Superhelices in steady-state configurations of molecules of the DNA type
Steady-state configurations of molecules of the DNA type are analyzed. The elastic anisotropy of the molecules is taken into account, as are the existence of spontaneously deformed states, external factors, and the interactions of various types of deformations. Depending on the values of the parameters characterizing these effects, various types of steady-state structures are found: ordered and slightly deformed helices, superhelices which form "windings" of an original helix on surfaces of some sort, closed and periodic or quasiperiodic configurations, disordered balls, and structures with intermittent ordered and disordered regions. © 1994 American Institute of Physics.
