The fluidity of torsional stress along the DNA chain

The fluid changes in conformation and free energy of the DNA helix are influenced by many processes including the binding of proteins, some of which may have a regulatory function. Thus binding of a protein in one position along a DNA chain could result in alterations in the topology of the DNA, and hence changes in free energy availability, both locally and at some distance from the binding site. Changes in torsional energy may serve as an indicator of the state of the surrounding helix. For

2.5.4 Melting and structure

For those polymers which can crystallise, one would expect some relation between chain rotation and melting. Since all crystallisation demands that chains form an ordered conformation (e.g. the PE planar zig-zag) before they can pack together, the chance of this happening should be related to the ease of twisting into the required conformation.
