DNA oligonucleotides that have repetitive tracts of guanine bases can form G-quadruplex structures that display an amazing polymorphism. Structures of several new G-quadruplexes have been solved recently that greatly expand the known structural motifs observed in nucleic acid quadruplexes. Base triads, base hexads, and quartets that contain cytosine have recently been identified stacked over the familiar G-quartets. The current status of the diverse array of structural features in quadruplexes...[Show more]
