Ligand selectivity in stabilising tandem parallel folded G-quadruplex motifs in human telomeric DNA sequences Academic Article uri icon


  • Biophysical studies of ligand interactions with three human telomeric repeat sequences (d(AGGG(TTAGGG)n, n = 3, 7 and 11)) show that an oxazole-based 'click' ligand, which induces parallel folded quadruplexes, preferentially stabilises longer telomeric repeats providing evidence for selectivity in binding at the interface between tandem quadruplex motifs.
