    Guanine (G)-quadruplexes are of interest because of their presence in the telomere sequence and the oncogene promoter region. Their diffusion and change of structure, especially in high viscosity solutions, are important for understanding their dynamics. G-quadruplexes may have less effective...

    We have constructed models for a series of platinum-DNA adducts that represent the binding of two agents, [Pt2(DTBPA)Cl2](II) and [Pt2(TPXA)Cl2](II), to DNA via inter- and intra-strand cross-linking, and carried out molecular dynamics simulations and DNA conformational dynamics calculations. The...

    A comparative study on human telomeric DNA G-quadruplex binding of meso-5,10,15,20-tetrakis( N-methyl-4-pyridyl)porphyrin (TMPyP4) between its two salt forms, i.e., tetratosylate and tetrachloride, was conducted by using ESI-TOF-MS, UV-melting measurement, and molecular modeling methods. Besides...

    Guanine-rich sequences found in telomeres and oncogene promoters have the ability to form G-quadruplex structures. In this paper we describe the use of a virtual screening assay to search a database of FDA-approved compounds for compounds with the potential to bind G-quadruplex DNA. More than...
