TY - JOUR. T1 - Identification of a second DNA binding site in the human Rad52 protein. AU - Kagawa, Wataru. AU - Kagawa, Ako. AU - Saito, Kengo. AU - Ikawa, Shukuko. AU - Shibata, Takehiko. AU - Kurumizaka, Hitoshi. AU - Yokoyama, Shigeyuki. PY - 2008/8/29. Y1 - 2008/8/29. N2 - Rad52 plays essential roles in homology-dependent double-strand break repair. Various studies have established the functions of Rad52 in Rad51-dependent and Rad51-independent repair processes. However, the precise molecular mechanisms of Rad52 in these processes remain unknown. In the present study we have identified a novel DNA binding site within Rad52 by a structure-based alanine scan mutagenesis. This site is closely aligned with the putative single-stranded DNA binding site determined previously. Mutations in this site impaired the ability of the Rad52-single-stranded DNA complex to form a ternary complex with double-stranded DNA and subsequently catalyze the formation of D-loops. We found that Rad52 introduces ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Intermediate tunnelling-hopping regime in DNA charge transport. AU - Xiang, Limin. AU - Palma, Julio L.. AU - Bruot, Christopher. AU - Mujica, Vladimiro. AU - Ratner, Mark A.. AU - Tao, Nongjian. PY - 2015. Y1 - 2015. N2 - Charge transport in molecular systems, including DNA, is involved in many basic chemical and biological processes, and its understanding is critical if they are to be used in electronic devices. This important phenomenon is often described as either coherent tunnelling over a short distance or incoherent hopping over a long distance. Here, we show evidence of an intermediate regime where coherent and incoherent processes coexist in double-stranded DNA. We measure charge transport in single DNA molecules bridged to two electrodes as a function of DNA sequence and length. In general, the resistance of DNA increases linearly with length, as expected for incoherent hopping. However, for DNA sequences with stacked guanine-cytosine (GC) base pairs, a periodic ...

Reddy et al. 162-164 24 Artificial DNA: Methods and Applications This reagent is compatible with benzoyl and isobutyryl protected deoxyadenosine and deoxyguanosine nucleosides but cannot be used with N4-benzoyl protected deoxycytidine since unwanted alkylation occurs.

Gene regulation requires highly specific interactions between proteins and their DNA binding sites. This high level of binding specificity in protein-DNA readout is achieved through the recognition of both linear sequence (base readout) and three-dimensio
S phase starts when the restriction checkpoint of the G1 phase is passed. Then, two important things happen: replication of DNA and duplication of centrioles (in animal cells). DNA replication DNA is made up of two single strands of deoxyribonucleotides or bases. The two single DNA strands are joined together by hydrogen bonds established by complementary bases (adenine-thymine, cytosine-guanine), that gives a helical double DNA strand. The two single DNA strands are oriented in an anti-parallel manner. That is, the 3 end of one of the strands is close to the 5 end of the other strand, so that there are 3 and 5 ends of single strands in every end of the double strand. For DNA replication, the two single strands become separated after breaking the hydrogen bonds so that both single strands may be replicated. Replication of DNA does not start from just one point, this would take too long. Instead, there are many replication origins, which are sites where replication starts at about the same ...
N2 - Triplex DNA is implicated in a wide range of biological activities, including regulation of gene expression and genomic instability leading to cancer. The tumor suppressor p53 is a central regulator of cell fate in response to different type of insults. Sequence and structure specific modes of DNA recognition are core attributes of the p53 protein. The focus of this work is the structure-specific binding of p53 to DNA containing triplex-forming sequences in vitro and in cells and the effect on p53-driven transcription. This is the first DNA binding study of full-length p53 and its deletion variants to both intermolecular and intramolecular T.A.T triplexes. We demonstrate that the interaction of p53 with intermolecular T.A.T triplex is comparable to the recognition of CTG-hairpin non-B DNA structure. Using deletion mutants we determined the C-terminal DNA binding domain of p53 to be crucial for triplex recognition. Furthermore, strong p53 recognition of intramolecular T.A.T triplexes ...

