Superhelical torsion in cellular DNA responds directly to environmental and genetic factors.

Abstract

Superhelical tension of DNA in living bacteria is believed to be partially constrained by interaction with proteins. Yet DNA topology is a significant factor in a number of genetic functions and is apparently affected by both genetic and environmental influences. We have employed a technique that allows us to estimate the level of unconstrained superhelical… (More)
