3.2 Higher-order DNA structures: DNA twisting and torsional effects

There is, however, another important contributor to the structure of DNA that is found within the cell. The DNA helix is actually under a torsional stress due to what is called DNA twisting, which arises when the two strands of the helix are twisted around the axis, as shown in Figure 11a.
