Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We show that DNA containing a conformationally-locked anti analogue of O(6)-alkylguanine is a poor substrate for human O(6)-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) and the alkyltransferase-like protein, Atl1. This highlights the requirement for the syn conformation and rationalises why certain O(6)-alkylguanines are poor MGMT substrates.
