Battle for the bulge: Directing small molecules to DNA and RNA defects

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

3 Scopus citations


Small molecules were tailored to specifically bind bulged DNA by complementing the geometry and nucleotide size of the bulge site. The prospect of generating small molecules that influence the secondary structure of DNA and RNA holds great promise for clinical applications.
