A simplified single virtual bond scheme has been developed for the calculation of mean-square unperturbed dimensions in polynucleotide chains. As a consequence of the structural rigidity of the sugar residues in the chain, it is possible to represent the six chemical bonds comprising the chain backbone repeating unit by a single virtual bond (connecting successive phosphorus atoms). The mutual orientation of a pair of adjoining virtual bonds is determined by the angles of rotation about the… CONTINUE READING
