Abstract :

The interactions between the two boxes A and B of HMG 1 and cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II)-modified DNA containing a single intrastrand cross-link at the d(GpG) site were studied by DNase I footprinting and circular dichroism. The DNAase I cleavage patterns of the HMG box-platinated DNA complexes are identical, the two boxes inhibiting the DNase I cutting over at least 15 and 12 nucleotide residues in the platinated strand and the complementary strand, respectively As judged by circular dichroism, the two boxes have the same a-helical content (56%) and they induce the same conformational changes in the platinated DNA.
