Abstract

Various binding sites in DNA bases and base pairs as predicted by rigorous analysis of the molecular electrostatic potential (MESP) are explored for coordination with Li+ and Ca2+ cations; the electrostatics is generally seen to provide an explanation for the observed trends in binding upon subjecting the anticipated structures to optimization at a high level ab initio theory.
