Figure 3
Figure 3 A possible mechanism which involves the exocyclic amine moiety on C as the proton donor of the one-electron oxidized base pair in which the initial charge sits on G, i. e. in the complementary strand. Spin-charge separation between G and C plays a crucial role in the reaction cascade. The depicted deprotonation can lead to the formation of G(-H)-C[34].
