The H1',H2' and H2″ regions of the 270-MHz PMR spectra of two deoxydinucleotides, d-pTpA and d-pApT, have been analyzed. The coupling constants in the sugar ring indicate that both A and T sugars have a tendency to acquire 2E conformations. There is also a marginal difference in the 2E populations of the T sugar in the two dinucleotides. The trends in the chemical shifts of base protons indicate different stacking of the bases in d-pApT and d-pTpA. The sequence effects on base stacking and pentose conformation are discussed.
