Origin of homochirality of amino acids is one of the most important subjects for origins of life. Recently, it is thought that homochirality was achieved in the space environment. In order to confirm this hypothesis, small amount of enantiomeric r...

A G-quadruplex DNA is composed of stacked G-quartets, each of which involves the planar association of four guanine bases. The size and planarity of a G-quartet are well-suited for interacting with a porphyrin ring through π-π stacking. The comple...
