AT Base Pairs Are Less Stable than GC Base Pairs in Z-DNA: The Crystal Structure of d(m(5)CGTAm(5)CG) 
Cell(Cambridge,Mass.), 37, pp. 321 - 331, 1984.

Experimental Information:

X-RAY DIFFRACTION

Space Group:

P 21 21 21

Cell Constants:

a = 17.91   b = 30.43   c = 44.96 (Ångstroms)

α = 90.0   β = 90.0   γ = 90.0 (degrees)

Refinement:

The structure was refined using the NUCLSQ program. The R value is 0.16 for 5412 reflections in the resolution range 0.0 to 1.2 Ångstroms with Fobs >  0.0 sigma(Fobs) and with I >  1.5 sigma(I)
