the melting transition, the inclusion of helix softening is important around standard physiological temperatures.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Theodorakopoulos, Nikos</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Meyer, Sam</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/41829"/> <dc:contributor>Lavery, Richard</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Everaers, Ralf</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2013-10-15</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Lavery, Richard</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Temperature Dependence of the DNA Double Helix at the Nanoscale : Structure, Elasticity, and Fluctuations</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Peyrard, Michel</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Everaers, Ralf</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:contributor>Meyer, Sam</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Peyrard, Michel</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-03-20T09:50:18Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
