Theoretical studies of nucleic acid conformation: potential energies, chain statistics, and model building

  • Wilma K. Olson
Part of the Topics in Molecular and Structural Biology book series (TMSB)

Abstract

Theoretical investigations of nucleic acid conformation* attempt to find a rational connection between the chemical architecture of the polynucleotides and their macroscopic properties. The field involves conformational energy analyses, molecular model building schemes, and statistical mechanical treatments of polymer chain flexibility. As outlined below, the collected results provide considerable insight into the influence of primary covalent bond structure upon the three-dimensional geometry of these macromolecules and additionally clarify the relationship between the various spatial arrangements and the configuration-dependent properties of the polynucleotide as a whole.
