Computer simulation studies of the fidelity of DNA polymerases.

Abstract:

Computer simulations can provide in principle quantitative correlation between the structures of DNA polymerases and the replication fidelity. This paper describes our progress in this direction. Using several theoretical approaches, including the free energy perturbation (FEP), linear response approximation (LRA), and the empirical valence bond (EVB) methods, we examined the stability of several mismatched base pairs in DNA duplex in aqueous solution, the contribution of binding energy to the fidelity of DNA polymerases beta and T7, and the mechanism and energetics of the polymerization reaction catalyzed by T7 DNA polymerase.

Sorting:

Tables may be sorted by clicking on any of the column titles. A second click reverses the sort order. <Ctrl> + click on the column titles to sort by more than one column (e.g. family then name).

Filtering:

It is also possible to filter the table by typing into the search box above the table. This will instantly hide lines from the table that do not contain your search text.
