Multiple Electronic and Structural Factors Control Cyclobutane Pyrimidine Dimer and 6-4 Thymine-Thymine Photodimerization in a DNA Duplex (1 views)

The T-T photodimerization paths leading to the formation of cyclobutane pyrimidine dimer (CPD) and 6-4 pyrimidine pyrimidone (64-PP), the two main DNA photolesions, have been resolved for a T-T step in a DNA duplex by two complementary state-of-the-art quantum mechanical approaches: QM(CASPT2//CASSCF)/MM and TD-DFT/PCM. Based on the analysis of several different representative structures, we define a new-ensemble of cooperating geometrical and electronic factors (besides the distance between the reacting bonds) ruling T-T photodimerization in DNA. CPD is formed by a barrierless path on an exciton state delocalized over the two bases. Large interbase stacking and shift values, together with a small pseudorotation phase angle for T at the 3'-end, favor this reaction. The oxetane intermediate, leading to a 64-PP adduct, is formed on a singlet T-->T charge-transfer state and is favored by a large interbase angle and slide values. A small energy barrier (<0.3 eV) is associated to this path, likely contributing to the smaller quantum yield observed for this process. Eventually, a clear directionality is always shown by the electronic excitation characterizing the singlet photoactive state driving the photodimerization process: an exciton that is more localized on T(3) and a 5'-T-->3'-T charge transfer for CPD and oxetane formation, respectively, thus calling for specific electronic constraints.
