Abstract

An overview is given of results that reestablish hydrogen bonding as an essential factor in DNA replication involving natural bases as well as less polar mimics and they also confirm the importance of steric factors, in line with Kool's experimental work. In addition they show that knowledge of the hydrogen bonding mechanism helps understanding the behavior of these bonds if they are deformed.
