Near UV CD spectra, UV absorption spectra and their first derivatives have been recorded on poly d(A-T).poly d(A-T) solutions in presence of high NaCl concentration and various amounts of NiCl2. Comparison of the results presented here with those obtained for poly d(G-C).poly d(G-C) and poly d(A-C).poly d(G-T) in comparable conditions, and the I.R. and Raman data on poly d(A-T).poly d(A-T), allows us to assign the new spectra to the Z conformation of poly d(A-T).poly d(A-T) in solution.
