- The non-canonical structures of nucleic acids are essential for their diverse functions during various biological processes. These non-canonical structures can undergo conformational exchange among multiple structural states. Data on their dynamics can illustrate conformational transitions that play important roles in folding, stability, and biological function. Here, we discuss several examples of the non-canonical structures of DNA focusing on their dynamic characterization by NMR spectroscopy: (1) G-quadruplex structures and their complexes with target proteins; (2) i-motif structures and their complexes with proteins; (3) triplex structures; (4) left-handed Z-DNAs and their complexes with various Z-DNA binding proteins. This review provides insight into how the dynamic features of non-canonical DNA structures contribute to essential biological processes.
