DNA bending: the prevalence of kinkiness and the virtues of normality.


DNA bending in 86 complexes with sequence-specific proteins has been examined using normal vector plots, matrices of normal vector angles between all base pairs in the helix, and one-digit roll/slide/twist tables. FREEHELIX, a new program especially designed to analyze severely bent and kinked duplexes, generates the foregoing quantities plus local roll… (More)
