Specificity of Photochemical Cross-Linking in Protein-Nucleic Acid Complexes
The active study of protein-nucleic acid interactions in recent years, has emphasized the critical role these interactions play in life processes and their control. The high affinities observed in protein-nucleic acid complexes, can be accounted for by assuming the occurrence of simultaneous interactions of a number of functional groups on the two partners. However, the molecular mechanism upon which these specific interactions are based is not yet understood in detail.
