Contents:
Methods for Studying Nucleic Acid Structure. -- The building-blocks of DNA and RNA. -- DNA Structure as Observed in Fibres and Crystals. -- DNA-DNA recognition: non-standard and higher-order DNA structures. -- Principles of small molecule-DNA Recognition. -- The RNA structural world. -- Principles of Protein-DNA Recognition.
Methods for studying nucleic acid structure -- The building blocks of DNA and RNA -- DNA structure as observed in fibers and crystals -- Nonstandard and higher-order DNA structures : DNA-DNA recognition -- Principles of small molecule-DNA recognition -- RNA structures and their diversity -- Principles of protein-DNA recognition.
Summary: This unique and practical resource provides the most complete and concise summary of underlying principles and approaches to studying nucleic acid structure, including discussion of x-ray crystallography, NMR, molecular modelling, and databases. Its focus is on a survey of structures especially important for biomedical research and pharmacological applications. To aid novices, the book includes an introduction to technical lingo used to describe nucleic acid structure and conformations (roll, slide, twist, buckle, etc.). This completely updated edition features expanded coverage of the latest advances relevant to recognition of DNA and RNA by small molecules and proteins. In particular, the reader will find extensive new discussions on: RNA folding, ribosome structure and antibiotic interactions, DNA quadruplexes, DNA and RNA protein complexes, and short interfering RNA (siRNA). This handy guide ends with a complete list of resources, including relevant online databases and software. * Completely updated with expanded discussion of topics such as RNA folding, ribosome structure and antibiotic interactions, DNA quadruplexes, DNA and RNA protein complexes, and short interfering RNA (siRNA) * Includes a complete list of resources, including relevant online databases and software * Defines technical lingo for novices.
