A range of related nucleic acid models has been built using the computer graphics system at EMBL (Heidelberg). The relationship between these models is considered in terms of a simple "core" structure. One of these models is a four-strand structure in which two duplexes of the Watson-Crick kind are specifically related by a twofold rotation axis and which has already been discussed in some detail. The models fall into two principal classes. In one, each sugar phosphate chain is attached to… CONTINUE READING
