Figure 4. Succession of configurations illustrating the rigid-body motions that transform the associations of G and A between different pairing modes. Images are of adenine oriented with respect to a common coordinate frame on guanine. Structures are generated with 3DNA(24) using the average rigid-body parameters reported in Table 1. Base pairs are color-coded by interaction mode (Figures 1–3), with the minor (II) substates of m±W and m–M pairs noted by lighter hues. Pathways connect (a) antiparallel m–m, m–WI, m–WII, W–W, m–MI, and m–MII states and (b) parallel m+m, m+WII, m+WI, and m+M states. Note the counterclockwise rotation of ribose C1′ atoms (darkened spheres) along the top-to-bottom transformation of antiparallel pairs and the clockwise rotation along the corresponding progression of parallel pairs. Hydrogen bonds between base atoms are depicted by thin dashed lines.
