DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC acid is a linear polyelectrolyte and a highly asymmetric macromolecule. A specimen, kindly supplied by Dr. K. A. Stacey of the Chester Beatty Research Institute, has been studied in aqueous solution. It was prepared from herring testes by the sodium dodecyl sulphate technique. Dielectric dispersion curves at radio-frequencies have been… CONTINUE READING
