Abstract: The effect of backbone ζ torsion angle on low energy single base opening in the available B-DNA crystal duplex structures has been studied. This work is based on our earlier method in which ζ torsion angle (C3'-O3'-P-O5') has been identified as the reaction coordinate for the opening process. Our results show a strong correlation between the magnitude of base displacement and the equilibrium ζeq angle. In all the crystal structures studied, the magnitude follows a periodic pattern with largest value at ζeq~-100° and minimum at ~-217°. The effect of other backbone torsion angles on base opening is also discussed.
