Deoxyribonucleic Acid Structure: A New Model
Preview not available

Abstract

Models of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) having chain directions opposite to those of the Watson and Crick model offer strikingly different alternatives for DNA structures. Satisfactory models of the B and C forms of DNA have been built. Left-handed models readily form by twisting right-handed ones, and models can be bent into tight supercoils.
