Canonical, right-handed B-DNA can be transformed into noncanonical, left-handed Z-DNA in vitro at high salt concentrations or in vivo under physiological conditions. The molecular mechanism of this drastic conformational transition is still unknown despite numerous studies. Inspired by the crystal structure of a B-Z junction and the previous zipper model… CONTINUE READING
