Abstract

Previous studies have shown that the c-myc nuclease sensitive element (NSE) is capable of forming H-DNA in vitro. The NSE sequence exhibits strong purine/ pyrimidine strand asymmetry. To study the NSE further, we have isolated the element from other c-myc sequences and have shown that the NSE alone is sufficient for the formation of H-DNA in supercoiled plasmids. We also show that the NSE forms a complex structure containing both H-y3 and H-y5 H-DNA. We term this structure tandem H-DNA.
