Cyclic PNAs targeting the HIV-1 TAR RNA loop have been synthesized following a convenient solid-phase strategy which allows on-resin cyclisation. UV-monitored thermal denaturation studies demonstrate that these cyclic PNAs are able to strongly interact with their TAR RNA target, very likely through the formation of a six-base pair stable complex, involving the TAR RNA loop.
ABSTRACT. We analysed a DNA sample from a father and child who were both heterozygous for a 7 base pair insertion in the MEST gene differentially-methylated promoter region, previously shown by PCR analysis of bisulphite-treated DNA to be on the methylated allele in the unaffected father and the unmethylated allele in the affected child. PCR from genomic DNA was then carried out using a commercial PCR kit with its recommended initial DNA denaturation step of 2 minutes. Subsequent sequence analysis showed that only the non-methylated allele had been amplified, the father appearing to be homozygous normal and the child appearing to have a homozygous 7 b.p. insertion. The PCR protocol was then modified in order to use a longer DNA denaturation stage prior to the addition of the polymerase enzyme. Upon doing so, both the methylated and non-methylated alleles were then identifiable by sequencing with the mutation appearing in its expected heterozygous form. These results highlight the fact that the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Localization of low-melting regions in phage T7 DNA. AU - Lyamichev, V. I.. AU - Panyutin, I. G.. AU - Cherny, D. I.. AU - Lyubchenko, Yu L.. PY - 1983/4/11. Y1 - 1983/4/11. N2 - Specific fragmentation of T7 DNA at glyoxal-fixed denatured regions by the S1 endonuclease followed by restriction analysis made it possible to localize four low-melting regions in phage T7 DNA. These regions have the following coordinates:0.5-1.2;14.8±0.3;46.3±0.5; 98.4±0.3 (in T7 DNA length units). The location of the low-melting regions was refined by means of electron-microscopic denaturation mapping and gel electrophoresis of partially denatured DNA. The obtained localization of the low-melting regions is consistent with the available data on the sequence of T7 DNA. The map of low-melting regions was compared with the genetic map of T7 DNA..

Within the framework of the Peyrard-Bishop model for DNA melting, sharp denaturation temperature profiles can currently be obtained only if anharmonic base-pair stacking interactions are considered. We show that, when solvent interactions are included, a sharp denaturation of the DNA double helix is obtained without the need for anharmonic nearest-neighbor interactions. Using the concept of pseudo-Schrodinger equations we discuss the analogy of these transition to quantum-mechanical tunneling, and in particular we show that the sharp transitions are similar to resonant tunneling..

One-dimensional thermodynamic instabilities are phase transitions, not prohibited by Landaus argument because the energy of the domain wall which separates the two phases is infinite. Whether they actually occur in a given system of particles must be demonstrated on a case-by-case basis by examining the properties of the corresponding singular transfer integral (TI) equation. The present work deals with the generic Peyrard-Bishop model of DNA denaturation. In the absence of exact statements about the spectrum of the singular TI equation, I use Gauss-Hermite quadratures to achieve a single-parameter-controlled approach to rounding effects; this allows me to employ finite-size scaling concepts in order to demonstrate that a phase transition occurs and to derive the critical exponents.

DNA denaturation is possibly one of the earliest problems in biophysics that grabbed the attention of statistical physicists. The nature of the folding/melting transition has been subject to debate since 60s until a breakthrough in the past decade mostly settled the question. We recently readdressed the problem for circular DNA (which has a topologically imposed, fixed linking number due to helicity) and found that the melting behavior is qualitatively different from that of the unconstrained DNA with freely dangling ends. In particular we argue, by generalizing the predominant theoretical model in this field, that the transition rigorously follows an "inverted" BEC scenario where a macroscopic loop appears at Tc and grows steadily with increasing temperature. ...