We analyzed the structural behavior of DNA complexed with regulatory proteins and the nucleosome core particle (NCP). The three-dimensional structures of almost 25 thousand dinucleotide steps from more than 500 sequentially non-redundant crystal structures were classified by using DNA structural alphabet CANA (Conformational Alphabet of Nucleic Acids) and associations between ten CANA letters and sixteen dinucleotide sequences were investigated. The associations showed features discriminating between specific and non-specific binding of DNA to proteins. Important is the specific role of two DNA structural forms, A-DNA, and BII-DNA, represented by the CANA letters AAA and BB2: AAA structures are avoided in non-specific NCP complexes, where the wrapping of the DNA duplex is explained by the periodic occurrence of BB2 every 10.3 steps. In both regulatory and NCP complexes, the extent of bending of the DNA local helical axis does not influence proportional representation of the CANA alphabet letters, namely
Cytosolic DNA stimulates innate immune responses, including type I interferons (IFN), which have antiviral and immunomodulatory activities. Cyclic GMP‐AMP synthase (cGAS) recognizes cytoplasmic DNA and signals via STING to induce IFN production. Despite the importance of DNA in innate immunity, the nature of the DNA that stimulates IFN production is not well described. Using low DNA concentrations, we show that dsDNA induces IFN in a length‐dependent manner. This is observed over a wide length‐span of DNA, ranging from the minimal stimulatory length to several kilobases, and is fully dependent on cGAS irrespective of DNA length. Importantly, in vitro studies reveal that long DNA activates recombinant human cGAS more efficiently than short DNA, showing that length‐dependent DNA recognition is an intrinsic property of cGAS independent of accessory proteins. Collectively, this work identifies long DNA as the molecular entity stimulating the cGAS pathway upon cytosolic DNA challenge such as ...

DNA strands across human beings are very similar, but there is a correlation between the discrepancies between DNA sequences and phenotypic conditions such as cancer or heart disease. Because DNA is so small, and has so many components, it is not reasonable to simply look through the entire strand for the sequence of interest. This report used a technique that amplified specific DNA strands which is called Polymerase Chain Reaction or PCR. This technique uses a primer that identifies and replicates a specific Single Nuleotide Polymorphism(SNP), if present. For this to work, the DNA strand and primer need to go through a cycle of temperature shifts that allow the DNA to replicate. The steps are denaturing, annealing and extension. The denaturing process happens when the system is heated to the point where the DNA strands are changed into single strands. After this the annealing step involved cooling the DNA strand and reconstructing of the double stranded DNA. Extension then takes place which is ...

Additionally, there are several protein families that change the ...
While DNA is known as the genetic material that codes for information that leads to protein synthesis, the fact is that not all DNA codes for proteins. The human genome contains a lot of DNA that does not code for protein or for anything at all. Much of this DNA is involved with gene regulation.

In gene-centered yeast one-hybrid assays, two types of DNA baits are used to identify interacting TFs: single copy C. elegans genomic sequences such as gene promoters, and artificial baits such as (putative) cis-regulatory DNA elements [5]. EDGEdb contains information about i) DNA bait sequences and genomic coordinates; ii) all 934 predicted C. elegans TFs [19], i.e. their DNA binding domain, and, where available, dimerization partners and consensus binding sites; iii) protein-DNA interactions between DNA baits and TFs; and iv) where available, the transcriptional consequences of such protein-DNA interactions (see below). In total, the database contains 605 protein-DNA interactions between 115 C. elegans gene promoters and 176 TFs. In addition, the database contains protein-DNA interactions for 3 short DNA sequences that were either found by us or by other groups (referred to as artificial baits, see e.g. ZTF-2 or DAF-12). Finally, the database contains 24 TF protein-protein dimer ...

