X-ray structure of a lectin-bound DNA duplex containing an unnatural phenanthrenyl pair

Author affiliations

Abstract

DNA duplexes containing unnatural base-pair surrogates are attractive biomolecular nanomaterials with potentially beneficial photophysical or electronic properties. Herein we report the first X-ray structure of a duplex containing a phen-pair in the center of the double helix in a zipper like stacking arrangement.
