Molecular dynamics at T=310 K MD  of the tri-nucleosome complex in ionized water. Left: the starting configuration; right: final configuration after 300 ns of MD. The DNA is in blue, histones silver, ions indicated by points.

The interrogation complex hOGG1/DNA after 500 ns of  MD equilibration at T=310K in TIP3P water with 0.1M NaCl. As observed in the experimental configuration, OGG1 (color ribbons) grabs the DNA (white) containing the 8-oxoG at two distinct sites: the purple region holds the 8-oxoG and everts the whole nucleotide into extra-helical conformation (white spheres); the green region holds DNA at the distance of about one-half turn.
