The refined solution structure for the ring-opened N2-(3-oxo-1-propenyl)-dG derivative of the malondialdehyde deoxyguanosine adduct M(1)G [3-(2'-deoxy-beta-D-erythro-pentofuranosyl)pyrimido[1, 2-a]purin-10(3H)-one] in d(ATCGCXCGGCATG) x d(CATGCCGCGCGAT) [X being N(2)-(3-oxo-1-propenyl)-dG], containing the d(CpG)(3) frameshift hotspot of the Salmonella typhimurium hisD3052 gene, is presented. When inserted into this duplex, M(1)G underwent spontaneous ring opening to N2-(3-oxo-1-propenyl)-dG. NMR analysis revealed that N2-(3-oxo-1-propenyl)-dG induced minor structural perturbations in the hisD3052 oligodeoxynucleotide. However, the stability of the duplex DNA was reduced; the N2-(3-oxo-1-propenyl)-dG-modified hisD3052 oligodeoxynucleotide exhibited a 14 degrees C decrease in T(m) relative to that of the native oligodeoxynucleotide. The modified guanine maintained stacking interactions with neighboring bases but was not Watson-Crick hydrogen bonded. A total of 13 NOEs were observed from the 3-oxo-1-propenyl moiety protons of N2-(3-oxo-1-propenyl)-dG to DNA protons. Molecular dynamics calculations, restrained by 602 distance restraints derived from experimental NOE measurements and 23 empirical distance restraints, converged with pairwise rmsd differences of <0.90 A. The sixth-root residual factor with the NMR data was 9.1 x 10(-2). The cytosine complementary to N2-(3-oxo-1-propenyl)-dG was pushed toward the major groove but maintained partial stacking interactions with its neighboring bases. The modified guanine remained in the anti conformation, while the 3-oxo-1-propenyl moiety was positioned in the minor groove of the duplex. Possible correlations between the relatively small structural perturbations induced in this DNA duplex by N2-(3-oxo-1-propenyl)-dG and the mutagenic spectrum of M(1)G are discussed.
