Angewandte Chemie paper accepted!

picture1Collaborative work with Carmen Galan’s group has just been published in Angewandte Chemie. The paper details the synthesis of a stiff-stillbene ligand which induces conformational unfolding of G-quadruplex. Upon 400 nm irradiation this effect can be reversed via photooxidation of the ligand. Remarkably, the conformation of G4 DNA was switched 5 times.
