AT-rich DNA is mainly found in non-coding regions in eukaryotes, it represents a large portion of genomes. It is known that some of these non-coding regions play an important role in regulation, transcription and signaling. Some proteins interact with AT-rich DNA as architectural proteins that affect cellular functions by modulating chromatin structure. Moreover DNA of several pathogens is very rich in AT base pairs. Typical examples include the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum which has 8...