DNA in vivo is principally found in a highly condensed state within chromosomes, viruses, and bacterial nucleoids often packaged via multivalent cations. Despite the critical role that the condensed DNA in chromosomes plays on gene expression and DNA replication within eukaryotic cells, the dominant molecular forces which drive this condensation are not fully understood. In recent years, new theories have been proposed to explain DNA-DNA attractive forces which lead to condensation but experimental data capable of distinguishing between these theories has been sorely lacking. We have used osmotic stress coupled with small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) to probe the magnitude and dependence of the thermodynamic forces between condensed DNA helices.\\\\ This talk will be divided between two topics. In the first part, I will discuss force measurements on condensed DNA arrays in the presence of cations ranging from simple ions to complex real proteins. Using homologous polycations, we have measured ...
First, the effects of intervening mismatches on DNA structure, dynamics and DNA charge transport reactivity is examined. The pi?stacked DNA base pairs mediate charge transport chemistry over long molecular distances in a reaction that is exquisitely sensitive to DNA sequence dependent conformation and dynamics. To examine the long-range charge transport as a function of intervening base mismatches, a series of DNA oligonucleotides were synthesized that incorporate a ruthenium intercalator, [Ru(phen)(bpy?)(dppz)]2+ (phen = 1,10 phenanthroline; bpy = 4-butyric acid-4-methylbipyridine; dppz = dipyrido[3,2-a:2,3-c]phenazine) linked covalently to the 5 terminus of one strand and containing two 5-GG-3 sites in the complementary strand. Single base mismatches were introduced between the two guanine doublet steps, and the efficiency of transport through the mismatches was determined through measurements of the ratio of oxidative damage at the guanine doublets distal versus proximal to the ...

Since the famous discovery of the structure of the DNA double helix, referred to as the canonical, right-handed B-form DNA by Watson and Crick, experimental evidence has revealed the existence of more than a dozen alternative (or non-B) DNA secondary structures. These include, among others, stem-loops (also known as cruciforms or hairpins), triplexes or H-DNA, quadruplexes or G4 DNA, A-DNA, and Z-DNA The important role of DNA secondary structures in various genomic processes is documented experimentally in genomes of many organisms from bacteria to humans. It was shown that stem-loop structures can function as terminators, attenuators, promoter and recognition elements, while cruciform structures play roles in DNA replication, and genetic instability. Triplexes (H-DNA) have been shown to play roles in transcriptional repression, recombination, and genetic instability. Quadruplexes can regulate DNA replication, gene expression, and telomere maintenance. A-DNA can play an essential role in

The discovery of the B-form structure of DNA by Watson and Crick led to an explosion of research on nucleic acids in the fields of biochemistry, biophysics, and genetics. Powerful techniques were developed to reveal a myriad of different structural conformations that change B-DNA as it is transcribed, replicated, and recombined and as sister chromosomes are moved into new daughter cell compartments during cell division. This article links the original discoveries of superhelical structure and molecular topology to non-B form DNA structure and contemporary biochemical and biophysical techniques. The emphasis is on the power of plasmids for studying DNA structure and function. The conditions that trigger the formation of alternative DNA structures such as left-handed Z-DNA, inter- and intra-molecular triplexes, triple-stranded DNA, and linked catenanes and hemicatenanes are explained. The DNA dynamics and topological issues are detailed for stalled replication forks and for torsional and structural

