Herein, by using NMR spectroscopy, we investigate the equilibrium between monomeric and 5′–5′ stacked dimeric propeller-type G-quadruplexes that are formed by DNA sequences containing GGGT motifs. We show that the monomer–dimer equilibrium depends on a number of parameters, including the DNA concentration, DNA flanking sequences, the concentration and type of cations, and the temperature. We report on the high-definition structure of a simple monomeric G-quadruplex containing three single-residue loops, which could serve as a reference for propeller-type G-quadruplex structures in solution.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/99416
