Abstract

DNA weaves a braided pattern: Two DNA single strands with mixed D- and L- nucleotides combine to weave a braided toroidal link. 5′,5′ linkages (fused circles) and 3′,3′ linkages (bow-tie structures) are needed to maintain the strand polarity. Properly placed L-nucleotides are needed to achieve the woven pattern.