Molecular wires show promise in nanoscale electronics, but the synthesis of uniform, long conductive molecules is a significant challenge. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of precise length, by contrast, is synthesized easily, but its conductivity over the distances required for nanoscale devices has not been explored. Here we demonstrate DNA charge transport (CT) over 34 nm in 100-mer monolayers on gold. Multiplexed gold electrodes modified with 100-mer DNA yield sizable electrochemical signals from a distal, covalent Nile Blue redox probe. Significant signal attenuation upon incorporation of a single base-pair mismatch demonstrates that CT is DNA-mediated. Efficient cleavage of these 100-mers by a restriction enzyme indicates that the DNA adopts a native conformation accessible to protein binding. Similar electron-transfer rates measured through 100-mer and 17-mer monolayers are consistent with rate-limiting electron tunnelling through the saturated carbon linker. This DNA-mediated CT distance of 34 nm
Molecular dynamics (MD) studies of several radiation originated lesions on the DNA molecules are presented. The pyrimidine lesions (cytosinyl radical, thymine dimer, thymine glycol) and purine lesion (8-oxoguanine) were subjected to the MD simulations for several hundred picoseconds using MD simulation code AMBER 5.0 (4.0). The simulations were performed for fully dissolved solute molecules in water. Significant structural changes in the DNA double helical structure were observed in all cases which may be categorized as: a) the breaking of hydrogen bonds network between complementary bases and resulted opening of the double helix (cytosinyl, radical, 8-oxoguanine); b) the sharp bending of the DNA helix centered at the lesion site (thymine dimer, thymine glycol); and c) the flippingout of adenine on the strand complementary to the lesion (8-oxoguanine). These changes related to the overall collapsing of the double helical structure around the lesion, are expected to facilitate the docking of the ...

DNA molecule. Computer artwork of the molecular structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). The DNA molecule is composed of two strands twisted into a double helix. Each strand consists of an outer sugar-phosphate backbone (red) with nucleotide bases attached (blue). There are four different nucleotide bases. It is the varying sequence of these four bases along a DNA helix that forms the genetic code for that individual. A typical DNA molecule can contain a sequence that is many millions of bases long. The genetic code in DNA is the basis of all life on Earth. - Stock Image G110/1128
The DNA samples are then loaded into wells of an agarose gel and electrophoresed, along with loading dyes (see procedure below). An electrical field applied across the gel causes the DNA fragments in the samples to move from their origin (a sample well) through the gel matrix toward the positive electrode. Small DNA fragments migrate faster than larger ones, so restriction fragments of differing sizes separate into distinct bands during electrophoresis. The loading dyes are of 2 different sizes, corresponding to very small DNA fragments and very large DNA fragments. They can be seen as the electrophoresis progresses, and they form a bracket in between which the DNA fragments are moving. Otherwise, one cannot tell how far the DNA fragments have moved through the agar. The characteristic number and pattern of bands produced by each restriction enzyme are made visible by staining with a compound that binds to the DNA molecule--- methylene blue.. ...

Tumor suppressor protein p53 possesses two DNA-binding sites. One that is located within its core domain is responsible for sequence-specific DNA binding of the protein, non-specific binding to internal segments of single- or double-stranded DNA, and to certain kinds of non-B DNA structures. The other that is contained in the C-terminus of the protein binds to damaged DNA. Binding of active, latent, and in vitro-activated p53 protein to DNA fragments modified by antitumor cisplatin was studied using electrophoretic mobility shift assay in agarose gels and immunoblotting analysis. We found that both latent and active p53 forms bound to random sequences of DNA globally modified by cisplatin with a higher affinity than to unmodified DNA. Interestingly, the latent form exhibited a more pronounced selectivity for platinated DNA than the active p53. Consistently with this observation, the preference of the latent form for platinated DNA decreased as a consequence of the activation of latent p53 by ...

Individual PREP1 and PBX1 are homeodomain transcriptional elements, whose biochemical and structural characterization hasnt yet been defined fully. of eukaryotic DNA-binding protein that control transcription of a wide selection of developmentally essential genes [1]. These protein talk about a 60 amino acidity DNA-binding domains which includes been conserved in series, system and framework of DNA-binding.

