Abstract

The possible existence of nucleic acids in right-handed and left-handed helical forms is considered. A statistical mechanical model is developed to obtain an expression for a change in twist during helical transformation in terms of corresponding free energies and linking for a supercoiled DNA. The theoretically predicted values are compared with those determined experimentally. The physico-chemical significance of the parameters is discussed.
