Mercury–thymine interaction with a chair type G-quadruplex architecture

Author affiliations

Abstract

The T–Hg–T bond was utilized to cross-link two lateral loops of chair-type G-quadruplex DNA (G4-DNA) structures. Two out of five cross-linking geometries are able to increase the melting temperature and simultaneously reduce the polymorphism of the G4-DNA conformations.