Silvestri, L. G. (Università Statale, Milan, Italy), and L. R. Hill. Agreement between deoxyribonucleic acid base composition and taxometric classification of gram-positive cocci. J. Bacteriol. 90:136-140. 1965.-It had been previously proposed, from taxometric analyses, that gram-positive, catalase-positive cocci be divided into two subgroups. Thirteen strains, representative of both subgroups, were examined for deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) base composition, determined from melting temperatures. Per cent GC (guanine + cytosine/total bases) values fell into two groups: 30.8 to 36.5% GC and 69 to 75% GC. Strains with low per cent GC values belonged to the Staphylococcus aureus-S. saprophyticus-S. lactis taxometric subgroups, and those with high per cent GC values belonged to the S. roseus-S. afermentans subgroup. The hypothetical nature of any classification is emphasized, and, in the present work, the hypothesis derived from taxometric analyses of division into two subgroups is confirmed by the ...
Vegetable oil has fatty acids with carbon chains from 12 to 18 carbons long. Animal fat can have fatty acids with more than 18 carbons long. Generally a longer chain fatty acid melts at a higher temperature. The methyl ester of palmitic acid (hexadecanoic acid) has 16 carbons in the fatty acid chain and melts at 28-34 degrees celcius. Methyl stearate (octadecanoic acid methyl ester) has 18 carbons in the fatty acid chain of carbon atoms and melts at 39.1 degrees celcius. Eicosanoic acid methyl ester (eicosanoic acid) has 20 carbon atoms in a straight chain and the methyl ester melts at 54.5 degrees centigrade. Since like dissolves like, part of the eicosanoic acid methyl ester will be in solution below the melting point temperature. When I made biodiesel out of swine lard, pig fat and beef grease when the liquid was at a cool room temperature some of the higher melting methyl esters crystallized out and precipitated out as white crystals. Animal fat and grease has drawbacks for use as cool or ...
It should be emphasized that the array of structures listed in Table 1 are but a point of departure. The competition dialysis method is completely general, and arrays of structures of particular interest can be designed as desired. The only limitations are that the structures be large enough to be retained by the dialysis tubing chosen for use, and that they are verified to be stable under the ionic conditions of the experiment. Essential quality control experiments to characterize nucleic acid samples were described in detail [41, 42] and include UV absorbance and circular dichroism spectroscopy, and thermal denaturation studies. Fig. 1 Schematic of the competition dialysis experiment. A schematic representation of the structures used is shown on the left. The center shows the simple experimental setup, a beaker containing the test ligand solution and the holder for the dialysis units. A schematic of the microdialysis unit is shown on the right Structural Selectivity of Drug-Nucleic Acid ...
A novel method for detecting and isolating DNA sequences commonly held by different DNA preparations or repeated or amplified within a complex genome has been provided. The DNA preparations of interest are digested with the same restriction enzyme and a portion of at least one preparation is labeled with 32 P. The labeled and unlabeled DNA preparations are combined and electrophoresed in an agarose gel. Following electrophoresis, the DNA is denatured in situ and allowed to reanneal within the gel so that homologous DNA sequences present within restriction fragments of the same size can reanneal. After reannealing, unhybridized single-stranded DNA is digested in situ followed by detection of the reannealed DNA by autoradiography. When labeled and unlabeled DNAs are derived from different DNA preparations, only the restriction fragments commonly held by these two preparations are detected. When a restriction digest of total eukaryotic DNA is reassociated in the gel by this procedure, repeated restriction
We report the hybridization properties of a novel artificial nucleic acid: acyclicl-threoninol nucleic acid (l-aTNA). l-aTNA formed a more stable duplex with DNA and RNA than either d-aTNA or serinol nucleic acid (SNA) as the rigidity of the l-form was more optimal for interaction with natural nucleic acids.

The process opposite to supercooling, the melting of a solid above the freezing point, is much more difficult, and a solid will almost always melt at the same temperature for a given pressure. For this reason, it is the melting point which is usually identified, using melting point apparatus; even when the subject of a paper is "freezing-point determination", the actual methodology is "the principle of observing the disappearance rather than the formation of ice". It is, however, possible, at a given pressure to superheat a liquid above its boiling point without it becoming gaseous. ...

