Abstract

A single-molecule strategy using atomic force microscopy has simply yet robustly probed an intercalation binding related specific structural relaxation of covalently closed circular pBR322 DNA as well as double-strand elongation in its linear form by taking advantage of a new psoralen derivative, N,N,N-trimethyl-1-(2,5,9-trimethyl-7-oxo-7Hfuro[3,2-g]chromen-3-yl) methanaminium chloride, that covalently binds to DNA through a photo-crosslinking reaction.
