Method p.569 right column top paragraph:"[Investigators] obtain stacking free energy parameters by studying the equilibrium between stacked and unstacked form of DNA nick schematically presented in Figure 1a. The DNA molecule in the stacked state is very close the molecule without the lesion (42–49)."
Comments p.567 right column 2nd paragraph:"Individual stacking parameters are listed in Supplementary Table 2 and are plotted as a function of temperature in Figure 3a." p.568 right column 2nd paragraph:"[Investigators] studied eight A•T-containing and eight G•C-containing nicked dinucleotide stacks. Like in the experiments on the temperature dependence of stacking parameters described above, for each KL contact [they] examined KL/F and KL/R molecules and the stacking parameter was obtained as their average in case of unique contacts (AT, TA, GC and CG). In case of stacks with dyad symmetry, [they] also average ?G[ST]KL values of equivalent stacks. Individual stacking parameters are plotted in Figure 3b and listed in Supplementary Table 3."
