We report the properties of hydrophobic isosteres of pyrimidines and purines in synthetic DNA duplexes.
Phenyl nucleosides 1 and 2 are nonpolar isosteres of. The nitrogenous bases are positioned inside the helix structure like "rungs on a ladder," due to the hydrophobic effect, and stabilized by hydrogen bonding.
DNA base pairs--called complementary base pairing hydrogen bonds also held together via forces generated by the hydrophobic effect and pi-stacking.
It is essential that a balance of positive and negative charges exist to ensure that the binding is generally not too strong, so avoiding excessive binding friction except where required. The double helical structure of normal DNA takes a right-handed form called the B-helix.
The lactam predominates at pH 7. The major groove is barely apparent in Z-DNA, and the minor groove is narrow and deep. Epigenetic inheritance are changes in the gene activity that are not encoded by the DNA sequence.

|The decreased absorbance observed with the DNA double helix with respect to the native and denatured forms is explained by the fact that the stacking of the nitrogenous bases that takes place with the double helix does not leave them as exposed to radiation and thus they are able to absorb less.
Another disadvantage is its inability to define the orientation of water molecules.
Structural variations in DNA can occur if: 1. The Z form is about 18 angstroms and there are 12 base pairs per helical turn, and the structure appears more slender and elongated. One groove is smaller than the other.
The hydrogen bonds between the base pairs form the double helical As the cellular environment is aqueous and polar, the hydrophobic. The purine and pyrimidine bases can be viewed as amphipathic. Shown below, first image, is a space filling model of adenine. It is planar with.
The hydration of the B-DNA minor groove is dependent on the DNA sequence with water-bridge lifetimes varying from 1 to ps [ ], depending on the sequence.

They are quite water soluble. All these hydrogen bonds are strengthened and protected from solvent hydration by the hydrophobic stacking of the bases, f which is a major contributor to the helix stability.
DNA sequences can flip from a B form to a Z form and vice versa.
