      Abstract:

      Small molecule−DNA hybrids with only two parallel DNA   duplexes (rSMDH2)   displayed sharper melting profiles compared to unmodified DNA   duplexes, consistent with predictions from neighboring-duplex   theory. Using adjusted thermodynamic parameters obtained from a   coarse-grain dynamic simulation, the experimental data fit well   to an analytical model.
