General

DNA

B DNA

  • radius: 100 nm
  • pitch: 340 nm/turn
  • minor groove angle: 137.5078°
  • Twist angle of 34.7°
  • frequency: 10.4 bases/turn
  • The roll and tilt angles vary by a few degrees depending on the basepairs. The dinucleotide AA (or TT) causes significant variations in the roll and tilt angles