Transmembrane α-helical proteins are unusually stable judging from thermal denaturation studies, because they do not unfold completely within the membranes (the complete unfolding would require breaking down too many α-helical H-bonds in the nonpolar media). On the other hand, these proteins easily misfold, due to non-native aggregation in membranes, transition to the molten globule states, formation of non-native disulfide bonds, or unfolding of peripheral regions and nonregular loops that are locally less stable. It is also important to properly define the unfolded state. The unfolded state of membrane proteins in detergent micelles is different from that in the thermal denaturation experiments. This state represents a combination of folded hydrophobic α-helices and partially unfolded segments covered by the detergent. For example, the "unfolded" bacteriorhodopsin in SDS micelles has four transmembrane α-helices folded, while the rest of the protein is situated at the micelle-water ...

I ask because Ive used protocols for ds sequencing with go ,sucess until recently. Lately, I had alot trouble with my ds templates. I ,remember reading that Sequenase 2.0 prefers ss templates. Is it worth it to ,switch? Antone have good protocols? Thanks in advance. , ,Picard cooperj at nhlbi.nih.gov (John Cooper) asks: ,Does any one know if single stranded sequencing is really superior to ds ,sequencing? I think that you get the best consistency with single-strand templates. DS templates exhibit more variability. Its probably to have highly purified DNA. Although CsCl-prepped DNA is obviously the best, for preparing multiple templates, we DNA prepared with the normal alkaline-lysis miniprep procedure and PEG precipitate (as described, for example, in the Molecular Cloning manual). This purified DNA is then denatured according to the latest guidelines in USBs Sequenase manuals which suggest alkaline denaturation _at 37oC_. ,Antone have good protocols? Ive used the following alternative, ...

Appears very solid, with several hairline cracks across the surface of the mixture. There are two little darker circles on the middle with semi-translucent edges and centers. It is rock hard to the touch-I cant press through it at all or even make a dent. It is apparent the mixture did not solidify uniformly when I rub my finger across the surface; the darker semi-translucent areas have a bit of creamy slip, while the opaque white areas are skiddy and very hard. I can scrape up some of the mixture with the back of a fingernail and massage that into the back of my hand-it feels quite waxy and sticky. I can spread it out on the skin and it does seem to massage in, but it doesnt seem to melt at all. It leaves the skin feeling very sticky.. ...

