An elastic model for double-stranded polymers is constructed to study the recently observed entropic elasticity, cooperative extensibility, and supercoiling property. With the introduction of a n structural parameter (the folding angle w), bending deformations of sugar-phosphate backbones, ste effects of nucleotide base pairs, and base-stacking interactions are considered. The compreh agreements between theory and experiments both on torsionally relaxed DNA and on negatively s coiled DNA… CONTINUE READING
