Title

Contrasting views of the internal dynamics of the Hhal methyltransferase target DNA reported by solution and solid-state NMR spectroscopy

Abstract

Solution and solid-state NMR have been used conjointly to probe the internal motions of a DNA dodecamer containing the recognition site for the HhaI methyltransferase. The results strongly suggest that ns-μs motions contribute to the functionally relevant dynamic properties of nucleic acids during DNA methylation.
