    Abstract A synthetic DNA triple helix sequence was formed by annealing a pyrimidinic 21 met single strand sequence onto the complementary purinic sequence centred on a 27 met duplex DNA. Melting of the third strand was monitored by UV spectrophotometry in the temperature range 10-90 Celsius. The...
