How Do Long Improper Purine-Purine Pairs of DNA Bases Adapt The Enzymatycally Competent Conformation? Structural Mechanism And Its Quantum-Mechanical Grounds

Section: Soft matter
Language: English

Abstract: Aimed at the answer the biophysically important question posed in the title of this article, we have first investigated, at the MP2/aug-cc-pVDZ//B3LYP/6–311++G(d,p) level of quantummechanical theory, the structural, energetic, and dynamic features of the acquisition of the enzymatically competent conformation by the incorrect А*·А(WC), G·A(WC), A*·G*(WC), and G*·G(WC) DNA base mispairs with the Watson–Crick (WC) geometry – active players on the field of spontaneous point mutagenesis. It is first shown that the characteristic time of these non-dissociative A*·A(WC)-A*·Asyn(TF), G·A(WC)-G·Asyn, A*·G*(WC)-A*·G* syn, and G·G*(WC)-G·G* syn conformational transitions is much less than the period of time that it is spent by a high-fidelity DNA-polymerase on the incorporation of one nucleotide into the DNA double helix.

Key words: DNA biosynthesis, spontaneous transversion, large-amplitude rearrangement, conformational transition, Watson–Crick-like mispair, purine-purine DNA mismatch, MP2 and B3LYP, QTAIM.
