Abstract

We present a comparative analysis of an NMR experiment and molecular and harmonic dynamics simulations of an actinomycin D: D(ATGCA1)2 complex. A comparison of NOE measurements and l/R6 weighted proton-proton distances confirm the general correctness of the Actinomycin D·DNA model proposed by Sobell. There are, however, some substantial differences between the proton-proton distances inferred from the NOE results and the molecular and harmonic dynamics simulations. The remaining discrepancies could either come from contributions of other conformations to the average properties of the complex or from uncertainties in the NMR distance analysis. An analysis of the molecular dynamics helix properties, sugar puckers, hydrogen bonding, rms fluctuations and torsional properties are qualitatively consistent with those from previous simulations, but the presence of an intercalated drug leads to some new structural and dynamical features.
