Abstract

The binding constant of a homopyrimidine oligonucleotide with its target duplex for the pyrimidine-motif triplex formation at neutral pH was analyzed and found to be remarkably higher in the presence of the poly (L-lysine)- graft-dextran copolymer than that without any triplex stabilizer or in the presence of spermine. The promoting effect mainly results from the considerable increase in the association rate constant.
