Solvent Viscosity Tunes DNA Folding
In work with implications for future studies on DNA folding into structures called G-quadruplexes, Nicholas V. Hud and coworkers at Georgia Tech have found that solvent viscosity can tune the kinetics and pathway of G-quadruplex structural transitions (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja303499m). Guanine-rich DNA sequences at chromosome ends, known as telomeres, can form . . .
