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

As discussed earlier, the helical nature of DNA results for the most part from the properties of the bases, their interactions and the geometry of the helix itself. 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.