PBX1 includes a nuclear localization indication and holds PREP1 in to the nucleus while subsequently PREP1 stops PBX1 nuclear export ...
ChiP (Chromosome Immunoprecipitation) is a technique where DNA binding proteins, like transcription factors, can be localized to regions of a DNA molecule. We can use this method to identify which DNA sequences control expression and regulation for diverse genes. In the ChIP procedure, cells are treated with a reversible cross-linking agent to fix proteins to other proteins that are nearby, as well as the chromosomal DNA where theyre bound. The DNA is then purified and broken into smaller chunks by digestion or shearing and antibodies are used to precipitate any protein-DNA complexes that contain their target antigen. After the immunoprecipitation step, unbound DNA fragments are washed away, the bound DNA fragments are released, and their sequences are analyzed to determine the DNA sequences that the proteins were bound to. Only few years ago, this procedure was much more complicated than it is today, for example, the fragments had to be cloned before they could be sequenced. When microarrays ...

For efficient DNA cleavage, the Type III restriction endonuclease EcoP15I communicates with two inversely oriented recognition sites in an ATP-dependent process.
After immunoprecipitation, the protein-DNA cross-links are reversed and the DNA is purified. The enrichment of a particular DNA sequence or sequences can then be detected by a number of different methods.. Standard PCR methods are often employed to identify the DNA sequences or regions of the genome associated with a particular protein or histone modification (1,2). PCR is used to measure the relative abundance of a particular DNA sequence enriched by a protein-specific immunoprecipitation versus an immunoprecipitation with a non-specific antibody control. PCR products are run on an agarose or acrylamide gel to facilitate quantification, and the level of enrichment of the DNA sequence is determined relative to the total amount of input DNA (percent of input). The level of enrichment can also be expressed as fold enrichment above background (enrichment relative to that of the non-specific antibody control). Real-Time PCR provides a more accurate, gel-free system for the quantification of DNA ...
Conceptual computer illustration of the DNA double helix together with a graphic representation of an autoradiograph display. The pattern of the DNA autoradiograph bands is unique to each individual, but some bands are shared by related people, such as a parent & child. DNA fingerprints can be used to prove conclusively whether people are related. - Stock Image C010/5265

BioAssay record AID 664269 submitted by ChEMBL: Binding affinity to c-myc quadruplex DNA FPu18T assessed as change in melting temperature at 2 uM by FRET-melting assay.
Codexis will use its enzyme evolution technology to improve the DNA polymerase enzymes Molecular Assemblies uses in enzyme-based DNA synthesis. Molecular Assemblies, one of C&ENs 10 Start-Ups to Watch in 2018, says its approach creates longer strands of DNA than current phosphoramidite chemistry does. Codexis will buy $1 million of Moleculars stock and could accumulate an ownership stake of over 10%.. ...
Other articles where Double helix is discussed: James Watson: …a molecular model for DNA-a double helix, which can be likened to a spiraling staircase or a twisting ladder. The DNA double helix consists of two intertwined sugar-phosphate chains, with the flat base pairs forming the steps between them. Watson and Cricks model also shows how the DNA molecule could…
ananyo writes Scientists have demonstrated that several lab-made variants of DNA can store and transmit information much like the genuine article. DNA is made up of nucleic acid bases — labelled A, C, G and T — on a backbone made of phosphates and the sugar deoxyribose. The artificial p...

The RNA I isolated earlier today was subjected to DNase treatment using the Turbo DNA-free Kit (Invitrogen), following the manufacturers standard protocol.. After DNase inactivation treatment, the RNA was transferred (recovered ~19uL from each samples) to a clear, low-profile PCR plate.. The plate layout is here (Google Sheet): 20170309_RLO_viability_DNased_RNA_plate_layout. The samples will be subjected to qPCR to assess the presence/absence of residual gDNA. The plate of DNased RNA was stored @ -80C in the original box that the water filters were stored in.. An overview of the experiment and the various treatments are viewable in the Viability Trial 2″ tab of Lisas spreadsheet (Google Sheet): RLO Viability & ID50. ...
A new study to be presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in February 2020 will report on the generation of the worlds first artificially created bacterial genome using a digital design algorithm along with the synthesis of DNA building blocks on a large scale. This genome takes form by chemical rather than template-based synthesis. The research is published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
