DSSR-derived G-quadruplex features in PDB entry 3nz7
- X-ray (1.1 Å)
- A bimolecular anti-parallel-stranded oxytricha nova telomeric quadruplex in complex with a 3,6-disubstituted acridine ligand containing bis-3-fluoropyrrolidine end side chains
- Campbell, N.H., Smith, D.L., Reszka, A.P., Neidle, S., O'Hagan, D.: (2011) "Fluorine in medicinal chemistry: beta-fluorination of peripheral pyrrolidines attached to acridine ligands affects their interactions with G-quadruplex DNA." Org.Biomol.Chem., 9, 1328-1331.
- Comparative X-ray structure studies reveal that C-F bond incorporation into the peripheral pyrrolidine moieties of the G-quadruplex DNA binding ligand BSU6039 leads to a distinct pyrrolidine ring conformation, relative to the non-fluorinated analogue, and with a different binding mode involving reversal of the pyrrolidinium N(+)-H orientation.

In DSSR, a G4-helix is defined by stacking interactions of G-tetrads, regardless of backbone connectivity, and may contain more than one G4-stem.
Helix#1, 4 G-tetrad layers, inter-molecular, with 1 stem
In DSSR, a G4-stem is defined as a G4-helix with backbone connectivity. Bulges are also allowed along each of the four strands.
