Crystallization and preliminary X-ray analysis of a PNA-DNA complex

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Peptide nucleic acids (PNAs) are DNA mimics with a peptide backbone. PNAs are being intensely investigated owing to a potential as gene-targeted drugs. A PNA (H-GTAGATCACT-NH2)-DNA (5'-AGTGATCTAC-3') complex has been crystallized in a tetragonal space group P4(1)22 with cell dimensions a = b = 79.8, c = 99.9 angstrum. The crystals diffract to about 5 angstrum resolution.
