Paper Abstract

DNA as a biopolymeric molecule standing directly in the center of the molecular biological processing in the cell exhibits a pronounced polymorphism. Infrared spectroscopy (IRS) is a very suitable tool to perform conformational analyses of DNA especially when using its Fourier transform (FT) version and/or the linear dichroism (LD). Spectral features of the sugar-phosphate backbone and of the bases of DNA can be utilized to characterize aspects of DNA conformation as illustrated for the A and B forms and for the unusual parallel-stranded (ps) form of DNA, respectively.
