The contribution of sequence elements of human telomere DNA to the interaction of DNA with electrons has been analyzed. By applying wavelength dependent low-energy photoelectron transmission and two-photon photoemission spectroscopy, we investigated the density of states of DNA oligomers with partial sequence elements of the human telomere assembled as monolayers on gold. The findings demonstrate the role of the resonance states in the DNA in accepting electrons and the effect of the sequence on these states. When guanine (G) bases are clustered together, the resonance negative ion state is stabilized, as compared to oligomers containing the same number of G bases but distributed within the sequence. The electron-capturing probability of the human telomere-like oligomer, a sequence with an additional single adenine (A) base adjacent to the G cluster, is dramatically enhanced compared to the other oligomers studied, most likely due to the enhancement of the density of states near the highest occupied molecular orbital.
