Stabilization of mixed frenkel-charge transfer excitons extended across both strands of guanine-cytosine DNA duplexes (68 views)

Huix-Rotllant M, Brazard J, Improta R, Burghardt I, Markovitsi D

J Phys Chem Lett (ISSN: 1948-7185, 1948-7185electronic), 2015; 6(12): 2247-2251.

The photoreactive pathways that may lead to DNA damage depend crucially upon the nature of the excited electronic states. The study of alternating guanine-cytosine duplexes by fluorescence spectroscopy and quantum mechanical calculations identifies a novel type of excited states that can be populated following UVB excitation. These states, denoted High-energy Emitting Long-lived Mixed (HELM) states, extend across both strands and arise from mixing between cytosine Frenkel excitons and guanine-to-cytosine charge transfer states. They emit at energies higher than ππ∗ states localized on single bases, survive for several nanoseconds, are sensitive to the ionic strength of the solution, and are strongly affected by the structural transition from the B form to the Z form. Their impact on the formation of lesions of the genetic code needs to be assessed. © 2015 American Chemical Society.
