The resonances of the protonated carbons of [d(TAGCGCTA)]2 have been assigned by the two-dimensional proton-detected double-quantum heteronuclear correlation experiment ([1Hl3C]-DQCOSY).13C-coupled andl3C-decoupled versions of the experiment were used. The assignment method is discussed in detail. The deoxyribose cross peaks segregate into five well-resolved regions, and the base cross peaks have distinct features that are helpful for assignments. The cross peaks from the ‘H-13C pairs at the Cyd5, Ado2 and ThdCH3 base positions fall in separate regions of the spectrum from each other; they also are resolved from the closely spaced Ado8, Guo8, Cyd6 and Thd6. Additional parameters for distinction of the base signals are their differing J-coupling values and long-range coupling patterns.