Effects of H2O on the solution behavior of fluorine and chlorine in peralkaline sodium aluminosilicate glasses quenched from melts at high temperature (1400 °C) and pressure (1.5 GPa) were studied by combining solubility measurements and Raman spectroscopy. With increasing H2O content from 0 to ~10 wt%, the fluorine solubility increases from 3.3 to 4.4 mol% in Al-free glasses and from 6.3 to 9.3 mol% in Al-rich glasses (10 mol% Al2O3). In contrast, in the same H2O concentration range the chlorine solubility decreases from 5.7 to 3.4 mol% in Al-free glasses and from 3.6 to 1.7 mol% in Al-rich glasses.. In Al-free glasses, interaction between H2O and the silicate to depolymerize the network is Q4 + H2O ↔ Q2(H) and Q3 + H2O ↔ Q2(H). The effect of water on silicate melt structure is different in halogen-bearing melts because in hydrous melt systems both F and Cl can act to depolymerize the melt further. For fluorine, this is accomplished via formation of Si-F, Al-F, and Na-F bonding in addition ...
Wax play is a form of temperature play practiced in a BDSM context. The idea of wax play is to introduce a slight burning sensation to the skin. This is considered a moderately advanced form of play. If done wrong, wax play can cause burns severe enough to require medical attention. Paraffin Candles which typically melt at around 57 °C (135 °F). Beeswax Candles which commonly melt at around 63 °C (145 °F). Soy Candles which commonly melt at around 54 °C (130 °F). Candle additives such as dye, oils, and scents may increase the melting point. The melting point of wax can be lowered by adding mineral oil. Different types of candles produce different temperatures of wax. They can range from warm and soothing to dangerously hot wax. There is significant difference between individuals tolerance for heat, which can vary depending on exactly where the wax is applied. Wax can splatter into the eyes. Wax that is too hot can cause serious burns. Wax may be difficult to remove, particularly from ...
Denaturation Step.. Usually denaturation for 0.5-2 min at 94-95°C is sufficient, since the PCR product synthesized in the first amplification cycle is significantly shorter than the template DNA and is completely denatured under these conditions. If the amplified DNA has a very high GC content, denaturation time may be increased up to 3-4 min. Alternatively, additives facilitating DNA denaturation - glycerol (up to 10-15vol.%), DMSO (up to 10%) or formamide (up to 5%) - should be used. In the presence of such additives, the annealing temperature should be adjusted experimentally, since the melting temperature of the primer-template DNA duplex decreases significantly when these additives are used. The amount of enzyme in the reaction mix should be increased since DMSO and formamide, at the suggested concentrations, inhibit Taq DNA Polymerase by approx. 50%. Alternatively, a common way to decrease the melting temperature of the PCR product is to substitute dGTP with 7-deaza-dGTP in the reaction ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Increasing temperature accelerates protein unfolding without changing the pathway of unfolding. AU - Day, Ryan. AU - Bennion, Brian J.. AU - Ham, Sihyun. AU - Daggett, Valerie. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - We have traditionally relied on extremely elevated temperatures (498 K, 225°C) to investigate the unfolding process of proteins within the time-scale available to molecular dynamics simulations with explicit solvent. However, recent advances in computer hardware have allowed us to extend our thermal denaturation studies to much lower temperatures. Here we describe the results of simulations of chymotrypsin inhibitor 2 at seven temperatures, ranging from 298 K to 498 K. The simulation lengths vary from 94 ns to 20 ns, for a total simulation time of 344 ns, or 0.34 μs. At 298 K, the protein is very stable over the full 50 ns simulation. At 348 K, corresponding to the experimentally observed melting temperature of CI2, the protein unfolds over the first 25 ns, explores partially ...
Trifluridine (FTD), known as main component of TAS-102, is beginning to be applied as anti-tumor agent due to the highly efficacious antitumor potency although there is little to distinguish FTD structure from thymidine structure. TAS-102 has first been used in Japan in clinical therapy as an oral agent. Some experimental results hypothesized that FTD pharmacological antitumor effect can be arisen by inhibition of thymidylate synthase and incorporation of FTD itself into DNA. One of them is the thermal denaturation experiments for DNA duplexes of containing some FTD or not, performed by J. C. Markley et al. Their experiments have shown that the DNA duplexes containing FTD are slightly less stable, with a melting temperature about three degrees lower than not containing duplexes. However, the change of thermodynamic structure and inter-nucleobase interaction changes are not yet known.. In this presentation, we have performed molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and ab initio molecular orbital (MO) ...

LightCycler® 480 ResoLight Dye belongs to a new generation of dsDNA-binding dyes that can detect the presence of heteroduplexes formed during PCR (e.g., if the sample is heterozygous for a particular mutation). Its possible applications therefore exceed those of other, more traditional DNA-staining dyes, such as SYBR Green I. LightCycler® 480 ResoLight Dye is not toxic to amplification enzymes. Thus, high concentrations of the dye do not affect the PCR. These high concentrations completely saturate the dsDNA in the sample. Therefore, when dye molecules dissociate from dsDNA during melting, there is only little chance for them to re-bind to other unoccupied sites. This makes the melting process highly homogeneous and the acquired signals very sharp. Under these conditions, even small changes in the melting curve result in subtle, but reproducible changes in fluorescence..
