Interactions of helical structures as a molecular basis of intra- and intercellular interactions
Two types of formation of super spirals by spiral counter- and co-intertwining of spiral molecular strings were identified using chiral biomimetics. An earlier statement on the formation of hierarchies of super-spiral structures with an alternating chirality sign in molecular homochiral systems was experimentally proven. By developing the Euler model, estimates of forces and velocities in systems of interacting spiral structures that quantitatively correspond to the characteristic times and dimensions of intracellular and inter-cellular interactions were theoretically obtained. It was shown that the phase of structure formation in the cell is not limiting and the time of formation of intracellular structures is determined by the time that is necessary for the cell to choose a functional program.
