Theoretical study of sequence selectivity and preferred binding mode of psoralen with DNA

Abstract [en]

Psoralen interaction with two models of DNA was investigated using molecular mechanics and molecular dynamics methods. Calculated energies of minor groove binding and intercalation were compared in order to define a preferred binding mode for the ligand.We found that both binding modes are possible, explaining the low efficiency for monoadduct formation from intercalated ligands. A comparison between the interaction energy for intercalation between different base pairs suggests that the observed sequence selectivity is due to favorable intercalation in 5'-TpA in (AT)n sequences.
