Towards mixed sequence recognition by triple helix formation
Research output: Contribution to journal › Literature review › peer-review
The formation of intermolecular DNA triple helices offers the possibility of designing compounds with extensive sequence recognition properties which may be useful as antigene agents or tools in molecular biology. One major limitation of this approach is that these structures are generally restricted to homopurine-homopyrimidine target sites. This review describes the strategies that have been employed to overcome this drawback and outlines the potential for triplex formation at mixed sequence DNA targets.
